Noetica: Journal of Global Premodern Studies

Interested in intellectual dialogue and academic exchange? What insights can we draw from the past?


Noetica is a student-founded undergraduate research journal seeking to promote the highest level of erudition. Our motto, Eruditio flumen vivendi, or "Knowledge is the flow of living", reflects our mission to uplift bright thinkers by providing them the opportunity to be recognized for their intellectual endeavors. Noetica encourages submissions of scholarly papers bridging the past and the present as well as creative submissions which offer commentary or nuance to the discourse. We are affiliated with the interdisciplinary Medieval and Renaissance Studies Program at William & Mary. Learn more about how to submit or get involved below.
