Publications: Body Text
Body Text publishes the sharpest undergraduate scholarship by Haverford students in the Humanities and Social Sciences. The editors of Body Text believe that students' academic writing should travel beyond the classroom and through larger interdisciplinary circuits. Body Text aims to showcase provocative student writing and facilitate conversations across the disciplines.
You've got papers, we've got pages.
When you write a paper for a class, why let your professor be the only one to enjoy it? Haverford students are always doing fascinating research - now let your work join a larger academic conversation, beyond the classroom and across disciplines.
Body Text is Haverford's student-written, student-edited academic journal sponsored by the Hurford Center for the Arts and Humanities. We seek provocative essays in the Humanities and Social Sciences of any and all lengths.
We look for papers that are accessible, clearly argued, and stimulating. If your paper is selected for publication, we'll work with you through a collaborative editing process to prepare the final version for the journal and its audience. The entire review process is anonymous up until the point of selection.
Want to submit? Here's how:
Remove all identifying information from the essay, write an abstract (around 200 words) if the paper doesn't have one already, and email it as a Word document (.doc or .docx) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your essay should arrive as an email with the subject "Body Text Submission, [Paper Title]." Submissions must be formatted in the citation style appropriate to the standards of the paper's discipline. We are accepting papers through the end of the semester.
