Call for Proposals! 2016-2017

Re:Search, the Undergraduate Literary Criticism Journal at the University of Illinois, is seeking submissions for its Spring 2017 publication!

Read our full Call for Proposals here.

Students currently enrolled as undergraduates at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign from any discipline or major may submit to Re:Search as long as the submissions are in accordance with our vision of the journal as a site of critical analysis. We encourage students to submit literary, media, or cultural criticism. We accept revisions of papers written previously for a class, current or completed honors theses, and even projects conceived outside the classroom.

Students who wish to be published in Re:Search will need to submit a 3-5 page proposal by 11:59 p.m. on Monday, November 7th, 2016.

DO NOT EMAIL US YOUR PROPOSALS! Please submit them through the Online Journal System (OJS). We will post instructions on how to navigate this system before the end of October, but we will also host a workshop to get as many interested authors set up in the system as possible.

Keep an eye out for our upcoming proposal workshops, which we will hold in October! Please email with any questions about submitting to the journal or other opportunities for involvement.

Please check out the sample proposals included under the “Resources” tab for examples of what your proposal should resemble!
