Confluence is the official open-access journal of SFU's International Studies Department, published by the International Studies Student Association. It focuses on the views and opinions of IS students, as they explore regional, national and international topics related to race, class, environment, power, politics and more. It also explores the field of international studies, including experiences in the field, studies abroad, traveling, jobs and co-ops. Stay tuned for the first issue, coming Fall 2019. 

Vol 1 No 1 (2019)

Last published in 2014, Confluence's latest re-imagining focuses on the lives and thoughts of International Studies students at SFU. From Michelle Gomez's Exploitation Abroad: The Canadian Mining Industry in Mexico, to Genver Quirino's Obstacles to Political Democratization for the Chinese Middle Class, this journal explores the views and opinions of a broad range of students, as they explore national and international topics related to race, class, environment, power, politics and more. As demonstrated through Alexandra Senchnya's piece Political Life in France, Confluence also explores the field of international studies, including experiences in the field, studies abroad, traveling, jobs and co-ops.
