Call for Papers: Spring 2018

The myriad of kyriarchal issues—that is, multiple intertwined systems of oppression—current in our political and community discourses have existed in both Canada and the United States prior to the recent US presidential election. It appears that the sociopolitical ideologies, and the groups that support and promote them, have become publicly emboldened as a result of the actions of conservative politicians worldwide. This is clearly evident in the purposeful and violent actions of neo-Nazi protestors in Charlottesville, Virginia, but the same vitriol towards minorities has publicly and openly occurred in Canada recently as well. Proud Boys serving in the Canadian military who disrupted a Mi’kmaq ceremony in Halifax faced no repercussions, and the Worldwide Coalition Against Islam, as well as and the Soldiers of Odin (among others), have organized anti-immigrant protests throughout the country. But now is not the time to despair: now is the time to fight back, to resist.
