The Brooklyn College Journal of International Affairs (formerly the Political Science Journal) is a unique opportunity for students to publish original work that will bring the study of international affairs to the college community. Centered on a particular theme, the Journal is comprised of articles by graduate and undergraduate students, book reviews, editorials, and other essays. The edition on violence featured exhibits by CUNY-affiliated artists, for example, and the edition on the economic crisis brought in studies from economics and other fields.
Completed and distributed on Graduation Day each May, the Journal begins to form in the previous fall semester. Interested students apply to be on the editorial board, and those chosen register for POL 7940, the Independent Studies Course. The editorial board is then responsible for deciding the edition’s theme, soliciting and editing contributions, writing pieces such as editorials, and supervising the publishing process.
If you would like copies of previous journals, or if you are interested in working on future editions, please contact Prof. Ungar at MUngar@brooklyin.cuny.edu by November 15, describing any relevant publishing or editing experience or career plans.
