Dear Laidlaw Scholars, 

As the new year begins, we would like to share an exciting opportunity for publishing work related to the built environment, specifically in the areas of architecture, engineering, urban studies, and geography. 

If your Laidlaw research is within these disciplines, we would encourage you to contribute your work to the publication! We plan to circulate this publication to partner universities of the Laidlaw program to increase awareness and readership of scholars’ work. 

The digital publication will include two sections:

  1. Completed Journal Articles of no more than 4000 words
  2. Interviews with scholars about the process and challenges associated with independent research. 

This volume will be published as a special edition of Scaffold* Journal—a new academic publication run by myself and fellow students from the Daniels School of Architecture, Landscape, and Design at the University of Toronto. We hope that publishing the work of undergraduate students, alongside interviews about the process of inquiry in the built environment, will make the research and learnings of emerging scholars more accessible to other students and allow them to participate in broader academic discourses. 

If you are interested in contributing to this volume, please fill out this form by Wednesday, January 31st. ( note that by submitting your work, you will also be asked to share about the process of your research through an interview with members of the journal’s editorial team. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions related to the publication, please contact me and I’d be more than happy to speak with you.

All the best,
Emma Hwang
