Junctures: The Journal for Thematic Dialogue
Junctures: The Journal for Thematic Dialogue is a multidisciplinary academic journal founded by
Otago Polytechnic Te Kura Matatini ki Otago in 2003 as a forum for trans-disciplinary discussion,
analysis, and critique.
Junctures encourages discussion across boundaries, whether these are disciplinary, geographic,cultural, social or economic. Junctures embraces the long established fields of the humanities, arts, science, law, medicine and philosophy, as well as engaging with the challenges of more recent disciplinary and interdisciplinary fields. Each issue of Junctures is organised as a site of encounter around a theme. This allows us to highlight the resonances and disturbances of dialogue. With New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region as a backdrop, but not its only stage, Junctures seeks to address the matters which concern us all as we negotiate the contemporary environment. Junctures is fully blind peer reviewed and catalogued on the Ulrichs Periodicals OneSearch directory, EBSCO Academic Search, and Thomson Reuters databases: Academic OneFile, Literature Resource Center and Expanded Academic.
