Interpolations is a refereed online journal showcasing superior
student writing from the English Department's First Year Writing
Program. These essays represent the finest work--a combination of
compelling ideas and outstanding writing--being produced by our academic
community's newest members.
One of the purposes of an academic
community is to facilitate the exchange of ideas between its members so
that vibrant conversations can grow out of the perspectives in those
members' work. This journal is an effort to foster our students' voices
in the University of Maryland's ongoing academic discourse. In addition
to the thought provoking essays that appear in the journal, there will
eventually be forums for the entire university community to respond to
these papers so that a real visible dialogue can occur in this space.
