The application deadline is 11:59 PM PST, Feb 7th. If you intend to apply, please fill out the application form below and attach a writing sample that best demonstrates your critical thinking ability. Knowledge of multiple languages is not required, but would be very helpful as we engage with material written in languages other than English. We welcome students from various disciplines to apply and contribute to our discussions.
Info session zoom link: [6:00-7:00 PM PST, Jan 28th]
Before submitting your application, you are highly encouraged to participate in the info session at 6-7 PM PST, Jan 28th, during which the current editorial board will provide an overview of editors’ obligations and answer questions. We look forward to meeting you there!

The UC Berkeley Comparative Literature Undergraduate Journal (CLUJ) is seeking editors for the Spring 2022 semester! As one of the premier undergraduate journals in the field, publishing articles from students across the world, CLUJ is a great way to get involved in the department, meet people who share your passion for literature and languages, acquire valuable writing skills, and give that resume a boost – all at the same time.

We are seeking editors from diverse disciplines across campus. Editors do not need to be Comparative Literature majors to join – we only require that our editors be responsible contributors and excellent writers. Fluency in a foreign language is a plus but not at all required. Responsibilities include reading and evaluating submissions, writing blog posts, and participating in the print and online publication process. All incoming editors have the option of enrolling in the CLUJ DeCal. Once we have approved your application, we will provide you with the CCN for the course.
