The Department of English and Philosophy is proud to house a peer-reviewed journal of undergraduate literary research.

Joining only a few journals in the nation dedicated to publishing scholarly work by undergraduate English majors, LURe promotes scholarship in literature, critical theory, film, and cultural studies. Conceived as a collaboration between Professor Lisa Crafton and English major Josh Black in the spring of 2010, the project sought, first, to acknowledge achievements in critical writing by UWG English majors and, second, to launch a peer-reviewed national journal for undergraduate scholarship.

Released in November 2010, the first volume published a collection of papers presented at the UWG Undergraduate Conference in the spring of that year. Subsequent volumes include fully peer-reviewed articles from students across the state and nation.

  • Submission & Editorial Policies

    LURe welcomes the submission of scholarly undergraduate essays on all topics and historical periods of literature, film, critical theory, or cultural studies. LURe publishes only researched articles.

    Manuscripts should be no more than 20 pages, be submitted in Microsoft Word, and conform to current MLA citation style.

    Because of the blind review process, the author's name and contact information must only appear on the title page of the work. Please include current address, phone number, email address, and institutional information.

    The online edition of the journal is hosted by Scholastica, and all electronic submissions should be sent to  https://submissions.scholasticahq.com/sites/lure.

    Please contact LURe at lurejournal@gmail.com for additional information. A member of the editorial team will contact you.
