About the Journal
The Sunoikisis Undergraduate Research Journal (ISSN 2373-5937) is a peer-reviewed online journal with a variety of features intended to make research attractive and accessible to a broad spectrum of readers, from scholars to curious young people.
Contributions representing a variety of classical topics and conventions have been made available along with tools that an online audience can use to engage with and respond to the ideas presented. These contributions form the starting point for a broad range of conversations, dialogues, with the online community.
Because the articles begin and evolve in a digital medium, they incorporate a wide variety of materials in different media, including images, videos, podcasts, links to other online resources, interactive features, and other types of data. We encourage the inclusion of multimedia content, and welcome the opportunity to move beyond the limitations of a traditional print publication. Multimedia content, coupled with online interaction, provides an opportunity for much more than a conversation.
The e-journal will serve as a medium of scholarly publication. All comments and annotations will go through an editorial process before they appear as contributions to discourses.
The current, evolving issue (Volume 2, Issue 1) contains the work of seven undergraduates who presented papers at the Sunoikisis Undergraduate Research Symposium (SURS) at the Center for Hellenic Studies in the fall of 2013. On December 7, 2013, the undergraduates presented their research to an audience of faculty, students, fellows, and senior fellows at the Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington, DC. This issue includes video from the Fall symposium.
We will post papers approximately every two weeks until the end of July. To receive notice as soon as a paper is posted, please subscribe to this E-journal via email in the right sidebar.
