Welcome to the new BC Studies blog!

Welcome to the new BC Studies blog!

January 15, 2016

This is a venue to share interesting information on a diverse array of BC related topics. We hope that this venue offers an engaging way to regularly share research and ideas across BC, as well as to a larger audience elsewhere.

There will be 5 main reoccurring themes:

“Current Findings in BC” introduces current research being done in any field applicable to the journal BC Studies. This section gives snapshots of interesting research ‘finds’ or ideas. Most posts will be (but are not limited to), contributions written by, or about, professional researchers. Updates on research progress are welcome.

“BC Voices” explores public opinions on any topic within the scope of the journal. We would welcome your suggestions about possible topics on which to invite public discussion.

Recurrent Voices of BC” offers contributions on various topics from a professional panel on a reoccurring basis. As a hybrid of “Voices” and “Findings,” this venue allows professionals to expand on a current topic of personal interest or provide a research update.

“Places of BC” highlights the ways in which particular places in BC are meaningful to individuals. Think of these as “digital postcards.” This section gives individuals a chance to share their thoughts about a place in British Columbia that has historical, experiential or personal importance for them

“BC Museums & Galleries” includes posts by or about museums in BC. This may feature a special exhibit or touch on museum issues. Museums and galleries are an important part of the cultural and historical fabric of the province. This blog theme is as an opportunity to bring the many exciting and important roles that they play in society into wider public discussion.

Contributions are warmly encouraged
