Submit- Blog

What we’re looking for:

Blogs should be directed at a general audience, be well sourced, and make a compelling academic argument. We publish content on a wide range of topics including: science and technology studies, cultural criticism, cultural identity and politics, traditional and new medias, politics and government, art and technology, mediated communication and digital representation, and more. If you have an idea for a blog but aren’t sure if the topic is appropriate, feel free to ask! Direct questions to gnovis@georgetown.edu.

How gnovis blogging works:

Please submit potential blogs to the gnovis@georgetown.edu with the subject line: gnovis BLOG. In the email, please include a short (2–3 sentence) summary of the topic covered and argument made. Blog drafts are shared to the blog manager through Google Docs. If the blog is accepted, the author will receive an email with further instructions, including an editing schedule detailing  any needed changes, from the blog manager. Bloggers will generally be given a week to make revisions before submitting a final draft . Accepted authors will be credited as a guest blogger and will receive a notification via email when the blog goes live on gnovisjournal.org.

Blog guidelines:

  • authors must be enrolled in a graduate or undergraduate program
  • must be in the 500–1000 word range, though longer arguments are acceptable
  • must include in-text and end-of-text citations (whatever format you prefer, but must be consistent throughout) and provide links to online content where appropriate
  • style/tone can be less formal than in academic papers, but keep in mind that gnovis is fundamentally an academic journal and blog
  • must utilize at least one featured image, but more images or other embedded media are welcome
