Vexillum: An Undergraduate Journal
"Vexillum" is an undergraduate journal that supports and promotes undergraduate scholarship in the fields of Classical and Medieval Studies, and accepts scholarly essays by undergraduate students written on a wide range of topics, including but not limited to: history, literature, philosophy, archaeology, art history, sociology, philology, and linguistics. "Vexillum" provides a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to submit outstanding papers for peer review from other undergraduates, an opportunity rarely achieved in the undergraduate years.
Papers may address any of the above topics pertaining to aspect of the cultures and civilizations of Europe, the Near East and Central Asia between 3,600 B.C.E. and 1500 C.E. – papers focused largely on other parts of the world (i.e. Eastern or Southern Asia) will be considered, so long as some connection to one of the three aforementioned areas is made. Papers submitted for consideration are to be written in English, but may include citations from non-English sources, so long as a translation is provided in the notes. Papers must be between 1250 and 5000 words in length (not including notes and bibliography), and may include original black and white figures. Though "Vexillum" is published in conjunction with the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at Western Washington University, submissions are welcome from across the United States and Canada.
The deadline for submissions is January 15th, 2011.
