Antithesis is a refereed arts and humanities journal edited by graduate students and published annually in association with the School of Culture and Communication at the University of Melbourne. Now in its twenty-sixth year, Antithesis is the oldest graduate student-oriented journal in Australia.

We publish a mixture of scholarly essays, poetry, short fiction, creative non-fiction, as well as artwork, illustration, photography, reviews and interviews. While Antithesis is run by graduate students for graduate students, we have a long tradition of publishing works by established scholars, writers and artists from around the world. Along with many others, we’ve published works by Joanna Bourke, Tony Birch, Christos Tsiolkas, Terry Eagleton, Gore Vidal, Stephen Fry, Delia Falconer, Chris Wallace-Crabbe, Ghassan Hage, Shaun Tan and Slavoj Zizek.
