brio showcases exemplary and thought-provoking works of interdisciplinary focus, by undergraduate college students across the nation. Our journal combines a variety of genres; we publish academic papers, creative pieces, and artwork with an intertextual, interdisciplinary or translational focus. In line with the philosophy of Comparative Literature, the mission of the journal has always been to feature undergraduate works originating across various departments and disciplines.
brio was founded over twenty years ago and continues to be published entirely by undergraduate students, with the support of New York University’s Comparative Literature Department. brio has published over two-hundred-and-fifty exceptional student writers and visual artists in over ten different languages. We offer undergraduate students the experience of academic publishing and help them communicate ideas to inform, inspire, entertain, and connect them with readers everywhere.
