borderlands e-journal is an international peer-reviewed journal that takes a trans disciplinary approach to research in the humanities.  It describes itself as ‘a virtual intellectual space for new forms of thought and writing in the humanities’.

The December 2005 issue looks at Gandhi, nonviolence and modernity.  It includes an interesting article by Sean Scalmer of Macquarie University on ‘Globalising Gandhi’.  Scalmer discusses how Gandhi’s ideas and methods were spread around the world, and how they changed in the process.  He uses the British nonviolent direct action movement of the 1950s and 1960s as a case study and has carried out detailed archival research, including in the Commonweal peace archives.  This is a brilliant example of the kind of research that the PaxCat project will open up.
