Apocalyptica is an interdisciplinary, international, open-access, double blind peer-reviewed journal published by the Käte Hamburger Centre for Apocalyptic and Post-Apocalyptic Studies at Heidelberg University. 

Our journal, published biannually, explores the many competing sides of apocalyptic thinking in order to investigate the (post-)apocalyptic imaginary and to examine experiences of apocalypse and post-apocalypse as they unsettle the past, present, and future. 

Looking for thought-provoking voices and diverse perspective invested in the end of worlds, Apocalyptica aims to highlight scholarship from a broad range of fields, championing the potential of critical thinking and cultural analysis in the humanities, social, and cultural sciences as a (potentially) transformative force. Our journal aims to actively explore the apocalypse as a figure of thought in order to grapple with the cultural politics of disaster, catastrophe, apocalypse, and the (up)ending of worlds.
