2023 Extended Call for Undergraduate Submissions

I am Riya Mehta, Editor-in-Chief for Hemispheres: The Tufts University Journal of International Affairs. We are a student-run academic journal that publishes outstanding research papers and photographs by undergraduates in the field of international affairs and we are now seeking submissions for our 46th issue on the theme of Old Questions, New Answers. See below for details. The flyer attached can be redistributed via email or posted on campuses.

Hemispheres is one of the oldest undergraduate journals in the field. Submissions should be research pieces, approx. 5000-8000 words, written by undergraduates from a broad range of disciplines relevant to international affairs (economics, history, sociology, etc.). Visit this link for the paper requirements and guidelines; please direct all submissions to hemispheres@tufts.edu and ensure compliance with the submission checklist.

Submission Deadline: February 3, 2023

The international system is always centered around certain recurring questions. In this issue of Hemispheres, students will identify and assess potential answers that have surfaced or are emerging within global affairs.

We welcome and encourage a broad interpretation of the theme. Potential research topics may include but are not limited to the following:

New alliances and strategic/geopolitical partnerships, the resurgence of far-right politics, revivalism, proxy wars, cyber warfare and technology, Asia in the international system, international versus regional institutions, capitalism, democracy, sovereignty, government transitions or obstinacy, historical memory, religion and the state.

If you have any questions, please contact us via hemispheres@tufts.edu. We hope you can forward this information to students and/or faculty in your department and appreciate your assistance with promoting excellence in undergraduate scholarship.
