Critical Inquiry is a peer-reviewed academic journal in the humanities published by the University of Chicago Press. While the topics and historical periods it covers are diverse, the journal is known as a long-standing, highly regarded critical theory driven venue for interpretive scholarship, especially but not exclusively in literature and textual criticism. It was established in 1974 by Wayne Booth, Arthur Heiserman, and Sheldon Sacks. From 1978 to 2020, the journal was edited by W. J. T. Mitchell. From June 2020 it will be co-edited by Bill Brown (critical theory) and Frances Ferguson.
