Blog Submissions

What we’re looking for:

Blogs should be directed at a general audience, be well-sourced, and make a compelling argument. We publish content on a wide range of topics including science and technology studies, cultural criticism, cultural identity and politics, traditional and new media, politics and government, art and technology, mediated communication and digital representation, and more. Gnovis wants to create a forward-thinking ecosystem of ideas and examination, concerned with evaluating the future of our fast-evolving culture. 

While our subject matters vary, we look for pieces that deal with trends and societal change. In the past, we have published articles on global political campaigns, how technology is changing the way we experience healthcare, and how digital platforms are interacting with LGBTQ content.

If you have an idea for a blog but aren’t sure if the topic is appropriate, feel free to ask! Direct questions to the director of digital content, Eish Sumra at es1469@georgetown.edu.

How gnovis blogging works:

Please submit potential blogs to es1469@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. 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. We are also looking for columnists who would like to be regular features on our website, please reach out to us if you would like to know more about this opportunity. 

Blog guidelines:

  • Must be in the 500–1000 word range, though longer/shorter pieces 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, we encourage personal opinion articles but also highly value academic research and reviews from University or professional experiences
