COMPASS: The Student Anthropology Journal of Alberta

Compass aims to navigate its readers through the four exciting fields of Anthropology. Our student journal highlights the exemplary level of academic research in Anthropology at the University of Alberta and elsewhere.

Vol 1 No 1 (2017): COMPASS: The Student Anthropology Journal of Alberta

This is the first issue of the long-awaited debut of COMPASS: The Student Anthropology Journal of Alberta. This feature includes undergraduate, MA, and PhD research of students at the University of Alberta, MacEwan University, and the University of British Columbia and spans archaeological, physical anthropology, and medical anthropology-related themes.

Two of the articles in this issue stem from award-winning research that was presented at the 25th Annual Richard Frucht Memorial Lecture Series and Student Conference (2016). Simpson (2017)  was awarded the Second Place Prize for the Undergraduate Podium Presentation Category, and Bishop (2017) was awarded the Second Place Prize for the Graduate Poster Presentation Category.

We would like to thank our staff and all submissions for their hard work and dedication allowing this issue to come to fruition.

Compass is published annually as collaboration between the Association of Graduate Anthropology Students (AGAS) and the Department of Anthropology at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Formerly Diversipede, our student-run publication allows undergraduate and graduate students to share their work and ideas, creating a platform for discussion and knowledge. Submissions consist of original ongoing research, reviews of current anthropological issues, and anything related to an anthropological interest from any of the sub-fields. We welcome multi-media projects that may include audiovisual components, GIS or other 3D modelling, in addition to more traditional print materials.

Thanks to all those who submitted articles for the first issue! We had a great turnout! Check out the first issue now!

Still interested in submitting? We encourage you to submit your work and it will be considered for the second issue! Deadline: January 26, 2018, 4:00pm
