The World Press Review, published in New York City by the Stanley Foundation, is a nonprofit educational service that fosters the international exchange of information. We have just begun to build up our website which can be found at www.worldpress.org
We are currently seeking submissions from professors and graduate students for a special web survey of "The State of the University Worldwide". We are looking for personal, reflective essays of approximately 1500-2000 words written by non-Americans that examine issues facing universities and university life/culture outside the United States. Topics may include (but are not limited to): academic freedom, the role of the university in society, labor issues and the university, censorship and dissent, women and the university professoriat, ethnic minorities and university life. We would also be happy to consider essays written by non-Americans about American university life. Some topics: the role of political correctness in American college life as compared to abroad, perceptions of affirmative action, tenure processes, etc. We would be especially interested in receiving essays from academics in the following countries: former Yugoslavian states, Ethiopia, Peru, former Soviet Union, Syria, Lebanon. Advanced graduate students and non-tenured professors are ESPECIALLY encouraged to submit proposals.
Please email paper proposals to Jonathan Eric Lewis at the email address, below.
