Call for Papers : Issue 22 (2021-2022) Food deadline extended to 30 April, 2022

Junctures: The Journal of Thematic Dialogue invites submissions on the theme “food.” 

Nau mai e ka hua e hora nei.
Here are the fruits laid out before us.

This is an opening line of a karakia, a Māori incantation that acknowledges food, the places it comes from and the role it plays in communities.

It reminds us implicitly that food is both necessary for survival as well as being culturally mediated. This issue of Junctures invites contributions that reflect on the centrality of food in culture and society from both these positions. Deliberately broad in scope, we call for a range of submissions that, taken collectively, can propose a hermeneutics as well as an axiology of food that resonates across the hard sciences, humanities, visual culture, social sciences, law, education, and medicine.

Junctures invites submissions from authors on the theme of food, whether from the hard sciences, humanities, visual, social sciences, law, education or medicine. Junctures encourages discussion across boundaries, whether these are disciplinary, geographic, cultural, social or economic. Junctures accepts narratives, commentaries and interventions that sit outside academia.

Published: Issue 21 (2020) Water

2019-11-27

Junctures: The Journal of Thematic Dialogue invites submissions on the theme “water.” Water is more than a precious commodity that requires careful management to maintain its quality, quantity and accessibility. We are all charged with its preservation and protection for the benefit and survival of ourselves and all living beings we share this planet with. The world’s freshwater resources are increasingly the subject of conflict between parties with vested interests and those advocating for biodiversity and protection of shrinking habitats.

Welcome to Junctures

2009-04-02

Junctures is a multi-disciplinary academic journal which provides a forum for trans-disciplinary discussion, analysis and critique.  Junctures aims to engage discussion across boundaries, whether these are disciplinary, geographic, cultural, social or economic. Each issue of Junctures is organised as a site of encounter around a one word theme. This allows us to highlight the resonances and disturbances of dialogue. With New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region as a backdrop, but not its only stage, Junctures seeks to address the matters which concern us all as we negotiate the contemporary environment.

Junctures is fully double-blind peer reviewed by an international team of editorial advisors; and currently catalogued on the Ulrichs Periodicals directory, Thomson Reuters, and in the EBSCO databases; Academic OneFile, Literature Resource Center and Expanded Academic.
