If you are interested in submitting, but are not an English Major…

Have no fear! You can still submit to Re:Search. While our past submissions have predominantly focused on literary/film/etc. analysis, part of our vision for the future of the journal includes expanding our scope to represent more of the undergraduate research being conducted by students in other departments within the humanities or social sciences. This includes topics related to cultural studies/cultural criticism, analyses rooted in historicism, biography, or artistic or social movements, and so forth. While, of course, we would love to try and find a way to incorporate textual analysis or arts-related content into your research question, it is not necessarily a requirement for publication in the journal. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email us at uiuclitjournal@gmail.com.
