2022 CONCEPT Journal Release: Recognizing Excellence in Graduate Student Scholarship

Concept banner

In April, a virtual event was held to celebrate the release of the 2022 edition of CONCEPT,  the scholarly journal of graduate students in the Villanova University College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS). This year’s edition of CONCEPT marks the 45th volume in the series.

Hosted by Emory Woodard, PhD, Dean, Graduate Studies in CLAS, the virtual recognition ceremony served as an opportunity to learn more about the multi-faceted process of getting CONCEPT prepared for publication. From enlisting faculty and graduate students to serve as editors and peer reviewers, carefully evaluating the many student submissions, and painstakingly editing student work—there are many steps involved in this great undertaking. At the event, students and faculty discussed their experiences working on production of the journal. You can view the event here.

CONCEPT accepts papers from graduate students in the arts and sciences and seeks to feature exceptional interdisciplinary work. It is published in partnership with the Office of Graduate Studies in CLAS and Falvey Library.

This year’s edition features papers covering a wide range of subjects, including Theatre, Psychology, English, History, Political Science, Philosophy, Human Resources Development, and Classical Studies.

We would like to especially highlight the work of two outstanding graduate student employees at Falvey Library: Emily Poteat and Ethan Shea. Poteat, a history major, is a graduate assistant for Distinctive Collections and Digital Engagement and Villanova’s Irish Studies Program. Her paper is titled, “Operation Barbarossa and Hitler’s War on the Eastern Front.” Shea, an English major, is a graduate assistant for the Communication and Marketing department. His piece is titled “The Unracing of Whiteness in Heart of Darkness.”

We are also proud to recognize the efforts of Library staff member Dave Uspal for his technical support of the journal. He is a member of the Technology Services department at Falvey Library.

Check out the article by Graduate Studies CLAS to learn more about the virtual event and to learn more about papers featured in the current issue, which is available in digital and print formats.

Falvey would like to congratulate the many faculty, staff, and students that made CONCEPT 2022 possible!

Additionally, complimentary breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be available throughout the day.
