In 2018, LURe has expanded immensely thanks to a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. This grant has even allowed us to bring on a Plenary Speaker for the UWG English & Philosophy Undergraduate Research Conference on October 11, 2018—a first in the conference’s history!
Dr. Heidi Bollinger, an assistant professor and Deputy Chair of the English department at Hostos Community College, will be opening the conference at 10:45am with a talk about loss and grief in contemporary graphic novels as well as a broader discussion on research. Everyone is encouraged to attend!
The conference will run from 10:30am to 6:00pm in the University of West Georgia’s Campus Center’s ballrooms. Light refreshments, lunch, and snacks will be available throughout the day. The conference program will be released soon.
Attention University of West Georgia students! Our Conference Call for Papers is officially open!
If you wrote a research paper for English or Philosophy that you’re proud of, consider presenting it on a panel of your peers during our conference on October 11, 2018 at the University of West Georgia!
Deadline for submission is September 20th.
E-mail Dr. Leah Haught at firstname.lastname@example.org to submit.
On August 21st and August 22nd, LURe joined over sixty other organizations at the Student Organization Fair to spread awareness about the journal to University of West Georgia students. This event is significant for students looking to get involved on campus, allowing them to meet various organizations and see their options before the fall semester gets underway. Similarly, the event allowed LURe to meet new students face-to-face, let them know about us, and answer any questions they might have.
Each student who stopped by the LURe table was informed about our student-run journal, our submissions, our Undergraduate Research Conference, and the opportunity to become an integral part of the journal’s production as a staff editor. We encouraged these students to take home our informational flyers and pieces of candy, and in return, we received their e-mails to send additional information and reminders about applying for positions.
We wish to thank any student who stopped by our table and inquired about our organization! You made our first Student Organization Fair a huge success!
LURe would like to thank everyone who participated in the LURe Used Book Sale this week, including the UWG chapter of Sigma Tau Delta and members of the LURe staff, who helped set up and run the table, as well as everyone who donated and bought books for the cause!
As you can see from the photos, the Used Book Sale was a great success, with much involvement from the students and faculty/staff at the University of West Georgia.
It is because of you that LURe was able to raise money towards our NEH grant, which will match all of the profits we are able to raise before April 30th.
Once again, thank you for supporting LURe and the humanities!
LURe Journal has been preparing a few fundraisers recently. Every donation and contribution is going towards LURe’s expansion moving forward. Here’s how:
Because the NEH grant is a challenge grant, this means they will match the amount we manage to raise over the next two years (up to $25,000 per year), effectively doubling the contributions you’re adding to! The more you contribute, the more the NEH contributes—a win/win!
With your help, LURe will accomplish so much more!
LURe Journal‘s paper submissions are officially open! We accept scholarly, researched undergraduate essays on all topics and historical periods of literature, film, critical theory, or cultural studies.
Please review the submission policies before submitting and email us at email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns!
