UCB Comparative Literature Undergraduate Journal

Submit Your Paper!

Call for Submissions!

The UC Berkeley Comparative Literature Undergraduate Journal is now accepting submissions for our Spring 2015 Issue!  Papers must be submitted by February 15 to be considered for the Spring 2015 publication. 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?

We construe ‘comparative’ broadly to include:
   — interdisciplinary work (Is the paper concerned with more than one medium? Film? Art? Theatre? Dance? Philosophy?)
   — work that deals with more than one author/director/playwright/etc
   — certain ‘readings’ of literature — i.e. Hegelian readings of Frankenstein
   — articles that deal with more than one novel/play/poem/film/etc.

All papers must have been written prior to graduation from an undergraduate degree program.

Submission guidelines:

>> 16 – 60 pages in length (excluding Works Cited). If your paper is below 16 pages, it will not be considered.
>> Must have at least 5 outside sources in Works Cited
>> written by an undergraduate. Recent graduates may submit papers written during their undergraduate career for up to 2 years after the date of graduation.
>> all languages welcome
>> treats literature in some comparative fashion (see above)

Application instructions:

>> Send an electronic version of manuscript (with all identifying information deleted – name, institution, faculty sponsors, etc) in .doc or .docx format to berkeleycluj[at]gmail[dot]com.
>> Put “Spring 2015 Manuscript” in the subject line of your email! In the body of your email, please include a brief abstract as well as your full name, the name of your school, and your expected graduation date (recent grads please note month and year of graduation).

If you have any questions, please contact Elena Bellaart at berkeleycluj@gmail.com

**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.
