Over the past two weeks, two research units at the University of Oxford have published free online anthologies that may be of interest to readers of the Border Criminologies blog.
During the week of 15 April 2014, the Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS) published Migration: A COMPAS Anthology as part of the Centre’s 10th birthday celebrations. Edited by Bridget Anderson and Michael Keith, the anthology brings together contributions from COMPAS scholars, COMPAS research collaborators, and others. The intent of the collection, as Bridget and Michael explain, is to inform and provoke. As such, the contributions are diverse, including poetry, theory, photography, and statistics, in order to stimulate discussions and reflections on and about migration.
Migration: A COMPAS Anthology is available free online. Readers can download the entire volume or individual contributions. The anthology website provides an interactive space to explore the collection.
On 23 April 2014, the Oxford Human Rights Hub (OxHRH), based in the Faculty of Law, launched a new e-publication, edited by Laura Hilly and Claire Overman, called Global Perspectives on Human Rights: The Oxford Human Rights Hub Blog, 2012-2013. This anthology includes the best posts from the first 18 months of the OxHRH Blog. The editors have thematically organised these posts into an e-book format, with the goal that the anthology becomes a resource for researchers, practitioners, or policy-makers.
Global Perspectives on Human Rights is available to read and explore online. Although intended as an e-resource, readers can download specific chapters.
