Trans-Humanities is an academic journal envisioning a new horizon for the humanities. The journal is published by the Ewha Institute for the Humanities (EIH) which has pursued the Humanities Korea (HK) Project since 2007 with its agenda “Trans-Humanities: Reimagining and Reconstructing the Human Sciences.” Trans-Humanities aims to transcend the limits of the existing humanities studies as rigid disciplinary research and offer instead an arena for discussion to generate new humanities discourses that can respond to the age of trans-boundary culture by supporting researches with interdisciplinary, convergent, and practical implications. The main fields of study for Trans-Humanities are as follows: studies of the transformation and reformation of human, world, and knowledge identities in a trans-boundary cultural age; interdisciplinary studies encompassing the fields of the humanities and social sciences, culture and the arts, science and technology, and more; studies of new media and convergence technology; knowledge discourse analysis and knowledge theory; comparison and translation as methodology of Trans-Humanities; studies in East Asian humanities; studies of trans-boundaries culture and experience and more.
