How to Submit

Thank you for your interest in contributing to At the Forks, a project led by Dr. Adele Perry, Director of the Centre for Human Rights Research alongside Dr. Kiera Ladner and the Mamawipawin Centre for Indigenous Governance and Community Based Research at the University of Manitoba.



At the Forks will feature accessible, open access writing that deals with the intersection of Indigenous and human rights in and around the prairies and northwestern Ontario. At the Forks welcomes contributions from scholars, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and community-based researchers and activists from across Canada. The project will include Indigenous and non-Indigenous authors but will centre Indigenous knowledge and expertise.

Articles should be between 1,000 and 5,000 words. Any reference style would work, but please be consistent. We may make editorial revisions to make the work suitable for publication. These may include revisions for the sake of consistency of style, correction of grammar or spelling, or greater readability. It is the responsibility of the author to obtain permission to use any previously published and/or copyrighted material, and to acknowledge the respective source in this submission accordingly.
