A Brief Theme Note:
In the contemporary globalised socio-political milieu, borders of various manifestations have become both porous and solid simultaneously. The unprecedented increase in multi-polar flow of people, ideas, and technology coexists and quarrels with fundamentalisms of various hues. Such a situation is very complex and challenging as far as the broad disciplines of Humanities and Social Sciences are concerned. The January 2014 issue of Humanities Circle initiates an interdisciplinary debate on this theme and invites submissions from scholars/activists on various manifestations of Politics of Mobility & Identity, cutting across national, religious, ideological, racial, gender, class, caste and disciplinary boundaries.
