Stefani and I will be walking around campus tomorrow for Imagine Day! Look for our IAMUBC purple t-shirts with THE ATLAS written on the back, and feel free to come up to us and ask us questions about the journal this year.

Also, the History Students Association will have a booth at the Arts Faculty Fair in Buchanan Courtyard tomorrow from 10am to 1pm. Be sure to check it for all the cool things happening with the club, as well as to meet some of the executives! 

Hope to see you on campus tomorrow,

Kelsey, Co-Editor-in-Chief

We are now accepting applicants for our 2013/14 Editorial Board! 

Greetings! and welcome to another school year and another year for The Atlas! We are currently on the hunt for some amazingly fantastic individuals to help us with the launch of our 2013/14 issue. 

You don’t have to be a History major or minor to help us out, but must possess an interest in History and strong writing skills. Previous experience is not required as all our Editors will be trained by a member of the UBC History Department. Editors need to be undergraduate students attending UBC Vancouver and registered members of the History Student’ Association (an awesome student club that you can still apply for after our Editorial selections – if you aren’t already a member). 

Editors are responsible for strengthening the presence of The Atlas on campus (and its calls for submissions), and editing and evaluating submissions. Editors are expected to meet tight deadlines and attend all general and committee meetings, and our annual launch party.

The time commitment for Editors will vary, with a majority of deadlines and work in the second semester. During second semester, Editors can expect to commit up to 10 hours a week at peak deadlines. 

As members of our Editorial Board, Editors will gain experience in writing and editing for an academic journal, and critically evaluating research papers. Editors will additionally gain the opportunity to contribute to UBC’s academic community and be credited for their work in a nationally recognized undergraduate journal. 

If you are interested in helping out with the 2013/14 edition of The Atlas, email us with your year of study, program of study, and a 2-page writing sample to atlasjournal@gmail.com! 

Applications are due by 11:59pm on October 16, 2013.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Stefani & Kelsey, Editors-in-Chief
