Anemoi: Undergraduate Journal of Pre-Modern Studies
New College of Florida, Sarasota, Florida
Holly McArthur, Sarah Tew, and Tyler Kirby, editors.
Anemoi, named after the Greek deities of the four winds in honor of New College's four winds symbolism, provides an outlet for publication of high quality undergraduate papers. It also gives students experience in working with a peer-reviewed journal. It emphasizes pre-modern studies—time periods that are often overlooked. Anemoi highlights how the major fields within pre-modern are closely interrelated while academically separate.
Emerging Perspectives Graduate Conference — 1-2 May 2014, at University College Dublin, Ireland.
The UCD English Graduate Society warmly invites MA and PhD students of all levels to submit abstracts of no more than 300 words that engage with the theme 'Emerging Perspectives' for the 2014 EGS Graduate Conference.
Since 2010 the UCD English Graduate Society has provided early-stage scholars in universities across Ireland with the opportunity to share their research in a supportive environment. The fruits of their labour have been published annually in the postgraduate journal Emerging Perspectives. Both the conference and journal are kindly supported by the UCD School of English, Drama and Film.
Anemoi is a peer-reviewed undergraduate journal of pre-modern studies published by students at New College of Florida in Sarasota. We are looking for submissions and team members. We aim to provide a voice and professional experience opportunities to undergraduates.
It is an opportunity for new scholars to be published or involved in the facilitation of the journal. In addition to submitting papers for publication, students who would like to be more involved may apply on the website to be peer reviewers; students are also encouraged to take part in our publicity efforts as part of our outreach team. In return anyone on the outreach team will be formally acknowledged for their efforts.

Augmented humans often star in our favourite science fictions: from the cyberpunk heroes of William Gibson's Sprawl Trilogy to the villainous Darth Vader of George Lucas's Star Wars, fictional augmented characters teach the viewer what it means to live augmented lives. And yet, cyborgs and other types of augmented individuals are not just found in science fiction.
