ACTC and Lynchburg College Join in New Student Publication: Agora Journal Online.

The Agora, an on-line publication of Lynchburg College and specializing in responses to the great books of the world, has become a national journal of undergraduate academic writing. Aiming to integrate classical ideas and issues with contemporary ones, the Agora takes its title from the marketplace at the heart of classical Athens, where much of Athenian public life was carried on: mercantile exchange, performance, political debate, athletic contests, and the public worship of deities, all took place within the hustle and bustle of the Athenian agora. Similarly, the journal seeks to be a marketplace for important ideas and issues.

The Agora editor invites, exclusively, students from colleges and universities who are institutional members of the Association of Core Texts and Courses (ACTC) to submit their work for consideration. The forthcoming 2007 issue will include papers written by students at Lynchburg College in Lynchburg, VA and at Henry Ford Community College in Detroit, MI. The journal is competitive, with no more than fifteen articles published annually, including one essay in each issue featuring a piece of faculty writing that focuses on pedagogy.
