Graduate Conference

Every year graduate students at the School of Communication organize the Critical Studies Conference presenting a wide range of thought-provoking and rigorous panel discussions on themes ranging from the geopolitics of colonialism, media representation to surveillance and media & data-driven activism, healthcare issues. The conference marks the school's long-standing tradition to bring graduate scholars together to discuss and share their work. 

For those interested in becoming a speaker for the next upcoming conference, the updates will be coming in the beginning of 2018. Keep an eye on our website and social media news! 

2017 Conference Program


Stream: Culture/Politics/Technology is an open-access, peer-reviewed graduate e-journal for students in communication studies and cognate fields encompassing three over-overlapping ‘streams’ of concentration: culture, politics, and technology. It is published by the Communication Graduate Caucus at Simon Fraser University. Papers are blind reviewed by graduate students, making Stream a unique contribution to the flourishing and productive field of communication in Canada. In employing open-source software and Creative Commons licensing, Stream is exceptional in the field of academic publishing and contributes to the public dissemination and sharing of knowledge. We hope that this initiative will become a space for graduate students to publish new work and expand upon new ideas, contributing to a thriving intellectual culture.
