Anamesa is a peer ­reviewed, interdisciplinary journal of graduate student writing and art based at New York University. Tracing its conceptual origin to Platonic philosophy, Anamesa stands for the “in between,” and sets as its purpose to blur boundaries, re­imagine links, and explore the interstices of academia. Anamesa considers material from a variety of subject matters and selects creative, timely, and intelligent works that reflect the interdisciplinary nature of the global graduate community.
