We are 10 days away from the release of the 10th anniversary issue of the Undercurrent! To celebrate this milestone, we thought we’d do a blog series: 10 Posts in 10 Days. Today, we kick off the series by looking back at what was going on in the world when the Undercurrent was created! Comment below if you think of anything else that happened in 2004.
The Undercurrent has always been an ethereal organization. No one is really sure how it’s worked throughout its 10 years, just that it has always kept on going with a remote team of volunteers from across Canada. Somehow, papers were mysteriously submitted, an editorial process occurred, new volunteer staff came and went, and digital issues were published. The folklore even tells of a time when The Undercurrent gathered IDS students together from far and wide for a conference known as InSight.
