About the Journal

Aims and Scope

Confluence is the official open-access journal of SFU’s International Studies Department, supported by the International Studies Student Association (ISSA). As an interdisciplinary study, ISSA's Confluence welcomes submissions from a variety of academic fields related to International Studies, including but not limited to International Relations, Political Science, Gender Studies, Economics and History. Confluence features the views and opinions of undergraduate and graduate students as they explore regional, national and international topics related to race, class, environment, power, politics and more. Confluence also accepts submissions focused on experiences in the field of International Studies. This includes written submissions about travel, volunteer experiences and job opportunities or co-ops. Confluence aims to connect students across departments to start important conversations relating to global issues.
