Exploring Human Experience in the North
The Northern Review is a multidisciplinary journal exploring human experience in the Circumpolar North. Published by the School of Liberal Arts, it is the only peer-reviewed journal in Canada devoted exclusively to northern issues and published north of 60. Since 1988, we have published articles covering a broad range of human issues and topics in the social sciences & humanities. The journal usually publishes two issues a year.
The editors invite research articles and book reviews relating to human experience in, and thought about, the Circumpolar North.
Contact Deanna McLeod, Managing Editor for a copy of the submission guidelines or to subscribe.
