Vol. 6 Update and Vol. 7 Call for Submissions


Hi everyone,

Allow me to introduce myself: my name is Angèle Chenard (she/her) and I am the incumbent Journal Manager for INvoke and VP Mentorship and Academic Journal for SUSA. I’m in my fourth year of the Honors Sociology program and am very excited to be taking on this position.

As some of you already know, vol. 6 of INVOKE was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal for this semester is to finish up the great work that Freya Hammond-Thrasher, the previous journal manager, and all the peer reviewers have done and publish this volume in December 2020. INvoke will not be accepting any new or additional submissions for this volume; the manuscripts being published are from the Winter 2020 call for submissions.

As for vol. 7, submissions will open today, November 15, 2020. This earlier date is to hopefully give everyone ample time, myself included, to peer review, edit and publish this next volume. The deadline will be to follow, but expect it to be some time in March. Make sure when you’re submitting to check the Submissions Page under the About section of the INvoke site for a checklist and tips for your manuscripts.

I also wanted to promote that SUSA has started a discord for sociology students! Hopefully some of you will consider joining and using it as a way to connect with others in the department despite the pandemic. Use this link to join: https://discord.gg/Wdt2zyx.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or queries you might have at achenard@ualberta.ca

Stay safe everyone,
