Opportunity for Undergraduates to Publish with Dartmouth Journal

My name is Jacob Meister and I am the Editor-in-Chief of the Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Politics, Economics and World Affairs, an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed publication from Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. DUJPEW publishes integrative scholarship relating to politics, economics and international relations by current undergraduate students, and we are now seeking submissions for our 2019 issue. DUJPEW’s inaugural issue was published in May of last year and has since been downloaded thousands of times across six continents by educational, commercial, governmental, and military institutions alike. Scholarship in DUJPEW is seen by high-ranking scholars, public servants and professionals, instantly improving the reputation of our contributors’ work and providing them with further credibility in fields they may choose to pursue down the line.

It is my hope that you will pass along this message concerning the opportunity to publish with our journal to your qualified students. DUJPEW looks to publish articles between 4,500 and 15,000 words, excluding citations and appendices, submitted by currently enrolled undergraduates at any accredited academic institution in the world. Our editorial board, comprised entirely of Dartmouth students and overseen by Dartmouth faculty, carefully examines all submissions relating to politics, economics and international relations in an effort to publish the most forward-thinking and relevant scholarship possible.

For those interested in publishing with DUJPEW, the submission deadline for our 2019 issue is Sunday, March 31st at midnight (EST). For more information regarding our submission process and guidelines, as well as any other inquiries, please visit: https://digitalcommons.dartmouth.edu/dujpew/.

Thank you for your help and consideration.

Sincerely,

Jacob Meister ‘20

Earth Day is coming! Join us

Hi,

I am writing as a supporter of the student-led Earth Day Planning Committee. While traditionally Earth Day at the University of Washington has been an environmental-centric festival, this year we are expanded the conversation to include the economic, social, and political aspects that we believe are crucial to any discussion of sustainability. Which is why our theme this year is Engage for Earth!

We are reaching out to invite al UW-members (as well as programs, schools, departments, and student groups) to actively participate in this year’s Earth Day events!

There are different ways to participate:

A. Poster Design Contest: Show us how you… ENGAGE FOR EARTH

For Earth Day 2019 we are focused on raising awareness of environmental justice and engaging with diverse forms of sustainability. The Earth Day Planning Committee encourages applicants to explore non-traditional design language that goes beyond environmental sustainability and highlights the broad themes of Action, Diversity, Equity, and Environmental Justice. The contest is open to all UW students, faculty, staff, and alumni. More information can be found in the attached flyer.

Poster designs are due by midnight on March 12, 2019

B. Taking part of the program either during Earth Week or during Earth Day.

During Earth Day you can also participate by setting up a table to pass information and engage with other students. We are expecting lots of foot traffic so it would be an excellent way to gain exposure. Our programming will include speakers, exhibitors, performances, art, film screenings, panels, and more to both engage and empower students and local community members to get involved in their communities. There’s a lot of room for groups to get creative and participate in a way that really enhances this dialogue and gives all a chance to showcase what they do and what they’re passionate about, beyond the more classic tabling model.

In addition to Earth Day, we will also be facilitating several related events in the week leading up to the April 22nd festivities. All UW departments and groups are encouraged to create their own event during the month of April focusing on diversity, environmental or social justice, or sustainability as part of Earth Week. To have your event included on the UW’s Earth Week event calendar, email sustainability.

Please help us by sharing this information in your units and among groups.

We’d love to have multiple perspectives to be a part of our Earth Day events. For those interested in participating, please contact the student coordinator, Sarah Culp, at sfculp. We look forward to learning how you engage!

Save the date!
