Call for Submissions!
The UC Berkeley Undergraduate Journal is now accepting submissions for our Spring 2014 issue until January 31! Submissions will be evaluated on a rolling basis. We are looking for scholarly articles that discuss any subject within the wide scope of the field of Comparative Literature, from international literary trends to literary comparisons between two specific cultures to theoretical literary discourse. What counts as comparative literature?
The deadline for submissions for the Spring 2014 issue is January 31st. At the time your submission was written, you cannot have graduated from your undergraduate education or obtained a B.A. For international students, we request that authors have written the piece before they begin their fifth year of study at university. Additional information for non-US students is at the bottom of the page.

**Information for International Students**
We realize that some universities do not have B.A. programs or have programs in which students go straight from high school to a six-year program. That’s no problem! If you are coming from one of these universities, our only requirement is that you not have completed your fourth year of that program at the time of your submission.
Though we are primarily an English language journal, we expect to publish several foreign language submissions in each issue, so feel free to send us theses or long articles in their original language.
