Welcome to the 10th anniversary of the TAKE Zine, issue 10.1! It has been a long time coming for the TAKE Zine and we wanted to use this opportunity to reflect back on all the great contributions received in the past decade. The original intention of the TAKE Zine was to have a creative space for Sociology graduate students, and this has grown to including submissions over the past ten years from sociology undergraduate and graduate students, staff, and submissions from graduate and undergraduate students across the University of Alberta community. A big thank you to all of those who have contributed to building and maintaining this collective outlet over the past ten years.
You are of course reading this on our new blog! Alongside of the printed TAKE Zine (download here), we will be publishing selected submissions that we received in article format on the TAKE Blog. We encourage our readers to discuss any or all TAKE Zine articles on the blog. Between printed issues, if you would like to contribute to the blog, please send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on article submissions to the TAKE Blog see our guidelines for submission.
The 10th Anniversary issue’s theme is Anonymous. Our most recent call for submissions also included a call for reviews of music, films and restaurants. Which we are excited to include for the first time in the print issue. This week we have selected articles from the print edition for the TAKE Blog concerning Surveillance and University Life, reflections on the recent tragedy in Moneta, Virgina of two On-Air Murders of Reporters, and provocative Anonymous submission concerning Why Graduate Students are The Worst.
Once again, a big thank you to our readers (old and new) and contributors. We look forward to hearing from you in new chapter for TAKE.
Your TAKE Editors
