Emergence is the University of Southampton's Humanities Graduate School postgraduate research journal.

Founded in 2009 as a proceedings of the GradNet annual conference, Emergence has expanded into a showcase of some of the most compelling research carried out by postgraduates in a range of disciplines within the humanities. In keeping with the spirit of GradNet, Emergence is entirely staffed by students who fulfil the central roles of editorial and design. Their efforts are supported by the Humanities Graduate School and the University of Southampton Print Centre.

Every volume of the journal is available for download through our archive. Print copies are also available through GradNet.

Emergence is published every Autumn by GradNet. If you would like to get involved with the journal, either as a contributor or staff member, please email:
