Call for Papers on Everything (Everywhere, All at Once)

If you’re currently writing, or have already written, an extensive research paper or if you’ve made a creative response project that you feel distinctly proud of, consider making a submission to Process: The Journal of Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Scholarship. The journal’s next issue, titled On Everything, aims to explore how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted different areas of scholarship. To get a comprehensive student perspective, they are encouraging submissions from all undergraduates of all disciplines.

Process is open to formal essay submissions, of course (within the 2500-5000 word length) but they are also accepting multimodal work with an accompanying statement of 500 words. The uniting theme of these submissions is an analysis of how your professional practice and personal life have shifted in the wake of an earth-shaking pandemic. How does your work reflect these tensions, engage with a global cultural shift?

Submissions are open until November 20th. For more information, visit the official website.

The world as we know it (or knew it) is different in its landscape, conditions, and circumstances for many of us. Everything, to some degree, has not only changed, but is also now moving at varying speeds and paces, in multiple facets of life, school, and research.

Process: The Journal of Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Scholarship

As an Honors student, you have likely discussed COVID-19’s impact on research and our global understanding. You’ve probably had to write about it at some point! Having your work featured in a formal journalistic publication is a great opportunity–both for personal affirmation and professional prospects–and can open doors for your future if you choose to pursue graduate school or publishing in your field. Writing is an invaluable skill and this would no doubt be a strong bolster for a resume.

We want to take a moment here to also acknowledge that we at the Honors Blog are open to academic submissions. The Honors Program takes pride in its students and always wants to highlight their scholarship and research. Should you submit a piece to Process, we would love to feature that piece on the blog as well. This goes for any other scholarly work, as well. All submitted works will be published on the Honors Blog to celebrate our students’ scholarship and academic achievement! Email submitted works to honorsprogram@depaul.edu
