Calls for Submission: Asterisk* Journal at Yale University


Thursday, March 10, 2022 (All day)

Asterisk* Journal of Art is an art history and art publication started by students at Yale University two years ago. It is one of the few intercollegiate art history and art publications at the undergraduate level. You can access our previous issues here. They are seeking high-quality essays that subvert traditional narratives in art and artworks that will offer new perspectives. These works can be a version or part of a course research paper/project, independent study, or honors thesis.

For essays: Please submit a 300-word abstract that details the thesis of your essay along with the logical line of argumentation that gets you to it. Furthermore, attach a 2,000-3,000-word essay in a Microsoft Word Document with all the images you reference in the essay. You can use a maximum of 4 artworks per essay. It would be preferable if the essay were already in Chicago citation style (including footnotes, bibliography, etc.) - if you are selected, you will need to convert it to Chicago style anyways. We will peer review all essays, and writers selected for the publication will receive drafts for revision prior to publication.

For artworks: Please submit a photograph of your artworks as individual and high-resolution “.jpgs” with their titles as file names. Furthermore, please attach a 200-word description of the artwork in a Microsoft Word Document. All photographable mediums of creative work will be considered (painting, photography, digital art, drawings, etc.). Please submit titles of your work, the years they were made, and the media used. We will not accept more than 4 images per person.

To submit both artworks and essays, please email Please indicate your full name, your university, your class year, and your email. The title of the email should be in the form "Lastname, Firstname Submission.” The deadline to submit is March 10th, 2022. Please do not submit previously published work, and any submission that does not heed the rules outlined in this email will be automatically disqualified.
