Basic Information

Atenea is a biannual publication from the Universidad de Concepción. Created in 1924 as a platform for circulating research conducted at the Universidad of Concepción, Atenea is currently an indexed research journal that meets the highest standards for academic publications, both nationally and internationally, while continuing to contribute to the scope and mission of an institution of higher learning.

In recognition of this dual vocation, Atenea is conceived as multi-disciplinary journal that, together with inter and trans-disciplinary perspectives, covers the Social Sciences (Anthropology, Sociology, Psychology, Political Science, Social Work, Architecture, Urbanism and Heritage Studies), Humanities (Philosophy, History, Literary Studies, Linguistics, Cultural Studies, and Gender Studies) and the Arts (Visual, Performance and Music).

Our objective is to publish studies in the form of articles and notes that communicate the results of research projects, either completed or in course, that contribute to current debates on culture and society in Chile, Latin America and the world.

Atenea receives submissions of articles and notes once a year from March 1st to May 30th.

The editorial committee likewise welcomes submissions of book reviews on works related to its scope and mission that have been published in the previous 2 years. Preference is given to significant reflections and contributions to the disciplines within the journal’s purview, as well as book-length essays and theoretical studies. Book reviews may be submitted throughout the year.

In view of Atenea´s multi-disciplinary focus, all articles, essays and reviews should situate their contributions within a broader academic context.

In addition to the foregoing, Atenea welcomes proposals throughout the year for dossiers focused on current debates within the fields covered by the journal.
