Fiction Writing Contest: A call for submissions
As part of our 10-year celebration in 2020, the Journal of Integrated Studies is holding a ﬁction-writing contest for Athabasca University’s graduate students and MAIS alumni. As our journal focuses on publications that are interdisciplinary, we invite ﬁction submissions that are inspired by this theme and include a reﬂection on why the ﬁction submitted is indeed interdisciplinary.
Our deﬁnition of interdisciplinary is: an approach to knowledge creation, learning, and integration whereby we work with different strands, viewpoints, methods, or theories from a variety of ﬁelds and traditions in order to understand or construct understandings of phenomena in a way that respects and acknowledges complexity, both externally and within ourselves.
Along with your submission, please include a reﬂection on the interdisciplinary nature of ﬁction.
