CFP Journal: Verges: Germanic & Slavic Studies in Review

Deadline: December 16, 2012

Verges: Germanic & Slavic Studies in Review is accepting submissions for Volume 2, Issue 1. Verges is an online, open-access journal published by the graduate students of the Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies at the University of Victoria. Although Verges primarily encourages submissions from graduate students, outstanding papers from upper-level undergraduate students are welcomed as well. For this issue, we particularly encourage MA students and upper-level undergraduate students to submit.

We accept articles between 3,600 and 6,000 words long. We also accept interviews between 1,500 and 3,500 words long. All articles and interviews must include a 100-150 word abstract, a brief author bio and keywords for indexing purposes. As articles will be blind peer-reviewed, please ensure that you follow the guidelines for a blind review. Also, undergraduate students are required to mention (during the submission process) that a professor has vetted the article and supports the article to be of publishable quality in a scholarly journal.

Because this issue is also featuring conference proceedings from Walking the Wire: the 3rd annual Germanic and Slavic Studies graduate student symposium, the broad theme for this issue is 'Central & Eastern European Cultural Contemplations from the 19th Century to the 21st'. Articles on all aspects related to Germanic and/or Slavic Studies between the nineteenth century and the present are welcomed. We invite a various range of topics in German and/or Slavic literatures, languages, linguistics, history, music, translation studies and so forth.

To submit your article, please visit the journal's website (below), create an account as 'author' and follow the submission steps. The deadline for submissions is December 16, 2012. Please visit the journal's website for more information: http://journals.uvic.ca/index.php/verges or contact the journal editors at gsreview@uvic.ca.
