About this Journal
The mission of Catalyst: A Social Justice Forum is to bring together research and multimedia from multiple disciplines that is oriented toward the understanding and practice of social justice, broadly defined. By offering an innovative, peer-reviewed space open to rigorous research from all disciplines, as well as offerings from outside of academia, we hope to push the ideals of social justice to new levels.
Catalyst publishes research findings, essays, film, photos, and other multimedia offerings in an on-line format. We encourage submissions from researchers, students, activists, and others interested in building a dialogue surrounding how to create a more just world.
By bringing together research and art from myriad places, we hope to foster communication between the academic disciplines and the community at large. Because Catalyst is open-access, anyone across the world with an internet connection can access all content at no cost. We feel that this open-knowledge format can help to spread research far and wide in order to address the problems that our global society faces today.
