Ashford University Launches the Ashford Humanities Review
Peer-reviewed publication offers students an opportunity to publish scholarly essays in the humanities
Ashford University has just released the first issue of the Ashford Humanities Review. Published by the Publications Committee of Ashford’s College of Liberal Arts, the Ashford Humanities Review is a peer-reviewed and edited publication featuring student essays relating to the humanities. This is the first of two new publications from Ashford designed to showcase the critical and creative work of Ashford students.
“In the development of the Ashford Humanities Review, we envisioned it not only to provide an outlet to display the great work of our students, but as a mechanism to bring attention to the College and University as institutions where students receive a stellar education in the liberal arts and also have an opportunity to share their work with others,” said Dr. Gabriel Scala, chair of the College of Liberal Arts Student Publication Committee at Ashford.
Current Ashford students are invited to submit critical essays on relevant topics in the humanities. Topics covered in the Ashford Humanities Review will include literature, history, linguistics, music, philosophy, religious studies, foreign languages, art, and art history. To be considered for publication, students may submit their contributions online at https://ashford.submittable.com/submit. Submissions are accepted from September 1 through June 1. The Ashford Humanities Review will be published on an annual basis in September of each year.
“Students who are published in the journal gain the additional benefit of being able to include the work in their portfolios as they seek career opportunities,” noted Dr. Julie Pedersen, editor-in-chief of the Ashford Humanities Review.
The inaugural issue of the Ashford Humanities Review was released on September 8, 2015. It features the work of four Ashford students who write on far-ranging topics such as American imperialism, the social dissenters of the Beat Generation, Adam Smith’s claim that only humans possess business cognition, and the role of the monstrous female transgressor in normative society.
