Full Stop Quarterly

For over five years, Full Stop has been producing unique literary criticism that focuses on the overlooked, the strange, and the as-yet unrealized. The Full Stop Quarterly is our newest project, a beautifully designed digital publication that features original essays, interviews, and art. Some pieces featured in previous issues can be found here.

About our latest issue:

In honor of International Worker’s Day, Full Stop presents a special issue on graduate student organizing, a particularly powerful site for understanding and imagining the future of labor organizing in the United States. All of the essays and interviews in this quarterly come out of the experience of organizing to form unions on university campuses. They are reflections on strategy going forward, and also documents of the state of organizing in the university right now.

Featuring essays by:

  • Hailey Huget on the student/worker distinction
  • Rebecca Zweig on redefining labor and academic freedom at the University of Iowa
  • Dennis M. Hogan & Hilary Rasch on organizing graduate workers beyond Trump’s NLRB
  • Colleen Baublitz & Zachary Eldredge on how unions could fight harassment in STEM
  • Emma Borzekowski on organizing undergraduates and expanding the academic Union


  • Zach Schwartz-Weinstein discusses the history of labor in the University

  • Kim Tolley talks about professor in the Gig Economy

Plus images from the graduate student union campaigns and original art by Colleen Tighe.
