PoliS: Carleton Journal of Political Science is a peer-reviewed undergraduate academic journal that aims to promote scholarly understandings of politics and power. Our primary objective is to foster public dialogue and critical discussion between undergraduate researchers and the broader scholarly community. We offer an understanding of politics centering around issues and topics related to the state, political institutions, and other structures of social organization and power. This may include but is not limited to, research in international relations, domestic politics, comparative politics, and political philosophy. We are dedicated to including diverse perspectives, identities, and experiences. As such, we seek to promote original student research, literature reviews, book reviews, and other forms of political insight and expression.
