The editors of boundary 2 announce that they no longer intend to publish in the standard professional areas, but instead will publish only material that identifies and analyzes the tyrannies of thought and action spreading around the world and that suggests alternatives to these emerging configurations of power. To this end, we wish to inform our readers that, until further notice, the journal will not accept unsolicited manuscripts.
