An online and open access journal, ‘Pacific Dynamics: Journal of Interdisciplinary Research’, invites articles for its first issue which is due to be published in June 2017.
It is published by the Macmillan Brown Centre for Pacific Studies with the support of Digital Humanities, University of Canterbury, New Zealand.
Questioning dominant ideas and transcending the traditional boundaries of formal disciplines, while maintaining one’s core area of expertise, can be enriching and reflective of the complexity of the contemporary world.
The journal attempts to respond to the need for critical, open and interdisciplinary approach to research. The journal aims to promote rigorous debates on theoretical discourses, applied knowledge and policy issues regarding the Pacific Islands, including New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific Rim using multiple prisms.
Articles are accepted from diverse areas of study including gender studies, indigenous studies, conflict-peace-security studies, minority studies, politics, international relations, sociology, anthropology, cultural studies, education, philosophy, literature, development studies, economics, marine studies, environmental studies and others not mentioned here.
The deadline for submission of the manuscript is March 31, 2017.
Two types of articles will be published:
1. full-length articles (6,000-7,000 words)
2. short critical essays (2,000-3,000 words).
Articles must be in word format. Please send to Emma Puloka (email@example.com).
