Hi CASI Friends!
I thought I'd share some information about the journal at Penn that I have been working at for the past year. wH2O: The Journal on Gender and Water is a new initiative at Penn to publish an academic journal on gender and water/sanitation issues. We welcome submissions from students, professors, professionals, etc! I had the opportunity to travel to Marseille, France for the 6th World Water Forum this past March (photos with the wH2O team and some of our contributing authors at the forum below) where I presented the journal to the Women's Preconference to the World Water Forum. I had an incredible experience and if you're interested in learning more, here are the links to my blog posts from the forum: post 1, post 2.
It would be great if we could get some CASI students/alum to submit to the journal (we accept blog posts and photo submissions as well!).
Below is additional information on our inaugural issue:
If you are interested in submitting to the journal for the 2013 issue, please email an abstract of your piece to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 15, 2012. For more information on abstracts and appropriate submissions, please visit the Submissions page on our website. To sign up for our newsletter click here.
Please feel free to forward this information to anyone you think may be interested. Sharing will make the community stronger!
I hope all of the 2012 interns are arriving safely in India!
