Transformations: Region, Culture, Society
Transformations is a new, fully refereed electronic journal about social and cultural change. What makes us different is the determinedly regional perspective we bring to debates that are all too often skewed towards the metropolitan centres. A region may sometimes be as broad as the Asia Pacific, at other times as small as a country town in Central Queensland or midwest USA. Metropolitan areas have their regions too. The point is, we believe that in a globalising world our focus on region is also our strength. In an era of accelerating concentration and increasingly unequal distribution of economic, social, cultural and informational resources, the region has become an important site of interaction and interconnection with the globalised world. We encourage writing that explores and redefines regionality, drawing out hidden strengths and encouraging new ways of relating to the rapidly changing world. Transformations will publish writing that seeks to identify, describe, explore and critique the manifold processes of change at work in specific regional sites, texts, discourses and contemporary and historical contexts. Transformations welcomes contributions from the humanities, communication, media and social sciences. In particular, we seek to publish writing in cultural studies, media studies, history, visual and film studies, literary studies, anthropology, postcolonial writing, feminist studies, and any other disciplines with a contribution to make towards a progressive understanding of regionality in a globalising world.
