Territorial acknowledgement

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes 6 miles on each side of the Grand River.

7. Join the discussion: Sankofa Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies

This journal was conceived by UWaterloo's Dr. Christopher Stuart Taylor to support his fourth-year course, "B[l]ack to the Future: Black Settlements in Canada for the 2020s and Beyond" in May 2021.

From the journal's "About" page:

"The Sankofa Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies is a peer-reviewed journal that supports the amplification of subaltern and marginalized voices at the University of Waterloo. The journal encourages submissions from all University of Waterloo communities (staff, faculty, undergraduate, and graduate students) from across all faculties and disciplines. Sankofa encourages us to 'look back' to 'move forward' by challenging traditional and eurocentric ideals of scholarship. We seek interdisciplinary works (original content that is rooted with-in and with-out the academe) that are rooted in praxis.

...  Positive journal submission process: we take great care to support, and not denigrate or discourage, the academic journal submission process. Sankofa is meant to be a gateway for other publishing opportunities."
