Prairie Forum

Prairie Forum is a multidisciplinary journal serving as an outlet for research relating to the Canadian Plains region.

Papers published in the journal are drawn from a wide variety of disciplines but are united through the common theme of human behaviour and nature on the Prairies. The journal’s focus is thus essentially a regional one. The Prairies have traditionally been regarded as a significant unit in the fabric of Canada, but research on this region has frequently been fragmented through being conducted on a provincial basis. Prairie Forum attempts to reduce this fragmentation by bridging both geographic and disciplinary boundaries.  We welcome articles from researchers at all academic institutions, but particularly encourage individuals from institutions on the Canadian prairies to submit their research for publication with us.

All subscriptions, correspondence and contributions should be sent to: The Editor, Prairie Forum, Canadian Plains Research Center, University of Regina, Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, S4S 0A2.  If you are submitting an article please mail three copies to the address above.
