The journal Trans-Humanities is published by the Ewha Institute for the Humanities (EIH) at Ewha Womans University, which has pursued the Humanities Korea (HK) Project since 2007 with its agenda, “Trans-Humanities: Reimagining and Reconstructing the Human Sciences.” This journal carries out research and projects to establish and spread “trans-boundary humanities.” Beginning in August 2008 in Korean, and with an English version added in August 2009, the journal is now published in three volumes annually (English issue: February 28 and October 31; Korean issue: June 30). By recording the traces of research and discussion that realize the knowledge and the spirit of “Trans-Humanities,” the journal aims to contribute toward vitalizing a humanities spirit that simultaneously communicates and creates, thereby overcoming a plethora of boundaries. Trans-Humanities therefore aims to be a journal with the following characteristics:
① transcending and crossing the boundaries of the existing disciplines in the humanities to discover and introduce studies in which multiple disciplines are interchanged or integrated, whether within or beyond the broad field of humanities.
② examining new humanities themes from a trans-boundary perspective, thereby actively introducing studies that intensify or extend the research subjects of the humanities.
③ engendering academic communication across the boundaries of institutions, cultures, geography, gender, media, and disciplines and furthermore, acting as the mediator of a knowledge basis from a glocal perspective, thereby contributing to the internationalization of domestic academic discourse and, by appointing internationally eminent scholars as editors, stimulating academic interchange domestically and internationally.
④ Forming a discursive space leading to the systemization of “trans-boundary humanities” discourse.
