On the brink of the twenty-first century it has become clear that our global and cultural future will depend on our increasing capacity and willingness to live with difference, heterogeneity and flux. Intensifying cross-border flows of people, money, images, ideas and objects are reconfiguring long-established communities (especially those related to the geopolitical entity of the nation), at some points eroding, at other points redefining their identities and boundaries. This international journal will focus on the changing cultural identities, social relations and political conflicts in an increasingly transnational, plural and diverse intercommunal world. The journal engages actively with these shifts and transformations as they pertain to the troubled rise of Asian capitalism and to the emergence of supra-national configurations such as the Asia Pacific and ëthe new Europeí, the politicisation of new forms of racial, ethnic and religious difference in different parts of the world, and the role of new communication and other technologies in forging cosmopolitan and deterritorialised identities and communities, on the one hand, and generating nostalgic fundamentalisms on the other. This journal takes interdisciplinarity seriously and welcomes contributions from a wide range of disciplines including anthropology and sociology, political economy, history, geography, critical psychology, media and communication studies, art and literary studies, postcolonial studies and cultural studies. Discontinued in 2001.
