Call for Papers

Issue theme: Dynamic Pacific

The Pacific Dynamics: Journal of Interdisciplinary Research invites articles for its first issue which is due to be published in June 2017. The journal publishes two types of articles—full-length pieces (6,000-7,000 words) and short critical essays (2,000-3,000 words). The first issue is based on the general theme, “dynamic Pacific,” meant to reflect the momentum, synergy and direction of complex and potentially volatile changes in the Pacific today. This incorporates a range of issues including indigenous knowledge and cultural transformation, historical ruptures, new and transformative ideas, social marginalization, climate change, conflict and restoration, changing geopolitics, educational innovation, shifting security approaches, regime change, economic reforms, changing literary and intellectual discourses, social change and resistance, challenges of development and any other topic which revolves around and  expresses the notion of “dynamic.” This is an opportunity to engage in some critical discussions on a diverse range of emerging issues which are reshaping contemporary Pacific societies.

Articles must be in word format and must be sent to Marcus Boomen (marcus.boomen@pg.canterbury.ac.nz). For details of manuscript preparation, submission and style manual, please refer to Instructions for Contributors.

The deadline for manuscript submissions is March 10, 2017.
