Inaugural Issue of the Journal of Social and Ecological Boundaries
The Journal of Social and Ecological Boundaries provides a forum for interdisciplinary examinations of the impacts of boundaries, borders, and demarcations of time and space. To this end, the journal especially encourages collaborative work whose approach inspires reflection on-â€"and a challenge to-â€"the conventional boundaries between academic disciplines. A project of the College of Arts and Sciences at Texas A&M International University in Laredo, JSEB aims to highlight the connections between arts and sciences in the context of discussions about the boundaries, real or imagined, geographical or geological (or both), between places, cultures, and disciplines.
For its first issue, JSEB requests submissions that engage the themes of the journal's mission in the context of discussions pertaining to culture or cultural studies. Along these lines, this edition of JSEB seeks to provide a forum for the discussion of a number issues of importance across disciplines in the humanities and sciences. Some possible areas include (but are by no means limited to):
Â· disciplinary domain and cultural studies;
Â· scientific approaches or contributions to cultural studies;
Â· approaches to cultural studies in border regions;
Â· cultural studies and cultural difference; and,
Â· the politics of cultural studies.
Submissions should be electronic, sent as an e-mail attachment in either OpenOffice.org format (.sxw) or Microsoft Word format (.doc), to the managing editor, Dan Mott, at dmott_at_tamiu.edu. Style should conform to APA guidelines.
