Diversipede Student Journal

Mission Statement

Diversipede [daɪ•vər•sɪ•pid], a peer reviewed journal published by the anthropology student associations at the University of Alberta, seeks to provide a forum for students to gain their voice though the experience of academic publishing. As the name suggests, this publication is “powered by diversity,” a definition that applies not only to the content sought, but to the discipline of anthropology as a whole.

Through the act of writing and submitting a paper or reading and editing submissions, it is Diversipede’s goal to allow both undergraduate and graduate students a chance to experience the process of professional publishing firsthand. It is the desire of Diversipede to highlight the high level of scholarly ability of anthropology students, and to highlight current research interests.
