Discentes is the official undergraduate-run Classical Studies Publication at the University of Pennsylvania. Discentes publishes work from within both the Penn community and other academic institutions in the fields of Classical Studies, Ancient History, and Archaeology and is currently accepting submissions for its new online platform. Discentes has always published a variety of work, including research papers, analyses of archaeological excavations and classical works, and original translations of both ancient Greek and Latin texts. To reflect the less conventional nature of an online magazine, the editors are now also seeking other genres of writing that engage with the ancient world. In particular, we encourage interdisciplinary or reflective pieces, multimedia projects, and work that otherwise goes beyond the scope of a traditional research journal.
