Ceræ is a peer-reviewed Australasian journal of medieval and early modern studies. Administered from the University of Western Australia with the generous support of faculty and staff, the journal is directed by a committee of interstate and international graduate students and early career researchers. We are united in our commitment to open-access publishing, the possibilities of the digital humanities, and to forging a strong community of medieval and early modern scholars in the region.
The word ‘ceræ’ refers to the wax tablets used throughout antiquity and the medieval period as a reusable writing surface. Like the wax tablet, online publishing is a flexible medium which can be overwritten and re-inscribed—it has a malleability that traditional print forums do not. Our sources range from tablets and scrolls to manuscript codices, printed pamphlets, archaeological finds and architectural features—and our research outputs likewise can take any form from traditional text to audio-visual recordings, images, and interactive projects in the digital humanities.
We gladly accept manuscripts from any discipline related to medieval and early modern studies (including medievalism in later culture) and will accommodate the needs of authors in including audio-visual material and unusual or innovative formatting requirements.
