Scope and content
Originally known as the Catholic University of Ireland, at the time of the publication of St. Stephen's University College, Dublin was a constituent college of the Royal University and was under the direction of the Jesuits. St. Stephen's was a product of the educated, increasingly confident, Catholic and almost predominantly male middle class youth in turn of the new century Ireland. It reflects the interests of this cohort and some of the controversies of the day: literature and the Celtic Revival, the Irish Language, education at home and abroad and the position of women. The magazine itself was the subject of controversy when it refused to publish two essays: "The day of the rabblement" by James Joyce and Francis Sheehy-Skeffington's "A forgotten aspect of the University Question". The stated aim of the magazine was to "provide a medium for the discussion of the Irish University Questions, and of all topics of interest to University men and women of Ireland. Suitable articles, paragraphs, and correspondence from whatever quarter will find a welcome in our paper, and not least, contributions written in the Irish tongue. Past Students of the Catholic University are particularly invited to contribute to our pages, as nothing could be more pleasing to the present generation than to hear from their predecessors, who are fairly distributed over the four quarters of the globe". Regular contents included notes from the Schools, particularly the Medical School, as well as reports from the University's clubs and societies such as the Catholic Sodality (religious guild) and the Literary and Historical Society. The magazine also featured news from the female students and schools such as Alexandra College and Loreto College in columns entitled "Girl graduates' chat" and, later, "From the Ladies' Colleges". The contributors made frequent use of pen names. Among those identified are Chanel (Arthur E. Clery), Olla Podrida (Máire Pelly), Beirt Fhear (Séamus Ó Dubhghaill), and Mac Daithi (William Dawson).
