Groundings is an undergraduate academic journal in the arts, humanities and social sciences, published both in print and online by GU Dialectic Society. It offers a fantastic and rare opportunity for undergraduate students at the University of Glasgow to have their work formally published in an academic, peer-reviewed journal. Now in its seventh volume, we are looking for your submissions on the theme of ‘Competition and Tradition’. Copies of Groundings are available from the University of Glasgow Library, and online at www.gla.ac.uk/groundings.
The theme of ‘Competition and Tradition’ is deliberately broad, and appeals across a range of subject areas, from music and art, literature and languages, philosophy and classics, economics, politics, history, law, and many more. Submissions can explore issues such as the construction of “competition” and “tradition”; their existence and the relationship between them; as well as past, present and future challenges to these ideas, for example by technology, individuals, groups and movements. The theme also encompasses questions about discourses, shifts, ideology, hegemony and subversion – many of which are also highly topical.
Deadline to submit your work and get a chance to be published in a peer-reviewed journal is the 2nd February 2014, so get writing!
