Expanding Impact of Undergraduate Research: Literary Undergraduate Research at the University of West Georgia and Beyond

The expansion of an undergraduate research journal dedicated to critical work on literature, film, theory, and cultural studies at the University of West Georgia.


This proposal seeks funding to support the expansion of an Undergraduate Research Journal, LURe, open to undergraduate students nationally and run by undergraduate and graduate students at the University of West Georgia (UWG). Our aim is to continue growing the national outreach of the journal, both by increasing its presence on college campuses across the country and by inviting published authors from other schools to present their work at the annual Undergraduate Research Conference that occurs at the same time as the journal's release. Furthermore, we seek to increase the professionalization opportunities associated with working for LURe by paying our senior editorial staff, initiating formal internships as part of a new Editing and Publishing BA Certificate, inviting plenary speakers to the conference, and increasing student involvement with conference planning.
