Yosef Wosk, patron of the Graduate Liberal Studies (GLS) Journal on the site of the B.C. Review, has decided to renew his commitment to funding the journal after an initial 4-year trial period. GLS is extremely grateful to Yosef for funding the GLS Journal and his ongoing faith in the program. 

The continuation of the journal is wonderful news for students, alumni, and associates of the program who have published and been widely read thanks to the careful editorship of Richard Mackie. Not only has the journal itself created an important hub for GLS work, Richard’s efforts have in many cases led to further publishing opportunities for students, alumni, and faculty.

GLS would like take this opportunity to not only thank Yosef and Richard but also Margaret Brown, Alan Twigg, Jenny Lee, Don Shafer, James Harder, Stephen Duguid, and Gary McCarron, who were all involved in the journal’s inception or its ongoing progress. We would also like to thank all the contributors whose essays, stories, poems, and reviews make the journal so tremendously worthwhile.

The continuation of the GLS Journal means that submissions are ongoing. If you would like to publish your work, please be in touch with Richard at

As an endowment-funded program, GLS owes its lifeblood to the support and generosity of its donors. In anticipation of the completion of our donor recognition page later this month, we would like to thank all our major donors: Yosef Wosk, Julie Andreyev, the Babock Family, the Fellman Family, Bob Foulkes, and Stephen Duguid, as well as all those who have contributed to the Bunny Wright, Ewan Clark, and other scholarship funds over time and, most recently, during our COVID fundraising campaign. We have seen firsthand how donations to the endowment (teaching and events), lecture series funding, publication, and scholarship support all create opportunities, accomplishments, and genuine moments of transformation on a daily basis.
