New journal on island cultures

Shima is a peer-refereed journal that is published twice a year in open access online form and as an annual print compendium.

The cultures referred to in the journal’s subtitle refer not only to arts, crafts, language, folklore, media etc. but also aspects of local or inter-local tourism, development, politics and/or religion and how these relate to island and maritime environments and ecologies.

Shima publishes:

–Theoretical and/or comparative studies of island cultures (and/or diasporic island communities)
–Case studies of island cultures
–Accounts of collaborative research and development projects in island cultures
–Analyses of fictional representations of islands and ‘islandness’
