Expositions was founded in 2021 by University of Chicago students studying urban journalism with Dr. Evan Carver. In partnership with CEGU, Expositions aims to highlight environmental and urban scholarship through creative forms. Unlike a school newspaper or academic journal, Expositions seeks current profiles of dynamic issues and phenomena through a wide range of styles and genres, with a distinct focus on creativity and boldness in both prose and visual art.

Stop by the Urban Lounge to grab a copy, hear presentations from the authors, and enjoy light refreshments.
