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.
Volume 5 of the Sunoikisis Undergraduate Research Journal, available August 1, 2017, contains the work of seven college students who participated in the Sunoikisis Undergraduate Research Symposium (SURS) at the Center for Hellenic Studies on March 11, 2017.
During SURS, the participants shared their research on Hellenistic literature or Roman Imperial literature, topics which correspond to the fall 2016 Greek and Latin courses offered by Sunoikisis. They had the opportunity to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of their work in progress, develop ideas, collect bibliographical suggestions, and gain perspectives from their peers and faculty representing a range of institutions.
The students’ papers appear in Volume 5 of the Sunoikisis Undergraduate Research Journal.
