Series Editors: David Campbell and Michael J. Shapiro
Borderlines addresses international issues with the goal of revisioning global politics. It seeks to encourage a dialogue among scholars from a range of disciplines, including international relations, comparative politics, cultural studies, feminist theory, literary theory, and cultural anthropology. By analyzing specific events as well as broader theories and discourses, the series contributes larger contexts for and interdisciplinary approaches to historical and contemporary politics.
