“Kairos” is an ancient Greek term meaning “the sublime moment”—a time when opportunity is at hand and must be seized if success is ever to occur.
Kairos established itself in 2012, promising “a review of the most exemplary undergraduate textual output over the span of an academic year”. Nowadays, we prefer the more concise “the best of its kind, whatever the kind”. The inaugural edition, sponsored by the Office of the Provost’s Big iDeas program, included musical compositions, political and scientific critiques, and plays. In 2015, with the support of Dedman College, HRA subsumed Kairos, revitalising it and continuing the legacy. Submissions are collected through mid-March, and 200 print copies are released in May.
