The Undergraduate Sociology Journal is now accepting submissions for the 2021-2022 academic year! This year the USJ is looking for all creative and academic pieces that revolve around the theme of SOLIDARITY.
Solidarity is unity. Solidarity refers to the ties that bind a collective together, emphasizing interdependence between members who share values and objectives.
The theme can pertain to solidarity in action, the absence of solidarity, the formation of solidarity, solidarity efforts, and other discourse surrounding solidarity.
Submissions are open to all UofT undergraduates, and we welcome you to submit works of all creative forms, including but not confined to research papers, op-eds, poetry, photography, creative writing, and letters.
