This site is no longer accepting submissions.

Forbes & Fifth, a journal produced by Dietrich School undergraduates at the University of Pittsburgh, and sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity, unites works of research, creative writing, and scholarly articles under the banner of interdisciplinary collaboration.

We seek articles of an interdisciplinary nature, both in form and content. We've featured research articles on Internet memes, Peruvian terrorism, Mongolian folk rock, Great Britain's "Little Ice Age," as well as poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. We're also interested in visual art, translations, and reviews.
