This scholarly review of general interest is the oldest academic journal in Canada. It was founded in 1893 by Principal George Grant, a fierce nationalist who wanted to extend Queen's national outreach and bring scholarship to the general public.
According to a Queen's Journal article of that year, it was to be "a medium through which the best thought in Canada can find its way into every home."
Originally a vehicle for articles by Queen's faculty, the Quarterly now carries pieces by a cast of prominent Canadian and international academics and writers, including Michael Ignatieff, Mavis Gallant, Conor Cruise O'Brien, John Polanyi, Jeffery Simpson, Robert Fulford, Umberto Eco, and Mark Kingwell.
It contains articles on politics, literature, science, and he arts, as well as poetry and fiction.
