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.

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! Still interested in submitting? We encourage you to submit your work and it will be considered for the second issue, which we hope to be ready for fall 2017.
