Photography Submissions

Hemispheres: Tufts University Journal of International Affairs
is excited to announce its 46th edition, 2023 issue:

Old Questions, New Answers

The international system pivots on certain recurring questions. In a photograph, capture one such question or a new answer within global news.

We welcome and encourage a broad interpretation of the theme. Potential topics or motifs include but are not limited to the following:

New alliances and strategic/geopolitical partnerships, the resurgence of far-right politics, revivalism, proxy wars, cyberwarfare and technology, Asia in the international system, international versus regional institutions, capitalism, democracy, sovereignty, government transitions or obstinacy, historical memory, religion and the state

At the bottom of this page are past photo selections as examples. Outstanding submissions will address the theme meaningfully, but approaches and interpretations will vary.
