Call for Papers

PLVS VLTRA of the University of Victoria is now accepting submissions for its 2018 issue, Volume 4, No. 1. The journal endeavours to publish research papers of a scholarly merit that promote research and scholarship in all areas of Hispanic and Italian Studies at the undergraduate level.

We are a peer-reviewed undergraduate journal focused on showcasing the works of students in the Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies. Undergraduate students and recent graduates from other departments and universities are invited to submit papers to the journal, as long as the paper focuses on the Hispanic or Italian world.

We publish papers written in either of the three department languages: English, Spanish, and Italian. As this journal endeavors to recognize exceptional work, submissions will undergo a hefty peer-review process. Each paper will be reviewed by at least two undergraduate students. Reviewers will address areas including clarity of writing, presentation, relevance to the theme of Hispanic and Italian Studies, originality, interdisciplinary relevance, and contribution to research in the area.

Please note – more information related to paper and author guidelines can be located in the first pages of our previous three volumes, found under the  “archives” page. The University of Victoria Writer’s Guide can also be found in the Bookstore for further consultation and MLA guidelines.


All papers should be submitted to no later than:


FEBRUARY 2, 2018
