Academic Forum #35 Call for Papers

You are invited to submit papers for publication in the 2017–2018 Academic Forum, which will be published in print and online versions. We welcome submissions from all Henderson faculty, graduate students, staff, and alumni. Outstanding undergraduate students papers sponsored by members of the faculty will also be considered. Copyright will be maintained by the author so that publication in Academic Forum will not preclude publication in a journal of wide circulation.

Essays submitted to the Academic Forum should be written with a general audience in mind.
