Call for Papers. Junctures: The Journal for Thematic Dialogue, # 22: "multi-"

2022-03-06

As the world around us becomes increasingly complex and as the tensions between technological advancement and environmental degradation increase, it is clear that solutions for a sustainable future are only going to be found through collaborative approaches that are open to paradigms and knowledge systems that are other than those that have sustained the status quo. This issue of Junctures invites contributions that reflect on how the notion of ‘multi-’ can prompt the ability to perceive the world in new ways, to reveal new truths that are hidden in plain sight, to make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena, and to generate solutions. It also offers an opportunity for contributions that reflect on the notion of the ‘multiple’ in creative and other contexts, and its implicit democratising and enabling impulses.
For more information or submissions please contact the editors:

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.
