New Frequencies

CONSCIOUSNESS cannot spontaneously accept or reject new forms, as offered by creative genius; it is the new form, for however great a period of time it may remain a mere irritant—that moulds consciousness to the necessary amplitude for holding it.

— Mina Loy, “Aphorisms on Futurism” (1914)


New Frequencies are new forms of scholarship created by undergraduates, graduate students, and others, which are unfettered by the conventions of peer-reviewed, academic publishing. These projects invite you to interact with the work of Mina Loy and other avant-garde figures in new, experimental, and playful ways.
