About Antithesis

Antithesis is Australia’s long-running graduate journal of contemporary theory, criticism and culture. Established in 1987, Antithesis is a refereed arts and humanities journal edited by graduate students and published annually in association with the School of Culture and Communication at The University of Melbourne. The journal publishes a range of works that consider and interrogate contemporary thinking and culture, ranging from philosophical treatises to avant-garde works of poetry and fiction. Each year the print edition showcases a mixture of short fiction, poetry, nonfiction, academic articles, reviews, graphic narratives and artwork focused around a central theme. The journal is committed to promoting new works that fall between the cracks of traditional genres.
