Ramify is intended to reflect the unique intellectual atmosphere of the Braniff Graduate School of Liberal Arts. It is therefore multi-disciplinary, and publishes serious but jargon-free intellectual treatments on topics of humane interest. The journal seeks to foster the involvement of scholars, teachers, and students in the ongoing dialogue within the Western tradition.
Ramify is edited by Braniff graduate students; Braniff faculty members provide oversight in order to maintain a high standard of scholarship. Each issue highlights several essays from Braniff graduate students, and also includes an essay from an “outside scholar” and one from a University of Dallas faculty member. In order to foster scholarly work in the language arts, Ramify also publishes artistic translations of literary works.
While focused on great works within the Western tradition, Ramify remains engaged with the broader academic community. And, while respectful of our tradition, our outlook is exploratory, interpretive, and broad.
Ramify: Call for Applications for Editors, 2013-2014
To all Braniff students in Master's and IPS programs,
The editors of Ramify: the Journal of the Braniff Graduate School of Liberal Arts are now accepting applications for the editorial board of the fifth volume, which is to be published during the 2013-2014 school year.
Positions to be filled may include Editors and Associate Editors, the latter of which includes a commitment to serve on the editorial board for two issues (over two academic years) in order to promote continuity on the staff. Applicants should indicate their desire to be considered for an Associate Editor position. We expect that next year's editorial staff will receive a modest honorarium comparable to that received by this year's staff; however, the budget will not be set until the Fall 2013 semester.
* Love for the written word and for academic excellence.
* Some knowledge of most or all of the disciplines taught at Braniff.
* Ability and availability to communicate regularly with the editorial staff.
* Availability during the summer months in particular (actual residence in the DFW area during the summer months not required).
* Editorial and/or publishing experience appreciated, but not required.
Interested parties should send an e-mail to EditorInChief@ramify.org by Friday, April 19 at 5 PM. Please include your full name, the program you are currently enrolled in, your preferred email address, and a contact phone number. You may include a brief curriculum vitae; however, that is not required for consideration. Applicants will be interviewed by the lead editors of the fifth volume.
Students from all disciplines within the Braniff Graduate School are welcome to apply.
