Emergence is a journal of advanced undergraduate research and criticism, edited by students from the Arnhold Undergraduate Research Program in the English Department. It serves as a publication outlet for undergraduate students currently conducting independent or guided research in the humanities that ultimately results in a thesis or other lengthier research paper.

Should your work be selected for publication, a full version of the paper will be published in an online volume of Emergence. By submitting your work, you have the opportunity to present your research to a broader academic audience and gain valuable experience in having your research reviewed, edited, and published.

Emergence accepts undergraduate research in English literature, film and media analysis, and cultural studies. We will also consider related humanities research that pertains closely to these topics, and for creative pieces.
