Call for Submissions for the spring 2014 issue of the CUR Quarterly:

 “Human Rights and Undergraduate Research”

The theme of the spring 2014 CUR Quarterly will focus on undergraduate research on human rights.  We hope to attract four to five articles that report on or explore issues regarding research from a variety of disciplines on a number of different human rights issues.  In addition, we welcome shorter vignettes (300 words) that offer concrete, creative suggestions with regard to any aspect of undergraduate research and human rights.

Examples of topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

·        Descriptions of innovative efforts to include undergraduates in human rights research or to encourage undergraduates to pursue their own human rights research questions

·        Examples of courses or other structures that expose undergraduates to human rights issues and encourage them to design research projects to further explore these issues

·        Reflections on methodological issues involved when undergraduates conduct research on human rights issues

·        Explorations of ethical issues when conducting undergraduate research on human rights

If you are interested in contributing an article or vignette, please submit a short (300-500 words) prospectus describing the focus of your proposed article or vignette online at (this is a new process- see some additional details below) by March 15, 2013. Accepted authors will be notified by April 1, 2013.

Final articles will be 2000 to 3500 words in length.  The final text for review and editing must be submitted by June 1, 2013.

Please forward the message to anyone who might be interested in submitting an article or vignette. Also note the CURQ takes non-theme articles at anytime here:
