Emerge Magazine is an award-winning print and digital publication produced by graduating Media Studies students at the University of Guelph-Humber. Our 2014 edition was created with a single goal: to explore unique stories and trends, finding and making connections between them as we reach the middle of this transformative decade. The purpose of Emerge 2014 is to galvanize people of our generation to have discussions about the important issues that will soon be upon us; to grapple with the effects of the collective cultural decisions that society is making; and to have critical, thorough, and reasoned analysis be the basis of these discussions. With a focus on stories that we believe will continue to evolve and become the great revolutions this decade is remembered for, Emerge attempts the difficult task of spotting the waves that will ripple through history before they are fully formed.
