Volume 19, issue 1: Exclusivity – Boundaries of Difference

Exclusivity: Who is on the inside? Who is on the outside? The notion of "community" while commonly talked about in celebratory terms always necessitates an Other. For Volume 19, issue 1 we are looking for papers that discuss the ideas of exclusivity, for example, but not limited to change and continuity in:

-social classes/boundaries

-diversity (or lack of) in academia
