Inprint

InPrint is AUC’s academic journal. We publish twice per academic year: the Capstone Issue in December, and the Open Issue in May. These publications showcase the excellent and diverse undergraduate work that takes place here at AUC – and to keep this going we need your submissions!

 

Having just finished the Capstone Issue (check it out here https://aucsa.nl/committees/inprint/), we’re now taking submissions for our next Open Issue. There are no restrictions to topic, provided the paper is suitable for publication and its argumentation is scientifically sound. Papers submitted for electives can also be submitted.

 

The author must be a student at AUC at the time of submission. If selected, the editorial board will work with the authors to polish and improve the papers before publication. Papers should be 3500 words or less, but longer essays can be shortened.

 

Sound interesting? You can apply by sending an e-mail to inprint@aucsa.nl, but first make sure to check the submissions guidelines here! The deadline is on the 14th of February at 23:59. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates!

Reading in Quarantine: Pandemic Literature in Times of COVID-19

As countries across the world have been forced into lockdown due to the Coronavirus, people have started reading again. And they’re all reading Albert Camus’ The Plague, about a North African town struck by the plague. However, Camus’ novel is only the most famous in a long and venerable tradition of imaginative writing about pandemics, which includes works by literary giants such as Bocaccio, Daniel Defoe, Mary Shelley, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and José Saramago.

In this undergraduate research project, we’ll be acquainting ourselves with this literary tradition. Reading this pandemic literature in times of COVID-19 will make this tradition newly relevant and enable us to develop new and fresh interpretations. At the same time, it may offer us unexpected perspectives on our own challenging times. In any case, the aim of this URP is twofold: students will not only achieve in-depth knowledge of pandemic literature, but they’ll also use this knowledge to reflect critically on our own times. As such, this URP will require participants to read, discuss, reflect, and write intensively about pandemic literature, about the Coronavirus, and, possibly, about themselves.

To get involved, send an email to f.j.krijnen@auc.nl to show your interest!

  • Some knowledge of digital techniques, online marketing or other skills that companies can use right now. You do not have to be an expert, as long as you know more as the small company you can already be of help!

  • Tell us what you can help with, so we can make a good match

  • Willingness to comunicate with the company via Skype, Zoom, phone or another tool

What happens after signing up?

  • When a company signs up and is a match with your skillset, we match you and the company and we will inform you about that

Dit community project kan doorgang vinden, ondanks covid-19 omstandigheden. Zo kunnen studenten gedurende een half of heel jaar in een grote ruimte bij voetbalclub Zeeburgia bijles geven, met fysieke contacten volgens het anderhalve meter corona protocol (met spatschermen). Juist in een tijd waarin nog veel UvA onderwijs online zal plaatsvinden, kan dit voor veel studenten heel aantrekkelijk zijn.
