Writers Wanted! Journal of International Affairs

Each year our program publishes the Journal of International Affairs, focusing on a current issue in global politics.  This is an opportunity to get your work in print and contribute to scholarly dialogue.  This year’s theme is Borders and Nationalism – any article connected to those issues is encouraged.  We also invite articles about your own activism, experience, and studies in the past year.

Please see flyer for information about submissions: JIA Flyer 2017-18
