About

In Medias Res is a  journal published twice per year (usually in November and March) by St. Thomas More College at the University of Saskatchewan. The title In Medias Res describes the situation of university life in which we are always caught “in the middle of things”. We did not invent this life, but we find ourselves with a responsibility for participating in it and developing it, so that whoever comes after us will not inherit an empty space or a cramped planet.

In Medias Res is a free publication and is distributed around the University of Saskatchewan campus.   In Medias Res has a commitment to publishing local writers and artists.

Editorial Policy

This journal is devoted to understanding the human condition which is to be In medias res, latin, “in the middle of things”. We intend to print a wide range of articles, essays, travelogues, reviews, poetry and fiction which highlight the interests, expertise and manners of thought cultivated in the various disciplines studied at St. Thomas More College and the University of Saskatchewan.

Indeed, the university must, in some sense, have portions of all things in order to be an universitas, a whole which has sufficient diversity and depth to merit its name. Situated as we are between many things, ideas, experiences and events, both at the university and in the wider world we might benefit by recognizing and discussing the possibilities inherent in or constitutive of this reality.

The purpose of this paper is to create a space where the life of learning and the life of everyday can be brought together. Both students and faculty are encouraged to contribute to this publication, and anyone who is interested in becoming a member of the Editorial Board is more than welcome to come out to the meetings—no experience is necessary! inmediasres@stmcollege.ca
