Anamesa kick-off meeting 9/14

Want to join Anamesa?

Come to the Fall 2010 kick-off meeting to meet your fellow graduate students and learn how you can get involved:

Tuesday, September 14th at 7pm
King Juan Carlos Center, reading room

Anamesa, a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary anthology of graduate student work, is published twice yearly, and based out of NYU's John W. Draper Interdisciplinary Master's Program in Humanities and Social Thought and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies. The journal has just wrapped up its last issue, titled Intersections, and is keen on moving forward in a big way: more submissions, more editorial input from everyone, more art, more design, and more fun. Anamesa is one of the few graduate student forums in the country that not only engages with issues of transdisciplinarity, but produces a printed product.

Volunteering for Anamesa is not a tremendous time commitment, but it is a community of highly motivated editors who are passionate about publishing. And we need new staff members at all levels of the organization:
• article editors
• selection committee members
• proofreaders and copy editors
• editors for our online version
• layout and design
• publicity

Interested? Be sure to come by the general meeting on Tuesday, September 14th at 7pm in the reading room of the King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center. If you have any questions before the meeting, feel free to contact the senior editorial staff at You can also learn more about the journal and read our latest issue at, and be sure to fan us on Facebook.

See you then!

Julie Baumgardner, editor-in-chief

Alex Ponamareff & Greg Wersching, co-editorial directors
Sprout, web editor
Myong Yee Chin, contributing art director
Adrian Versteegh, editor at large
