Journal History

Emergence was launched in 2010, in conjunction with the Arnhold Undergraduate Research Fellows Program.  Both the journal and the program are part of an initiative within the English Department at the University of California, Santa Barbara, to develop a focused presence for undergraduate research within the department.

In its initial year, Emergence and the Arnhold Undergraduate Research Fellows Program were directed by Julia Panko, the 2009-2010 Arnhold Graduate Fellow. 

During the 2010-2011 academic year, Emergence and the Arnhold Undergraduate Research Fellows Program will be under the direction of Shannon Brennan, the 2010-2011 Arnhold Graduate Fellow.
