*The Journal for Undergraduate Ethnography* (JUE) is an online journal for

rituals and social institutions. The JUE encourages current undergraduates
or those who have graduated within the past twelve months to submit
original ethnographic manuscripts for consideration. Papers may include
research on any topic. We also encourage faculty to recommend promising
student work.

Submissions are welcomed for our next issues. Deadlines are *January 31 *and
July 31. Please check out our website (undergraduateethnography.org)

Presentations may take the form of interactive presentations, short papers, project demos, or panel discussions. We welcome proposals from emerging and veteran students, teachers, and scholars.

In addition, we are thrilled to announce that Dr. Miriam Posner, Coordinator and Core Faculty of the Digital Humanities Program at UCLA, will be presenting the keynote lecture, “What’s Next?: The Radical, Unrealized Potential of Digital Humanities.”

The community will be invited to vote on proposals that they would like to see included in the program. The 10 proposals with the highest scores are guaranteed a slot at the conference. The Program Committee will curate the remainder of the program in an effort to ensure diversity in program content and presenters. Community votes will, of course, still weigh heavily in these decisions.

Girls Studies

Girls Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal for Undergraduate Research is a peer reviewed, open access journal that publishes the work of undergraduate students on topics such as the socialization of female adolescents, gender expectations, identity, body image, the impact of media on girls, and girl empowerment. Submissions of an interdisciplinary nature as well as from across the disciplines–for example, from Sociology, History, Literature, Cultural Studies, Education, Art, and Feminist Theory (to name a few)– are welcomed.

The aim of Girls Studies is to provide a forum for undergraduate students in a variety of disciplines to engage in conversations of gender and equality, particularly as it relates to the field of girls studies. It is our hope that, by participating in this particular academic discourse, these students will critically engage in these issues beyond their undergraduate studies, either in graduate work or in their professional lives.

We invite undergraduates of any institution to submit the following:

• Editorial, opinion, or perspective essays

• Research papers

• Reviews of relevant media (books, movies, television)

Likewise, we encourage those who work with undergraduate students to urge revision of course assignments with the aim of submission to Girls Studies.

Further information can be found, and submissions made, at our website (gsj.columbiasc.edu).

Inquiries can be sent to Dr. Heather Hahn (hhahn@columbiasc.edu) or Dr. Allan Nail (allan.nail@columbiasc.edu), editors.

“Science and Gender Matters: No Limits 2013”

March 1-2, 2013 at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln

Hosted by the UNL Women’s and Gender Studies Program

“No Limits” is an annual student conference dedicated to crossing boundaries between disciplines and exploring a wide range of women’s and gender issues. We invite proposals from undergraduates, graduate students, and recent graduates on any topic from any discipline related to women’s issues, lives, histories or cultures; feminism; or women’s and gender studies. Creative writing, visual arts, film, music, performances, workshops, and academic papers are all welcome. Proposals for individual presentations or pre-made panels are accepted.

While papers and panels can address a variety of themes, this year’s keynote and panel discussion will address the conference theme of “Science and Gender Matters.” Janet Kourany, feminist philosopher of science and professor at the University of Notre Dame, will deliver the keynote talk “But What Happens When the Scientists Are Women?” In addition, UNL associate professor Sarah Gervais will lead a panel discussion on “Applying Gender to Psychology Research: Helping Students Create New Knowledge.” Her students will describe their experiences working with Gervais’ research team and answer questions about their work and research from the audience.

Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) Undergraduate Poster Session on Capital Hill

Please remember that the Application Deadline for the 2011 Posters on the Hill event is November 15, 2010.

Nothing more effectively demonstrates the value of undergraduate research than the words and stories of the student participants themselves. In the Spring of 2011 the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) will host its 15th annual undergraduate poster session on Capitol Hill. This event will help members of Congress understand the importance of undergraduate research by talking directly with the students whom these programs impact.

CUR is calling for students to submit an abstract of their research that represents any of CUR’s disciplinary divisions (Arts and Humanities, Biology, Chemistry, Geosciences, Health Sciences, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics/Astronomy, Psychology, and Social Sciences). In order to ensure proper review of applications, the above are the only disciplines that may apply.  Should your research be inter-disciplinary, please select the division that most closely describes your research.

Abstract submissions will only be accepted by using our on-line submission form.  Prior to submitting the form, students should gather the contact information for all co-authors, advisors and sponsors (if applicable), prepare a short vitae/resume, and poster abstract. 

For more information, the link to submit an application, frequently asked questions, and a document listing the information required for submission, please visit:
http://www.cur.org/pohcall.html 

Please note that CUR membership is required to submit an application.  Either the student’s home institution must have an institutional membership, or the faculty mentor or student must have an individual membership.  We will not review incomplete applications. Please be sure that both portions (the electronic application and the electronic recommendation letter) are submitted by November 15, 2010. 

Please forward this to anyone that you think might be interested. This is a highly competitive program, which makes for a very exciting experience for the students and their faculty advisors alike.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Sincerely,


Robin Howard
