Call for Papers: Undergraduate Journal of Social Studies

From Alexander Furnas ’11:

The Undergraduate Journal of Social Studies (UJSS) is calling for papers for its inaugural issue.

Have a seminar paper you really liked?  How about a senior essay or portion of your thesis that you would like to share? Did you do an independent research project while studying abroad? Submit them to the newly launched UJSS, a peer-reviewed student run academic journal run by students in the College of Social Studies.
UJSS accepts submissions from 1,500 to 10,000 words on issues relating to social, political, historical, or economic issues.  The journal is intended to be broadly interdisciplinary, so papers from diverse disciplinary, theoretical or methodological perspectives are encouraged. The submission deadline is March 28th. For more information see the Aims and Scope as well as the Policies page of the Journal website.
