Vocation and the Student

One of the clearest and most incisive indictments of careerism (though he never uses that specific term), was made by W.H. Auden in a speech, “Vocation and Society” to undergraduates at Swarthmore.

Why We Publish

We, the students of the Augustine Collective, publish journals of Christian thought because we believe the Christian Gospel encompasses the whole of life itself; that the brokenness of this world is mirrored in the brokenness of God on the cross; and that the answer to our brokenness is found only in the Resurrection. So we endeavor to think rigorously, question honestly, and invite all to join us in the pursuit of truth and human flourishing.

Attend Our Conference

Each January, students and alumni from across the network gather in Boston for a weekend of equipping, intellectual exchange, and friendship. At the 2019 conference, over 220 students were in attendance. Past keynote speakers have included Andy Crouch, Meghan Sullivan, Michael Lindsay, John Lennox, and James K.A. Smith. If you’re running a Christian journal or interested in starting one, we’d love for you to join us for our first-ever virtual conference in February at #AC2021!

As a student-led movement, we know what it’s like to start from scratch. Get in touch and we’ll walk you through the nuts and bolts and introduce you to the thinkers and writers who inspire us.
