The Columbia Journal of Literary Criticism was founded in 2002-2003 by students majoring in English at Columbia, but it operates independent of the English Department. Its aim is to offer a trans-disciplinary forum favoring critical thinking and uniting students in the Humanities. The Journal is printed once a year and publishes about a dozen rigorous academic papers written by undergraduates, as well as interviews with current intellectuals and book reviews. The CJLC also plans events and seminars on a variety of topics, all tied in some way to critical, literary, or political theory, or simply literature. If you are interested in getting involved, want more information, or would like to submit an essay, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions for the 2014 journal are due November 18th.
