Submit your work on South Asia to the Columbia Undergraduate Journal of South Asian Studies
Call for Papers Date:
The Columbia Undergraduate Journal of South Asian Studies (CUJSAS) is currently accepting submissions for Volume II, Issue II.
The Columbia Undergraduate Journal of South Asian Studies (CUJSAS) is a web-only academic journal based out of Columbia University. The journal is a space for undergraduates all over the world to publish their original research on South Asia (Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka) from both the social sciences and humanities. The journal has been created by undergraduates for undergraduates, and so the selection process is administered by an editorial board comprised of Columbia students.
We accept theses, research papers, seminar papers, and essays relating to the study of South Asia from both the humanities and social sciences. There is no ideal page range, though generally submissions between 15 and 40 pages are preferred. Recent graduates are encouraged to apply, as long as they attained their undergraduate degree no earlier than Spring 2010. More information can be found at:http://www.columbia.edu/cu/cujsas/submissions.html. Submissions are due on March 18 before midnight.
2. Book Reviews
For the first time, we will be publishing book reviews both online and in the Spring issue of the Journal. Reviews should deal critically with a work (non-fiction or fiction) that was published within the last year and deals with South Asia in some capacity; it should be 600-750 words. If you would like to write a review, email email@example.com by March 18 with the details of the book you hope to review. For ideas, see the Columbia University Press website: http://cup.columbia.edu/subject/58/114
3. Notes from the Field
For the first time, we will be publishing a section of original journalistic research. If you have been “in the field” (i.e., working within South Asia or with diasporic communities) and would like to publish your research in the next issue, send your work with “Notes From the Field” in the title to firstname.lastname@example.org om by March 18. These submissions should be under 15 pages.
