Call For Undergraduate Papers – Twin Cities Review of Political Philosophy

Public Reasoners,

We are trying to produce an electronic publication with articles written for and by undergraduates interested in political philosophy.  Our student board has sent out a Call for Papers for undergraduate scholarship that promotes in interesting read in political philosophy and/or serves as exemplary research work at the undergraduate level.  While the journal is produced by students in the Twin Cities area of Minneapolis/Saint Paul, submissions are open to all.  If you have any interested undergraduates, or you happen to be one who is reading this, please consider contributing.  The papers selected for publication will be selected by the student board, and undergraduates will work with the student board in producing a finished draft of their submission for publication this summer. Below is the CFP our students wrote.  Thanks for your attention.
