An Opportunity for Undergraduates to Publish Their Work

I just received this in the mail today.  It looks like a great journal for student papers. –JF

Proto: An Undergraduate Journal is celebrating the publication of its fifth annual issue in 2015. We hope that during this exciting, busy time of year that you might take a moment to encourage your most promising students to submit work to Proto.

 We publish humanities scholarship as well as non-fiction essays from undergraduates attending colleges and universities in the mid-Atlantic region. Recent issues have featured work by students from Georgetown University, Ursinus College, McDaniel University, and the University of Pennsylvania, among others. Students from all majors and all humanities disciplines are welcome to submit work.

Submission guidelines‹as well as a subscription form and sample essays‹may be found at At the website, you may also purchase back issues through, or pre-order your copy of Vol. 5. Please encourage your college or university library to subscribe to Proto.

Our upcoming issue, which is about to go to press, features seven essays, including one on the history of the B & O Railroad and the town of Brunswick, Maryland; an analysis of Progressive Era advertising and the New Woman; and an reassessment of the relationship between organized religion and imperialism.

If you are the chair of your department, please forward this email to your colleagues. If not, please distribute it to anyone who may have students who would like to contribute to the journal‹including your chair.

And do feel free to contact either of us if you have any questions.
