Now Accepting Submissions from Undergraduate Students in all Academic Disciplines
LOGOS is an annual publication developed and edited by students in Missouri State University’s Honors College. Each volume features academic scholarship and artistry produced by undergraduate students and selected in a double-blind, peer reviewed process.
LOGOS is directed by a student Editorial Board that includes a chief editor, a lead associate editor, and associate editors selected from the Honors College. The Editorial Board is led by a managing editor who oversees the administrative production of the journal. The editors are also mentored and supported by a Faculty Advisory Board, which currently includes:
Dr. John Chuchiak, Director of the Honors College and Professor of Colonial Latin American History
Tracy Dalton, Senior Instructor of English

Free public lecture, “Not Yet Marrano: Levinas, Derrida and the Ontology of ‘Being Jewish'” on Thursday, September 4, at 4:00 p.m. in Meyer Library 101 with Dr. Ethan Kleinberg, Professor of History and Letters at Wesleyan University.
Professor Kleinberg will examine the ways that French philosophers Emmanuel Levinas and Jacques Derrida each confront the issue of Jewish identity in relation to their own philosophical work and also in relation to their respective historical contexts. He will also raise issues concerning current notions of identity and identity construction.
Professor Kleinberg’s scholarly work crosses the fields of history, philosophy, comparative literature and religion. He is the author of Generation Existential: Martin Heidegger’s Philosophy in France, 1927-1961, which was awarded the 2006 Morris D. Forkosch prize for the best book in intellectual history, by the Journal of the History of Ideas.
This talk is brought to you by MSU and the Workshop for Critical Inquiry.
