Far From Local: policy and practice (of art and culture) around the globe

e-merge: journal of arts administration and policy

e-merge is an online journal produced by graduate students in the School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Master of Arts Administration and Policy program, featuring collaborations with guest editors from the SAIC community. It features original, pioneering theory and practice in the field of arts administration and related domains. We seek to engage with issues related to arts administration as a professional practice in order to broaden the overall scope of discourse.

This journal's online platform allows it to follow an unusual publication schedule. Guest editors select contributors and work with them to address the journal's central theme. Each fall, we publish a beta edition, consisting of two contributor essays and editorial introductions for each of the guest editors. The following winter, two more contributions and revamped introductions are published, completing the publication. This modified schedule allows editors to build curate contributions that build and interact in fun, thought-provoking, and often unexpected ways.

The online-only publication also allows us to continue refining and evolving our structure. This mutability is well suited to a publication run entirely by graduate students-a community that faces a complete renewal every two years. We look forward to seeing and sharing the continued evolution of emerge with our audience.
