UCN’s Student Journal, Muses from the North, to present at the 2019 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences
University College of the North (UCN) is pleased to support two students, along with their instructors, Drs. Ying Kong and Joseph Atoyebi, to present at the Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities, being held at the University of British Columbia from June 1st to June 7th in Vancouver, B.C. The UCN contingent will host a special panel on student publication focusing on UCN’s student journal, Muses from the North.
“Increasing student involvement in scholarship and creativity is an important outcome of UCN’s English program,” said Dr. Ying Kong, Assistant Professor of English. “In just the first year of publication, we’ve had significant student interest in writing for, editing and producing a scholarly journal, with more than 30 student writers publishing articles in Muses from the North.”
Kassidy Burden, the copy designer for Muses from the North, and Taylor Flett, the student editor, will share their experiences publishing in a student journal as part of the panel presentation, and will also present posters at the conference. Print copies of current and past issues of Muses from the North will also be available. As part of the UCN participation at the Congress, Drs. Kong and Atoyebi will present their research on “The Impact of Publication and Recognition on UCN Students’ Learning and Careers” at Congress.
“We are very proud of Muses from the North in the Faculty,” said Harvey Briggs, Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Business, and Science. “We are grateful for the financial support we’ve received from UCN and are encouraged by the enthusiastic response from students. The journal has been a very positive experience for our students and I am very pleased that Drs. Kong and Atoyebi can share this success with others at Congress.”
