The Mind's Eye

A Liberal Art's Journal

The Mind's Eye, a journal of scholarly and creative work, has been published  by Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts since 1997. While emphasizing articles of scholarly merit, The Mind's Eye focuses on a general communication of ideas of interest to a liberal arts college. The Mind's Eye was also published between January 1977 and Spring 1989 by North Adams State College, which was renamed Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts in 1997. Funding in support of the preservation of and access to The Mind's Eye, which is now available at the Internet Archive through the links below, was provided in part by the Hardman Library Grant.
