The Refounded "Dominicana"

In 1916 the journal Dominicana was founded at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C. It was operated by the studentate of the Province of St. Joseph until 1968, when it ceased publication. But last Spring the journal was happily resurrected. Here is an account of the events from the Spring 2011 issue:

Spring is a time of change. This spring marks the end of Dominican Review and the re-introduction of Dominicana. Dominicana was the original studentate publication of the the Province of St. Joseph, begun in 1916. It contained news about the Province and articles of interest. It also showcased the literary talents of the studentate. By renaming Dominican Review, we hope to reconnect with our past by drawing inspiration from our tradition and presenting it in a com­pelling way to our readers in 2011. The name of our publication is not the only change you will no­tice. We have moved to a smaller, neater, booklet format to facilitate reading and we have worked to diversify our content.

The Dominicana homepage says a little more about the projected content: 

The re-founded journal seeks to provide commentary on a wide array of topics from a Dominican, contemplative perspective. Entirely student-created, the journal features opinion pieces, spiritual reflections, debates, interviews, short fiction, poetry, and more.

Here is the subscription information, also from the journal’s homepage:

Among recent articles, readers of might be especially interested in J. Augustine Di Noia’s “Theological Method and the Magisterium” from the Winter 2011 issue. I was able to access a pdf file of the article for free on Dominicana’s website. I don’t know whether this was because my institution has a subscription to the journal. But you can try for yourself.
