Student Associations

Getting involved with your program’s student association is a great way to connect with like-minded peers. Through guest lectures, seminars, career workshops and social events, you’ll get to network and enrich your education experience.

Culture: An Undergrad Journal

Culture is a peer-reviewed undergraduate humanities/interdisciplinary journal created by the Humanities Student Association and the humanities department at York.

We welcome any papers from the humanities disciplines (humanities, Black studies, Indigenous studies, gender & sexuality studies, philosophy, history, English, etc.) regarding culture in its many forms. Selected papers will be published in print and online. We define culture to include anything from Marxist critiques of celebrity, to comparative analysis of modern & postmodern art, to the critical analysis of life experiences. If it relates to a social sphere of interaction, we deem it relevant!

If you are interested in joining us as an editor or have any questions,
