Each January, undergraduate students from Canadian and American universities are invited to present their research papers at Thompson Rivers University. Dialogues showcases papers from students who took their passion for their research one step further and put their paper through a rigorous peer review process. The conference brings meaningful and insightful conversations about the philosophy, history, and politics disciplines and solidifies their interconnectedness and relevance to our world today.

See the Aims and Scope for a complete coverage of the journal.

Thank You!

The opening issue of Dialogues would not have been possible without the support of my colleagues, TRU Librarians, the wonderful professors at TRU, and most of all, the woman who pushed this along, Dr. Annie St. John-Stark. Without her support and effort, Dialogues would not be here.

Also, a big thank you to the TRU Research Office for funding the establishment of this journal. Thank you for seeing the value of undergraduate research!

Many thanks go to:

Matthew Arkinstall, who has now moved on to his MA at the University of Alberta

Kathy Gaynor, University Librarian

Brenda Smith, PHP Subject Librarian

And last but certainly not least, once again, Dr. Annie St. John-Stark
