Historical Narratives Fall Submissions Drive Deadline

Justin Pottle ’13 writes in about The End of Historical Narratives?, which could be the name of an unreleased essay by Francis Fukuyama. I’m including the entirety of his email because it’s great:

Hey Zach!

Hope your weekend/finals are going well—I’m still kind of reeling from Its a Wonderful Life. Crazy. Its Christmastime. Everything is beautiful. Anyways, I’m writing in with a wesleying request. Can you put a post up advertising the end of Historical Narratives fall submissions? Something like this:

Historical Narratives, Wesleyan’s undergraduate journal of history, is wrapping up its fall submissions drive tomorrow, December 10, but there is still time to submit your academic work discussing or pertaining to historical subjects and analysis. We’re looking for papers between 5 and 30 pages in any subject with an emphasis on original research. If your professor liked it, we probably will too. Successful papers will go through multiple rounds of anonymous review and editing, and the best papers will make it into our sleek academic journal at the end of next semester. You can submit papers whenever, but send submissions to weshistoricalnarratives(at)gmail(dot)com by Monday night to be consider in the first round of review.

I’ve attached a picture of Abraham Lincoln riding a bear. Do with it what you will.

Deadline: Monday (tomorrow) night
Contact: weshistoricalnarratives(at)gmail(dot)com

Narrative Submissions for Take Back The Night

From Brenna Galvin ’11:

We are seeking narratives from those who have experienced sexual assault or been impacted by sexual violence. The content of the narrative is entirely up to the author and will not be edited.

Narratives will be read anonymously on the author’s behalf during the event. The readers will be sensitive and respectful to the author’s experience.

To submit, please send to tbtnsubmissions(at)gmail(dot)com. All submissions will remain confidential and anonymous, but you may send it from a non-Wesleyan email account or submit it to one of our WesBoxes – either WesBox 90203 or 92835 by putting the envelope in the “Campus Mail” slot in Usdan.

Please submit by April 5th.  Thank you.

The actual event of Take Back the Night is April 7th at 7PM starting on the steps of Olin.
