The UC Undergraduate Journal of Slavic and East/Central European Studies

Deadline: October 31, 2011

Every spring for the past fourteen years the UCLA campus has been host to the University of California Undergraduate Research Conference on Slavic and East/Central European Studies. A few years ago, faculty members involved with the conference started an online journal to publish the conference proceedings, The UC Undergraduate Journal of Slavic and East/Central European Studies: http://www.international.ucla.edu/languages/slavicjournal/.

For our fifth issue, we have decided to accept submissions from undergraduates who may not have participated in the conference but who are working on interesting projects in any area (literature, linguistics, history, politics, etc.) of Slavic and East/Central European Studies (Russia, Hungary, Czech Republic, Poland, former Yugoslavia, Lithuania, etc.). Comparative topics are also welcome.

All submissions will undergo a peer-review process, and the authors of papers that are accepted will work on revisions with the journal’s editor(s) to ready the submission for publication. We strongly encourage all students to work with their academic advisors before submitting their papers for review.

Submissions should be in Word format, between seven to ten pages double-spaced, and include notes and bibliography. The deadline for submissions is 31 October 2011, so that the issue can go online in Spring 2012.

Please contact Yelena Furman (yfurman@humnet.ucla.edu) with any questions.
