Soapbox is an independent and open-access publishing platform, offering a space for new and critical voices. As the name suggests, Soapbox aims to elevate different voices and promote fresh perspectives on the cultural objects, phenomena, and concepts shaping our world and experiences.

About Soapbox

Soapbox is a publishing platform founded in 2018. It has since promoted scholarly, artistic, and interdisciplinary work that engages provocatively with cultural artefacts, concepts, and contemporary phenomena within the humanities. Soapbox advocates for multiplicity. We encourage the submission of creative, experimental, and boundary-pushing works, as well as more traditional essays that share their differing perspectives on the cultural objects, concepts, and phenomena shaping our worlds. 

Our platform operates both in print, in the form of a peer-reviewed journal, and on the web, where we accept submissions all year-round. The floor is open to students, graduate and early career researchers, as well as writers and creatives from various backgrounds. We aim to open up the route to publication and to share with new audiences the dynamic work of cultural analysis in the Netherlands and beyond.


Founded in 2018, Soapbox is an initiative of Zoë Dankert and Laura Pannekoek. The other founding members were Laura van den Bergh, Noura Borggreven, Calvin Duggan, Aster Hoving, Callum McLean, Isobel Miller and Mick Vierbergen.
