Ramify Journal

Read the ongoing dialogue within the Western tradition from the perspective of the Braniff Graduate School. 

Ramify is the journal of the Braniff Graduate School of Liberal Arts. It is intended to reflect the unique intellectual atmosphere of our graduate programs. It is therefore multi-disciplinary, and publishes serious but jargon-free intellectual treatments on topics of humane interest. The journal seeks to foster the involvement of scholars, teachers, and students in the ongoing dialogue within the Western tradition. 

A journal written by students and for all. 

Ramify coverRamify is edited by Braniff graduate students; Braniff faculty members provide oversight in order to maintain a high standard of scholarship. Each issue highlights several essays from Braniff graduate students, and also includes an essay from an 'outside scholar' and one from a University of Dallas faculty member. In order to foster scholarly work in the language arts, Ramify also publishes artistic translations of literary works.

While focused on great works within the Western tradition, Ramify remains engaged with the broader academic community. And, while respectful of our tradition, our outlook is exploratory, interpretive, and broad. For further information, including subscription and submission information, please visit our website at www.ramify.org or email our editors at editors@ramify.org.

How to Build a Shortwave Radio

As you know if you’ve read even some of our first UD Reads book, "All the Light We Cannot See," it’s possible to build a radio from random, scavenged parts, as long as you can find the necessary random, scavenged parts, as Werner does in the book.
