Process seeks to engage and cultivate timely and stakes-driven conversations among undergraduates, encouraging students to actively participate in public scholarship. These conversations cover a range of topics, but we are especially committed to submissions that demonstrate rigorous engagement with issues of social justice, transformative education, politics, identity, and cultural production.
