Published since 1961, MHJ is a refereed journal for the publication of Australian and Aotearoa New Zealand graduate work in history. It is open to new approaches and aims to present original graduate work to a wide and responsive readership.

The Amphora Issue is dedicated to ancient world studies and is a new departure for MHJ. It marks the expansion of MHJ into a journal with two annual publications. The theme of this issue is ’Narrativization’. Articles include:

  • Dr. Jennifer Webb, ‘Extreme Story-Telling: Constructing Someone Else’s Archaeological Site’
  • Dr. Maxine Lewis, ’Narrativising Catullus’
  • Aidan Nathan ’The Literary Function of Euthyphro’
  • Joan Stivala, ’Surviving Poison Hemlock’
  • Kyle Conrau-Lewis, ‘ Family Trees in the Thebaid: The Missing Links’

All revenue from sales funds the publication costs of future issues. Enquiries can be directed to the Amphora Issue Collective (
