  • Call for Papers: HCRGSA Societies in Crisis, Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference 202

    Posted: November 10, 2022

    (View as individual posting)

    The History, Classics, and Religion Graduate Students’ Association (HCRGSA) of the University of Alberta invites graduate students to submit papers on the topic “Societies in Crisis: Reactions, Resilience, and Resolution.” The conference will take place March 2-4, 2023, in Edmonton, Alberta. We will have a virtual option, but we encourage everyone who is able to attend in person to do so. We are excited to offer travel awards (up to $250) and a best abstract award of $100 (All award money will be given in person at the conference).

    Different crises have been at the forefront of every newspaper and every social media post. Over the past generation, we have witnessed the collapse of the Soviet Union, September 11, 2001, the Financial Crisis of 2007-2008, the Covid-19 pandemic, and the Russian invasion of Ukraine. We have seen societies alter, but we have also seen societies persevere. The topic of crisis has been and will continue to be an essential research subject. In this context, we invite applicants to discuss societies in crisis related to their respective fields of study; Why do societies face crises? What crisis defined a region for generations? How did an area recover from a disaster? What can communities do to help a country in crisis? What is the role of religion in societies during
    periods of upheaval? What is the role of government and political leaders in periods of unrest? How have individual people or communities dealt with or responded to social tumult?

    As a multidisciplinary department, we are committed to a dialogue between diverse disciplinary perspectives and methodologies. We strongly encourage all related fields to apply, including but not limited to: History, Classics, Religious Studies, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy,
    Anthropology, English, Political Science, Philosophy, Indigenous Studies, Economics, Cultural Studies, and Gender Studies.

    Presentations should be no longer than 15 minutes to allow for a question period afterward.

    Please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words and a short biography by December 15th; notifications will be sent out by the end of January.

  • CfA: Political Concepts Graduate Conference

    (View as individual posting)

    CfA: Political Concepts Graduate Conference 

    New School for Social Research, March 24-25, 2023

    Political Concepts: A Critical Lexicon began as a multidisciplinary, web-based journal in which an assemblage of contributions focused on a single concept with the express intention of re-situating its meaning in the field of political discourse. By reflecting on what has remained unquestioned or unthought in that concept, this all-around collection of essays seeks to open pathways for another future—one that is not already determined and ill-fated. 

    From this forum for engaged scholarship, a succession of academic conferences have sprung as a space for conversation and constructive debate, including last year’s Political Concepts Graduate Conference. Organized by students of the Departments of Anthropology, Philosophy, and Politics at the New School for Social Research, Political Concepts invites graduate students from all fields of study to participate in our upcoming graduate student conference in Spring 2023. Held at NSSR over March 24-5, the conference will serve as a workshop of ideas on the multiplicity of powers, structures, problems, and orientations that shape our collective life.

    Because Political Concepts does not predetermine what does or does not count as political, the conference welcomes essays that fashion new political concepts or demonstrate how concepts deserve to be taken as politically significant. Papers should be dedicated to a single political concept, like an encyclopedia entry, but the analysis of the concept does not have to abide to traditional approaches. Some of the concepts contended with in last year’s vibrant conference included abolition, survival, statistics, solitude, resentment, statistics, dependence, imaginary, and solidarity. Other examples can be found in the published papers on the Political Concepts website.

    The conference will take the format of a series of panels across two days. Panels will contain two presenters whose papers are thematically and theoretically related — creating a space for critical engagement between the authors, as well as with other attendees. Each presenter will have 25 minutes to present their paper, along with 40 minutes for discussion at the end. This year, there will be a faculty roundtable with NSSR professors serving on the Political Concepts editorial board, namely, Ann Laura Stoler, Jay M. Bernstein, and Andreas Kalyvas.

    Abstracts should be no longer than 750 words in a pdf format, and prepared for blind review, so please ensure that your abstract is free from any identifying personal details. Abstracts must be submitted through this google form by December 15, 2022 EST. Any inquiries can be sent to politicalconceptsNSSR@gmail.com

    Applicants must be advanced graduate students and their concept must be a central part of a longer-term project in order to be accepted. Results will be informed in January.

    Process: Journal of Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Scholarship invites general submissions on any topic for Issue 7.1. For this themeless issue, we seek thought-provoking, critical work from a range of disciplines and perspectives.

    As we approach a post-COVID reality, we are curious to hear from undergraduate scholars about how their worlds (broadly conceived) have changed and/or are changing. The world as we know it (or knew it) is different in its landscape, conditions, and circumstances for many of us. Everything, to some degree, has not only changed, but is also now moving at varying speeds and paces, in multiple facets of life, school, and research. For our On Everything issue, we seek approaches to our themeless topic that deal with everything, everywhere, all at once, as you interpret it. We are particularly curious about scholarship that you have produced that is related your field, to your interests, and/or to areas adjacent to your work that you’ve found in our post-COVID world; however, we are also open to general submissions.

