                        Call for Papers: 'complex'
                    Edited by Jayde Cahir & Sarah James

Sydney's City Rail has recently launched an advertising campaign with the
slogan of "untangling our complex rail network". City Rail position
Sydney's rail network as a complex system. Describing something as
'complex' can be the answer to many questions. Rather than positioning
'complex' as the end result we would like to explore it as a starting
point. What is complex? How is it complex? Why is it complex?

In socio-cultural terms 'complex' is used to describe transnational
citizenship, communities, identities, multiple belongings, overlapping
geographies and competing histories. Subsequently, if we think of 'complex'
as something intricate, involved, complicated, dynamic, multi-dimensional,
consisting of more than one element or various interconnected systems,
'complex' can therefore be applied to any area of research or topics of
interest. We invite you to contribute to this discourse on 'complex' within
popular and academic cultures by submitting papers of 3,000 words in
length to the editors at

Article deadline:     4 May 2007
