BIG_Review (journal)


Link to the Journal.


In 2019, BIG launched the Borders in Globalization Review. The journal provides an open-access forum for academic and artistic explorations of the changing logics of borders in the 21st century. Our interest is advancing high-quality and original works in the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences that explore various aspects of borders in an increasingly globalized world. The journal is committed to double-blind peer review, public access, policy relevance, and cultural significance.


BIG_Review Vol. 1, No. 1 is now available online!
