Submit Your BA Thesis Today for the Chicago Studies Annual Journal


By: Christopher Hansen, Communications Intern for Chicago Studies

The Chicago Studies Program of the University Community Service Center (UCSC) invites you to submit your Chicago-focused senior thesis for consideration in the Chicago Studies Annual Journal.

Each year, University of Chicago undergraduates conduct original research on various aspects of Chicago - politics, history, culture, etc. - and produce publishable work in upper-level classes and BA thesis colloquiums. Students now have the opportunity to submit their work for publication in "Chicago Studies: An Annual of Undergraduate Research on the Chicago Region."

The Chicago region continues to be an academic laboratory for the University of Chicago, and the Journal showcases some of the best academic work about the city produced by undergraduate students. The first volume was released in Autumn 2008.

Eligible papers must:
• deal with some aspect of the Chicago region;
• contain original research;
• have been completed by a University of Chicago undergraduate as a component of a class or degree requirement; and
• be nominated by a faculty member.

Students from all academic disciplines within the College are eligible to submit. To be considered, submissions must be formatted in a Microsoft Word document and sent via email by Friday, July 21 to Martha Merritt, the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and Development, at
