The Core is pleased to present students with a fantastic opportunity to publish their work:
The Agora, an on-line publication of Lynchburg College, specializing in responses to the great books of the world, has become a national journal of undergraduate academic writing. The journal, like the ancient Athenian Agora, seeks to be a marketplace for important ideas and issues.
The Agora editor invites, exclusively, students from colleges and universities who are institutional members of the Association of Core Texts and Courses (ACTC) to submit their work for consideration. BU is an institutional partner of ACTC, so yes, Core/Classics students are eligible!!!
The journal is competitive, with no more than fifteen articles published annually, including one essay in each issue featuring a piece of faculty writing that focuses on pedagogy. Submissions are reviewed by an editorial board of professors and one student representative.
Students submissions must be sponsored by a professor from the Core Curriculum. The process is simple- drop by the Core Office in CAS 119 to ask!
More details are available on the Agora website: www.agorajournal.org. Submissions are due December 15.
