Call for Papers: “The Birch” Undergraduate Journal, Deadline: February 24

The Birch: Call for Papers – Spring 2010

The Birch, the nation’s first and only undergraduate journal for Eastern
European and Eurasian studies, is calling for submissions for its Spring
2010 issue. The Birch was founded in 2004 at Columbia University in New York
and originally only included content from Columbia students. Since then, we
have grown to include submissions from over 40 institutions in the U.S., the
UK, and Russia, and we have expanded our area of interest from Russia to the
entire post-Soviet region.

The Birch is entirely student-run and includes only exceptional
undergraduate content. The journal comes out semiannually and consists of
three main sections: Creative Writing, Literary Criticism, and Culture &
Politics. We also accept original photography and illustrations.

The deadline for submissions is Feb. 24, 2010. We gladly accept papers
written for classes. The word limit is 2500. E-mail all submissions to, including your name, college or university, and
expected year of graduation.

happening at Columbia and in New York City. Thank you, and we hope to see
your work!
