Inventio, the undergraduate research journal of the Catholic University of America, is calling for submissions! All essays to be considered for the Spring 2021 volume are due on May 15, 2020. Publishing in Inventio provides students with an excellent opportunity to hone their writing with the help of copy editors and showcase their research. Original research in the fields of theology, philosophy, the humanities, the fine arts, and the social sciences will be considered for publication. Essays must be submitted anonymously, use Chicago Style citations, and include an abstract. The submission form and further guidelines are available online.

Catholic University students are also invited to apply for a position on the 2020-21 Inventio Student Editorial Board (SEB).
