Here it is! It is our pleasure to officially publish the very first issue of Contingent Horizons: The York University Student Journal of Anthropology. We would like to take this opportunity to highlight the invaluable contribution of all the individuals and groups that were involved in this endeavour, in particular, the Department of Anthropology at York University who has generously supported and published this journal.
While Contingent Horizons has been printed in a limited number of copies, the electronic version of the journal is its keystone. It is our hope that the website will offer a safe space for respectful discussion that will extend the life of the published scholarly materials and encourage debates beyond their publication. In the upcoming weeks, the articles currently available in PDF format will be published as blog entries, which will facilitate commentaries and healthy discussions.
