Aletheia Logo


Aletheia is a peer-reviewed Arts & Science journal. The name (pronounced a-lee-thea) is an ancient Greek term for “truth” and “disclosure.” The journal serves as a way to reveal unique ideas and perspectives, and showcase the amazing research and writing talents of Artscis. The journal provides a great opportunity for our incoming first years to get a sense of upper-year courses and research interests, and allow students in all years to gain valuable editing or publication experience. The goal is to foster more inter-year collaboration during a time when we cannot be physically together, and continue for years to come.


The Melange Logo

The Melange

The Melange is an Arts & Science student-run magazine that highlights the written and visual talent within the Program and provides a platform for portraying and appreciating the Artsci experience. In keeping with the interdisciplinary spirit of the Program, the emphasis in The Melange is on variety. The goal is to make the magazine feel accessible, lively, and capable of including everything from lighthearted satire, to interviews with professors, to poetry and short fiction. This is a fun, versatile publication that is new and interesting every time.
