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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
