The Annenberg School has partnered with The Contours Collaborations on Border Crossings in Art and Humanities on the launch of the flagship issue of its journal slated for Spring 2021. Contours Collaborations is supported by the SSHRC Canada Research Chair Program (Robert Barsky, CRC: Law, Narrative and Border Crossing), and by members of MIT’s Knowledge Futures group.

Contours invites scholars to submit proposals to develop state-of-the-art online digitized artistic exhibit and performance spaces. These fully funded spaces, tailored for each submission, will provide scholars, artists, and participants with unique ways of representing, and interacting with, artistic works pertaining to border crossing. This innovative process of creation and dissemination will be developed for online open access use by Contours Collaborations and then, consistent with the Knowledge Future’s mandate, they will be made available via open access on PubPub for future users.
