Sophia is the University of Victoria's undergraduate journal of philosophy.
ARTiculate is a peer-reviewed graduate student journal of art history published by the University of Victoria. The publication aims to further the establishment of a graduate art historical community by offering graduate students the ability to disseminate their knowledge and engage in an editorial process that is shaped by the insights of peers well-versed in their chosen area of study. In keeping with the inclusive conception of art that is embraced within a global art history, ARTiculate does not privilege a singular culture or medium in its selection of manuscripts. Rather, the publication serves to circulate highly original submissions that are valued for their contributions to the preexisting scholarly conversation.
