Call for Features

Dear TCU presidents, deans, faculty, friends, and writers,

Tribal College Journal is planning an issue focused on “Art and Symbolism” (Vol. 25, No. 1, Fall 2013), and we are seeking your suggestions. Please send an email to with story ideas or a few sentences about important issues or innovative programs at your tribal college.

Please send us your ideas before March 1, 2013.

(The call for “On Campus” shorts will be coming out later. The deadline for shorts will be April 28.)

Art and Symbolism, Volume 25, No. 1, Fall 2013 (includes TCJ Student)

Today, students at tribal colleges and universities produce a great deal of original art. How do tribal colleges and universities foster art? How do such works reflect the worldviews and lives of the artists, as well as their progenitors? And how do Native artists today reconcile the contemporary with the traditional?

Even if you don’t have the time to write a story yourself, please send us information about what’s happening in this area at your tribal college. Oftentimes, we incorporate that information into the feature stories and the Editor’s Essay. We’re also always seeking Talking Circle and Voices columns, as well as profile ideas.

We appreciate being able to rely upon all of you to keep us informed about what’s happening at your tribal college or university. So please let us know what’s happening—and thank you for your ideas!
