An Interdisciplinary Public Humanities Project
We are a group of Emory College undergraduates with a mission to unlock the superpower of interdisciplinary humanities via public-facing projects on society, politics, and ethics.
Emory Journal of Society, Politics, and Ethics is a peer-edited and peer-reviewed interdisciplinary undergraduate journal for and by Emory students. It was first envisioned by one of our distinguished alum, Sarah Lee (ECAS – Philosophy ‘20). Sarah Lee and the editorial team published their first issue in 2019-2020, which included peer-reviewed interdisciplinary essays on society, politics, and ethics. After a hiatus between 2020-2022, we have re-relaunched the JSPE as an Interdisciplinary Public Humanities Project.
We are especially interested in creative or academic work that is relevant to current sociopolitical concerns and pushes the boundaries of the humanitarian disciplines. Due to our interdisciplinary approach toward scholarship, we welcome work from majors across the humanities, social sciences, and the liberal arts, including but not limited to Philosophy and Philosophy, Politics, and Law, Comparative Literature, Art History, Film and Media Studies, African American Studies, French, German, English, Classics, Creative Writing, Interdisciplinary Studies, Middle Eastern and South Asian Studies, History, Sociology, Political Theory, Anthropology, Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, Dance and Movement Studies, Music and Spanish and Portuguese.
Going forward, we aim to publish two (2) issues a year, one in the Fall and one in the Spring.
Editorial Team for 2022-2023: Terra Wilbanks, Marlie Golden, LuLu Scully, MacKenzie White, Jungwoo Seo
