OUR MISSION

Promoting Undergraduate Research

Founded at Tulane University by six undergraduate students, The Tulane Journal of Policy and Political Economy seeks to further political and economic research by providing undergraduates with the opportunity to have their own original research published in an internationally-recognized, peer- and faculty-reviewed journal. 

 

By maintaining an international network of faculty, students, and organizations within the world's foremost academic institutions, we ensure that accepted student writings reach far beyond their home schools.

 

ABOUT

OUR VISION

Biannual Publication and Collaboration

The Tulane Journal will publish issues twice a year, available as a physical copy or in digital form. Publishing with The Tulane Journal not only disseminates original, scholarly research, but also provides writers and contributors with a collaborative editorial process.

 

All accepted articles will undergo a rigorous review by faculty at Tulane University, who specialize in the core, intersecting themes of The Tulane Journal. The Tulane Journal and its involved students aim to be at the forefront of policy and political economy research.

 
Our Executive Board
Max Weber
Editor-in-Chief
Tulane University '22

Max's background in activism and political campaigning is reflected in his focus on international political protest. He hopes to continue his studies of Political Economy and Russian into a career in academics, where he will focus on post-Soviet activism. When he's not organizing events or working in Tulane's admissions office, he can be found learning Russian or enjoying a brisk bike ride.

Jada Roth
Managing Editor
Tulane University '22

Jada is pursuing her degree in Chemical Engineering and hopes to work in the biotechnology or pharmaceutical industry one day. A native of Tempe, AZ, Jada certainly misses the desert, but she is greatly enjoying her time in the big easy. She is excited about channeling her passion for journalism and politics through her involvement with the journal.

Michael Chen
Chief Operating Officer

Michael applies his studies in Political Science, Social Policy & Practice, and History through his research on nursing discrimination, LGBTQ+ judicial politics, and the rise of right-wing European politics.

Westley Sturhan
Chief Financial Officer
Tulane University '22

Westley is studying Political Economy and Public Health. One day, he hopes to apply his studies and pursue Health Law. He is also the president of Tulane Engineers without Borders, a Habitat for Humanity aficionado, and a huge fan of Star Wars.
