publications & productions

As a transdisciplinary forum for discourse, The Turnip Truck(s) is an evolving graphic landscape for essayists, poets, artists, cultural theorists, critics and commentators who are interested in the dialectics of the human and its environment(s). Online features address these dialectics more generally than those published in our biannual print journal, which explores a specific theme in each new issue.

As the world teeters on the brink of granting apes personhood, folklorists, a talking chimpanzee, and a former-monkey-mind-doctor convene to finally resolve the ancient question: what’s the difference between humans and animals? No simple answers await them.
