The Undergraduate Journal of Contemporary Issues and Media
We have a new undergraduate journal that publishes undergraduate work to a wide audience. The journal is entitled the Undergraduate Journal of Contemporary Issues and Media and is student run through our Technical Editing course, which I teach in the Department of Writing and Rhetoric Studies at the University of Utah. Each year on November 30th we go live with a digital edition of multimedia pieces that address various issues that impact those between the ages of 18-24. The journal will be housed in WorldCat through our library and will be accessible to over 70,000 libraries in some 170 countries.
I have attached a partial (and still in progress draft) of our 2018 volume so you can get a better sense of it. Other pieces include a piece on animal/human relations (Stanford student), a policy brief on Asian mental health in California (UC-Davis student), and an open mic on liminal spaces of identity (Colgate student). We welcome various genres, including those taught in a variety of courses.
The Department of Writing & Rhetoric Studies is proud to showcase The Undergraduate Journal of Contemporary Issues and Media. To view the Journal check out the links below.
Also, if you check that last pages, you will see a call for proposals for the next edition. The deadline is coming up on January 15th, 2019.
