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. It is the oldest graduate student-oriented journal in Australia.  

We publish a mixture of short fiction, poetry, nonfiction and creative nonfiction, academic essays, reviews, graphic narratives and artwork focused around a central theme each year.

While Antithesis is run by graduate students for graduate students, there is a long tradition of publishing works by established scholars, writers and artists from around the world.

Along with many others, the journal has published works by Joanna Bourke, Christos Tsiolkas, Terry Eagleton, Gore Vidal, Stephen Fry, Delia Falconer, Chris Wallace-Crabbe, Ghassan Hage and Slavoj Zizek.
