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.
