The Vassar College Journal of Philosophy is a student-run publication supported by
the Philosophy Department of Vassar College. Dedicated to both quality and
accessibility, it seeks to give undergraduate students from all disciplines a
platform to express and discuss philosophical ideas.
All those interested in contributing an essay to the issue of the Journal to be
published in the Winter of 2018 are invited to review the submission
guidelines listed below. Every issue of the Journal has an overall theme.
Submissions ranging across a variety of topics are welcome as long as
they can be related to that theme, which this year is “Borders.”
“Borders” is a theme that lends itself to a wide variety of
philosophical approaches, including but not limited to: ethics, social
and political philosophy, logic, aesthetics, metaphysics,
epistemology, the history of philosophy, Critical Theory, philosophy
of religion, and queer and feminist theory. Theoretically oriented
works from disciplines outside philosophy such as geography,
literature, sociology, political science, mathematics, and art history
are also welcome. An essay on the theme of borders may interrogate
concepts such as territory, genre, limit, gender, or taboo.
The Journal is available digitally at philosophy.vassar.edu/students/journal.
