We are a new undergraduate journal affiliated with the Robarts
Centre for Canadian Studies, aiming to publish quality research in the
social sciences and humanities about Canada. Our larger project
involves efforts to decolonize knowledge and scholarship within the
field of Canadian Studies, and we hope to publish pieces and articles
that reflect the perspectives of marginalized voices. Currently we are
seeking submissions of article abstracts from undergraduate students
and scholars at York University that reflect an interest to publish in
our inaugural Spring 2021 issue. Interested parties should please send
their abstract by October 26th to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 

These abstracts should ideally include a clear research question that
the article hopes to resolve or in some way address, at least three
scholarly texts that will be drawn on to posit the arguments to be
made, as well as ideas about the praxis considerations, or the value
and importance of the research being undertaken. Submissions
should not have names or any identifying information on them.

 

We look forward to reviewing submissions from a wide range of
disciplines that have Canada as a unit or point of analysis. We
encourage as well work that draws on essays submitted in class.
