From politics to poetry, protests to pedagogy, pulpits to pews, The Commons is an online-only magazine where artists, activists, and academics explore the place of religion in public life. Decidedly interdisciplinary and interreligious, The Commons features work from scholars, poets, community organizers, photographers, religious clergy, and others who write for an engaged public, tell a good story, analyze a current topic, lift up local community work, and offer guidance for the perplexed.
Operating as a companion to the peer-reviewed journal CrossCurrents, and our summer colloquia, The Commons extends the mission of APRIL to a broader public, making links and responding to relevant topics. We will regularly repost articles that originally appeared in CrossCurrents as well as publish brand new material that weaves in and out of topics published in special issues in the journal.
