Students from the Wilfrid Laurier University Faculty of Arts, with the support of CICDA: The Faculty of Arts Student Society, are publishing an undergraduate academic journal. Carried in both print and online format, the Laurier Undergraduate Journal of the Arts demonstrates the very best talent our student body has to offer in our measured opinions and our informative expertise. We accept papers from all social sciences, humanities, and liberal arts disciplines.
See the Aims and Scope for a complete coverage of the journal.
Current Volume: Volume 3 (2016)
LUJA’s third edition is our biggest ever, with paper topics ranging from college football to post-WWII German cinema. How then can you condense the incredible scope of Laurier Arts undergraduate research into one succinct introduction? Well, you start with the people. With the reviewers and editors, board members and readers. But most of all, you start with the authors, whose brilliant research and insightful perspectives form the bedrock of our shared endeavour. We would also like to thank the Arts Undergraduate Society and the Dean of Arts Office, whose support makes the whole process possible. We received nearly two hundred submissions this year, and after a rigorous, double-blind selection process, we whittled that number down to just eight. These eight papers attest not only to the intelligence of their authors but to the astounding quality of undergraduate scholarship in Canada today.
