The electronic journal entitled “Culture-Borders-Gender/Studies” is an annual periodical publication of the Culture, Borders and Gender Laboratory of the Department of Balkan, Slavic and Oriental Studies at the University of Macedonia, Thessaloniki, Greece.
The journal aspires to become a forum for interdisciplinary dialogue between epistemological traditions and thematic fields, such as Sociocultural Anthropology, Gender Studies, Border Studies, Cultural Studies (literature, art, cinema and digital technologies), and Minority, Migration and Refugee Studies.
The journal hosts studies in Greek and English, which are subject to a peer review process and operate as an open-access publication supported by the library of the University of Macedonia. This choice explicitly substantiates the fundamental priority of the Culture, Borders and Gender Laboratory, which is disseminating the produced scientific knowledge in the public sphere. This political position promotes creating and sharing knowledge as a project of academic commitment and social responsibility towards the community. Our objective is to provide critical knowledge about Area Studies, an alternative understanding of social reality and encourage the potential of co-handling it.
