Vol. 4 No. 2 (2013): Purity

Excursions Issue 4.2: "Occupations"

Purity, on first glanced, appeared to be an almost benign word, something that perhaps wouldn’t give us enough ‘traction’ in our Call for Papers. However, once conceived, it proved a difficult term to dislodge from our conversations — something about the concept demanded our attention. As an idea it seemed to travel and expand almost limitlessly through the sciences and humanities to encompass, define and embody what Excursions is always looking out for: connections. Academics working across a wealth of disciplines aptly demonstrated that purity is a real concern in research today.
