Compass: An Undergraduate Journal on American Political Ideas
Compass aims to provide a serious and interdisciplinary scholarly outlet for undergraduate students around the world who are interested in exploring and writing about current American political issues understood in the broad context of political philosophy, history, literature, and culture.
The journal encourages submissions from across academic disciplines and welcomes the use of various historical, philosophic, and empirical methods of analysis. This online journal aims to provide a space for the work of talented undergraduates who have original and well-articulated insights on important ideas and issues relating to American democracy.
Compass is a project of the Tocqueville Forum at Northern Illinois University, in partnership with Starting Points: A Journal of American Principles and American Practices, a project of the Kinder Institute on Constitutional Democracy at the University of Missouri.
