May 1st, 2014


We are pleased to announce the call for papers for the newly re-launched peer reviewed anthropological graduate student journal, Nexus. For more than thirty years, Nexus has served as Canada's premier graduate student journal of anthropology. The journal is freely available online.

The editorial staff is seeking submissions from all four subfields at any level of graduate or upper level undergraduate work to be considered for publication in the upcoming issue. Due to upcoming changes in our website, submission of manuscripts will be done entirely through email at nexusjournal@gmail.com, instead of the website. Submission guidelines and instructions are also available. Please put ‘submission 2014’ in the subject line of your email and attach the submission form , available on the website, along with your manuscript. Please contact us with any questions.

We are also looking for peer-reviewers at this time. If you are interested in being a reviewer for Nexus please email us at the above address and put ‘reviewer’ in the subject line of your email.

We look forward to continuing this long tradition of showcasing Canadian academic excellence.

Your editorial staff,

Alyson Holland, Laura Lockau, Lelia Watamaniuk & Madeleine Mant

Current Issue: Volume 21, Issue 1 (2009)

Thank you for your interest in the 21st volume of NEXUS, published July 2009. This volume is the product of over a year of hard work on the part of the editorial board and the authors, and we are very pleased to finally share it with you. We thank everyone who submitted an article for our consideration, and all the copy editors and anonymous reviewers who generously volunteered their time to the academic improvement of this journal. As always, we extend our thanks as well to the Department of Anthropology, the Faculty of Social Sciences, and the School of Graduate Studies at McMaster University for their continuing support of this journal.

With Volume 21, we are pleased to announce the premiere of ONLINE availability of every NEXUS volume. This includes free access to all past volumes (since 1980 onwards), which were previously only available in print content to subscribers. With our new easy-to-access online format, we hope to be able to reach even more readers across Canada and beyond. We feel that this flexible medium of publication is well-suited to the ever-evolving world of anthropological expression, and encourage the future submission of alternative mediums such as video that can be easily accessed online.
