This month, the first edition of The Anser, Sancta’s own academic journal, was published and launched by the Acting Vice Chancellor of The University of Sydney, Professor Stephen Garton.
The Anser interdisciplinary journal is an annual, peer-reviewed collection of articles, essays and research by students and alumni of Sancta Sophia College, within The University of Sydney.
A Sancta student initiative led by Amelia Anne-Merz (Founder and Outgoing Editor-in-Chief , Graduate House 2014), the inaugural issue features six articles by Undergraduate students and alumni, covering the subject areas of international relations, political science, media and communications, art history, global religious studies, and chemistry.
The publication title, The Anser, is a playful Latin tribute to Sancta’s cherished mascot, The Goose . The Goose can be noticed in the publication’s cover art, designed by Sancta alumna Georgina Kreutzer (Graduate House 2016).
Amelia Anne-Merz established the project whilst working as an Academic Mentor in 2016, recognising the scope it would have to celebrate and strengthen Sancta’s culture of academic excellence and collegiality.
“The Anser gives our students and alumni the opportunity to develop their work into papers worthy of academic publishing; it facilitates connectedness amongst the student and alumni body; and allows contributors to represent Sancta in the international academic community.” ... See MoreSee Less
On 17 September 2018, we officially launched The Anser, Sancta’s interdisciplinary academic journal.
A new legacy adding to our culture of academic excellence and collegiality has begun. The red quill was passed from our Outgoing Editorial Board to our 2019 team.
We thank Professor Stephen Garton, Provost and Deputy Vice-Chancellor / Acting Vice Chancellor of The University of Sydney and other esteemed guests for their support and attendance at this historic event.
