Minerva’s Owl

What It Is

With the DHC motto of sapere aude—dare to be wise—it seems only fitting that Minerva and her owl represent our journal. In Roman mythology, Minerva is the goddess of wisdom, and her pet owl is a symbol not only of wisdom, but of knowledge, culture, and discernment.

Founded in the fall of 2020, Minerva’s Owl is a nonprofit journal publishing the work of current DHC students. Minerva’s Owl primarily publishes submissions that are interdisciplinary. Such works may be academic, creative, or a mix of the two. By posting all content to our external blog and archive, we are able to highlight not only written work but other mixed media.
