Topic areas


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
