In early 2015, the Alternautas family grew bigger. With a team of eight-member Editorial Board and thirteen Commissioning Editors, Alternautas has strengthened its community, organising several panels at international conferences, as well as maintaining a vibrant online community.

The compilation invites our readers to reflect on development from a range of academic landscapes.Read More
