What It Is
With the motto of the DHC being saupere 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.
DHC student Aletha Kleis presents her research on the health sustainability of diets without meat.
How It Works
Submissions to Minerva’s Owl can be entered here on this site! All work goes to an editing committee which assesses the entry for placement in an issue. Work will be led through expansion and alteration until the piece is a good fit for the journal
We also appreciate recommendations of others' work; if you feel a piece you've recently encountered from a DHC peer belongs in our publication, let us know and we will reach out to that individual directly.
We will be accepting student work for this first issue until the last day of Winter Quarter, 2021: Friday, March 19. Our current theme is 'Community.' If you have questions or concerns, email Matthew.Martinson@cwu.edu.
