Call for Publication

Contributors are invited for the forthcoming edited
collection of essays Boundaries: Critical, Creative
and Interdisciplinary methods of Making, Breaking, and

quality of academic research being done which

is in part inspired by and, in part, a response to the
success of the conference and the wide range of
high-quality academic discussion that came from it.
