Aisthesis: The Stanford Undergraduate Journal of Classical Studies is seeking submissions from undergraduate authors at any university for the publication of its third volume in Spring 2014. Papers are peer-reviewed by a staff of Stanford undergraduates, and the journal is published in both print and online formats. We distribute the journal at Stanford and send it to other major universities to revitalize interest in and spread knowledge of classical subjects and values.


The deadline for submissions for the Spring 2014 edition is Jan. 13, 2014. [EXTENDED DEADLINE: January 20th]  We accept critical essays in a classical context within fields including Linguistics, Philosophy, Literature, History, Drama, Art, and Archaeology. We also accept translations of Greek and Latin.

Submissions are entered using EasyChair, an online article management system, at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aisth2014. Click the sign-up link on the webpage to register for a free EasyChair account and then follow the instructions given to upload your submission on the “AISTH 2014” site.

To facilitate blind review, please remove all identifying information from the document that you upload. Essays may be formatted in .pdf, .doc, or .docx. Please include a 200-word abstract both in the paper itself and in the abstract text box within the online system.

The maximum suggested word count is 10,000 words or about 30 double-spaced pages, excluding notes and bibliography, although longer papers may be accepted if the additional length is justified by the content matter. The paper is to be formatted in Chicago style, but submissions prepared using other standard bibliographical formats will still be reviewed on the condition that the author must be willing to reformat the paper in Chicago style if it is accepted for publication.

Two submissions are allowed per author. Authors must be current undergraduates or have graduated within one year of the time of the submission deadline, and they must not be enrolled in a graduate program at the time of publication. Papers received after the deadline may be deferred to the subsequent issue.

If you have further questions about the journal, please contact the editors at aisthesis.stanford@gmail.com.
