U.Va.’s Hedgehog Review Is Named Best New Journal

January 12, 2001 -- The Hedgehog Review, a wide-ranging scholarly journal of critical reflections on contemporary culture, published by the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture at the University of Virginia, has been selected as Best New Journal by the Council of Editors of Learned Journals. An award was presented at the Modern Language Association’s annual convention last month in Washington, D.C.

The interdisciplinary journal, which focuses on one question or theme each issue, was described by the judges as "intellectually vibrant," "thought-provoking and useful," "exciting" and "ambitiously conceived." It is edited by Jennifer L. Geddes, fellow and co-program director at the institute and research assistant professor in religious studies. James Davison Hunter, the William R. Kenan Professor of Sociology and Religion and director of the institute, is the journal’s executive editor.

On receiving the award, Geddes said: "We are delighted to have this recognition so early in our publishing history. We will strive to be a vital forum for important cultural issues."

Launched in fall 1999 and published three times a year, the review has addressed such cultural themes as identity, democracy, evil, and today’s university, with articles, reviews and annotated bibliographies by scholars in a variety of disciplines.

Future themes include diversity, the body, pragmatism, technology, and individualism.
