About Us

Soapbox is an open-access platform for cultural analysis, run by graduate students based in Amsterdam.

The website and each biannual issue give the floor to students, PhDs and young researchers (curators, artists, etc.). We publish forward-thinking, experimental, and interdisciplinary work on a broad range of cultural artefacts, concepts and phenomena within the humanities. As well as providing a route to publication, both platforms showcase and adapt for a wider audience the existing work of cultural analysis and other humanities students, in the Netherlands and beyond.
