The tournament will be primarily written by current members of the UCSD quiz bowl club, with significant help from a few others. If you would like to assist in the production of this tournament as a writer or potential editor, please contact me at email@example.com.
For now, this will be a closed collegiate tournament with a single online open mirror prior to all physical mirrors, just like with the last couple of Early Fall Tournaments. Any requests to bend eligibility rules should go through the host site, who should notify me.
The tentative distribution will look like this (subject to change):
-> 1/1 Long-Form Fiction
-> 1/1 Non-Epic Poetry
-> 0.5/0.5 Drama
-> 0.5/0.5 Short-Form Fiction (blurred lines such as novels vs novellas will probably end up in long-form fiction)
-> 1/1 "Miscellaneous" (nonfiction, literary criticism, epic poetry, other literary questions, mixed, or more drama/short fiction)
-> 1/1 United States
-> 1/1 Continental Europe
-> 1/1 Non-European, Non-Commonwealth ("World")
-> 1/1 Classics, Commonwealth, and Other
Historiography will appear in any of the 4 history categories as the editors see fit, either as clues or as answers in tossups/bonuses.
-> 1/1 Biology
-> 1/1 Chemistry
-> 1/1 Physics
-> 0.5/0.5 Math
-> 0.5/0.5 Other Science
-> 1/1 Painting and Sculpture
-> 1/1 Music
-> 1/1 "Other" Art
-> 1/1 Religion (expansive)
-> 1/1 Mythology (inc. questions about mythography/folktales)
-> 1/1 Philosophy (will reflect a "heterodox" approach, whatever that means)
-> 1/1 Social Science (will reflect a "heterodox" approach, whatever that means)
1/1 Geography/Misc. (tiny amount of trash, but mostly other academic/general knowledge)
