Trinity Postgraduate Review is a multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed postgraduate research journal operated by the Graduate Students Union of Trinity College Dublin in Ireland.
Every year, we seek to publish the best and most exciting work being done by postgraduate students both here in Trinity College and internationally.
Now entering our seventeenth year, we are seeking submissions of research papers from all graduate students – in any discipline, at any level – in response to our theme for volume XVII: Knowledge and Society.
In a world increasingly characterized by the overturning of old certainties, questions of what we know, and how we know it, are of immediate importance. Knowledge can be conscious or unconscious, affirming or challenging, inherited, forbidden, recalled, lost. The form that it takes, and the means by which it is disseminated, determines the way that societies act and react to the world.
We intend for the theme to be interpreted as broadly and creatively as possible. In the fields of the arts and humanities, how is knowledge treated as a theme in literature? What does social history tell us about the development of society? How do we trace influences between artists, composers, and writers? In the fields of social science and politics, how is society conceived of in a political and psychological sense? What are the issues surrounding collective memory? In the hard sciences, how is new research challenging what we think we know about the way nature and the world works? How do we foreground the impact that science has on society?
If you wish to submit, simply send a 250 word abstract of your proposed paper by the end of Tuesday, November 14, 2017 to email@example.com.
You can read the full call for papers, as well as our submission guidelines and previous volumes, on our website at https://trinitypostgradrev.wixsite.com/tcd-ie.
