Journal of Intercultural Studies showcases innovative scholarship about emerging cultural formations, intercultural negotiations and contemporary challenges to cultures and identities.

Journal of Intercultural Studies welcomes theoretically informed articles from diverse disciplines that contribute to the following discussions:

  • Reconceptualising notions of nationhood, citizenship and racialisation;
  • Questioning theories of diaspora, transnationalism, hybridity and 'border crossing' and their contextualised applications;
  • Exploring the contemporary sociocultural formations of ethnicity, postcolonialism and indigeneity;
  • Examining how past and contemporary key scholars can inform current thinking on cross-cultural knowledge, multiculturalism, race and cultural identity.

Journal of Intercultural Studies is an international, interdisciplinary journal that particularly encourages contributions from scholars in cultural studies, sociology, gender studies, political science, cultural geographers, urban studies, race and ethnic studies.

It is a peer-reviewed, critical scholarly publication that features articles, review essays and book reviews. Regular special issues provide stimulating, focused engagement with topical political, social and theoretical questions. The most recent/upcoming include "Virtual Ethnicities" (October 2011) "A New Era in Australian Multiculturalism" (December 2011). The editors welcome proposals for special issues that address the aims of the journal. See the special issue proposal form for more details.
