We also make a special foray into the study of gender and language(see table of contents of papers and book and film reviews section below). We are also calling for papers for the tenth issue of _Intersections_ due for publication in May 2004 (deadline 15 March 2004). Issue Ten will mainly focus on papers around the theme of 'Indonesia: Histories and Life Stories'. Besides academic papers, introduced edited interviews and relevant short fiction pieces will be considered. We will, of course, also consider papers outside of the main theme for each issue. Please refer to the call for papers page of the journal for submission details and further planned issues, or contact the editors.
