"New Formations" is a journal of cultural debate, history and theory. It brings new and challenging perspectives to bear on the categories that frame cultural analysis and political action. The journal has covered issues ranging from the seduction of perversity to questions of nationalism and post-colonialism. Contributors open up new zones of enquiry whilst drawing new charts of understanding to explain new formations in contemporary life. "New Formations" brings together in one volume both established and new writers from many walks of critical life. Past contributors have included: Parveen Adams, Nomi Bhabha, Slavoj Zizek, Susan Buck-Morss, Gillian Rose, Jacqueline Rose, Zygmunt Bauman and Christopher Norris. This issue explores the themes of postcolonialism, modernity and globalization. Contributors include: Richard Cavell on the race of space; Ien Ang and Jon Stratton on the Singapore way of multiculturalism; Michael Humphrey on civil war, identity and globalization; Albert Paolini on the place of Africa on discourses about the postcolonial, the global and the modern; Daniel Goodman on the cultural politics of postcolonialism; and John Rundell on the tensions of modernity.
