Welcome to Hyperrhiz, the peer-reviewed online journal specializing in electronic literature, new media criticism and net art.

Hyperrhiz, originally developed as a sister publication of Rhizomes: Cultural Studies in Emerging Knowledge, is an open access journal produced twice-yearly. We also collaborate with Punctum Books on a monograph series, Hyperrhiz Electric. We welcome submissions of electronic literature, new media scholarship and criticism, and reviews of media-related books, exhibitions or blogs. For submission criteria, please read our latest call for papers and our guidelines for submissions.
