FIVE - 5Cs Journal: Submit Your Writing!

Are you a Claremont Colleges undergrad? If so, you are invited to submit academic writing that you have produced while a student at The Claremont Colleges for publication in the second issue of FIVE, an online journal in scholarship@Claremont, which will feature outstanding undergraduate academic works from the 5Cs. The second issue of this journal will be published at the end of Fall semester, 2012.

Submissions must be received by Monday, October 8.

This new journal seeks to publish outstanding academic writing from across the disciplines. What is academic writing? It's the kind of writing you generally do for classes--for example, research papers, project reports, historical analyses, psychological studies, political arguments, close readings or explications of another piece of writing.

All submissions will have identifying information removed and will then be reviewed by a Board of Reviewers and an Editorial Board, both comprised of students, faculty, and librarians from across The Claremont Colleges.

How do you submit your writing? Go to Five Submission Guidelines.

Have questions? Contact the Coordinator of your campus Writing Center or email FIVE Staff.

Constitution Day Events at the Library

On Constitution Day, Mon., Sept. 17, come to the Services Desk at Honnold/Mudd Library and pick up a free copy of of book, The Declaration of Independence and Other Great Documents Of American History, 1175-1865.

On Wednesday, September 19th, please join us at 4:15 PM in the Founder's Room of Honnold/Mudd Library for a Claremont Discourse panel discussion in recognition of Constitution Day:

The Constitution and The American Family

with Audrey Bilger (CMC Literature), N Ann Davis (Pomona Philosophy), Diana Selig (CMC, History), George Thomas (CMC Government) Janet Farrell Brodie, moderator (CGU History).

The Constitution aims to guarantee individual rights, yet is remarkably silent on the matter of what defines a family and which family members are entitled to particular constitutional protections. Debates over such topics as marriage, parental rights, and reproductive technologies have raised complex questions for the courts, representatives and citizens. At this panel, scholars from a range of disciplines will consider the significance and status of the family under the Constitution.