    We accept two general types of submissions: critical essays and non-traditional (or multimodal) compositions, such as poems, short stories, or digital artifacts. All traditional essay submissions should be 2500–5000 words and follow the appropriate disciplinary guidelines with respect to style and citations. Please include a 250-word abstract outlining the project’s goals and how the contribution meaningfully engages ongoing scholarly conversations. For non-traditional submissions, please expand the abstract to 500 words that detail the project goals and articulate how the work meaningfully adds to ongoing critical conversations. Questions may be directed to the editorial board at processj@uw.edu.

    Amherst College Undergraduate Law Review Mission Statement

    The Amherst College Law Review (ACLR) was born out of the desire to foster undergraduate scholarship in the liberal arts. Among our peers, the ACLR stands alone for its interdisciplinary approach to the study of law.

    Given the ever-changing nature of our society, students of law encounter a host of new, troubling, and intriguing questions including, but not limited to, increasing inequality, salience of technology, and neoliberal globalization. These questions cannot be fully posed, much less answered, within the scope of conventional legal training and/or the traditional social sciences.
    The mission of the ACLR is to pose these questions and to strive to answer them with the nuance, clarity, probity, and rigor provided by the liberal arts tradition. This journal brings the best scholarship of the contemporary humanities to bear on the most difficult and urgent juridical problems of our time.

    The Duke Undergraduate Historical Review, a journal that publishes original undergraduate research papers in the humanities are currently seeking submissions for their Fall 2022 issue. They will be accepting paper submissions on a rolling basis until Friday, October 21, 2022, at 11:59pm (EST). 

    In order to be considered for publication, all paper submissions should adhere to the following criteria:

    • Papers can be on any topic that relates to history.
    • Papers must have been written for an undergraduate class. The author must be an undergraduate student or must have graduated no earlier than the spring of 2022. 
    • Submissions must be at least ten pages long (double-spaced and 12-point Times New Roman font). This does not include the works cited. 
    • A complete “works cited” section following the Chicago Manual of Style should appear at the end of each submission. Footnotes should appear in the same style throughout the paper. 
    • Limit of one paper submission per student.

    Submissions that have been published or are currently being edited for publication in other journals will not be accepted.

Papers selected for publication will be edited, and authors will be required to work closely with their editing team throughout the review process. Although paper submissions need not have been written for a History class, the content should be relevant to the discipline, and the work should generally employ methods of historical research.

  • Process Journal Call for Papers: On Everything

    Posted: November 2, 2022

    (View as individual posting)

    DEADLINE: November 20, 2022

    Process: Journal of Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Scholarship invites general submissions on any topic for Issue 7.1. For this themeless issue, we seek thought-provoking, critical work from a range of disciplines and perspectives.

    As we approach a post-COVID reality, we are curious to hear from undergraduate scholars about how their worlds (broadly conceived) have changed and/or are changing. The world as we know it (or knew it) is different in its landscape, conditions, and circumstances for many of us. Everything, to some degree, has not only changed, but is also now moving at varying speeds and paces, in multiple facets of life, school, and research. For our On Everything issue, we seek approaches to our themeless topic that deal with everything, everywhere, all at once, as you interpret it. We are particularly curious about scholarship that you have produced that is related your field, to your interests, and/or to areas adjacent to your work that you’ve found in our post-COVID world; however, we are also open to general submissions.

    We accept two general types of submissions: critical essays and non-traditional (or multimodal) compositions, such as poems, short stories, or digital artifacts. All traditional essay submissions should be 2500–5000 words and follow the appropriate disciplinary guidelines with respect to style and citations. Please include a 250-word abstract outlining the project’s goals and how the contribution meaningfully engages ongoing scholarly conversations. For non-traditional submissions, please expand the abstract to 500 words that detail the project goals and articulate how the work meaningfully adds to ongoing critical conversations. Questions may be directed to the editorial board at processj@uw.edu.

    OUR MISSION: Process: Journal of Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Scholarship provides a space for undergraduate writers to share their work outside of the context and constraints of the college classroom.

    Amherst College Undergraduate Law Review Mission Statement

    The Amherst College Law Review (ACLR) was born out of the desire to foster undergraduate scholarship in the liberal arts. Among our peers, the ACLR stands alone for its interdisciplinary approach to the study of law.

    Given the ever-changing nature of our society, students of law encounter a host of new, troubling, and intriguing questions including, but not limited to, increasing inequality, salience of technology, and neoliberal globalization. These questions cannot be fully posed, much less answered, within the scope of conventional legal training and/or the traditional social sciences.
    The mission of the ACLR is to pose these questions and to strive to answer them with the nuance, clarity, probity, and rigor provided by the liberal arts tradition. This journal brings the best scholarship of the contemporary humanities to bear on the most difficult and urgent juridical problems of our time.
