This issue of Nebula draws together a diversity of subjects and approaches to academic writing. Its heterogeneity provides the opportunity to map some unexpected intersections, and to explore a variegated terrain. Momin Rahman’s “In Search of My Mother’s Garden” offers the term ‘intersectionality’ as a way of charting the copresent cartographies of space and identity. It’s a term that might be used as a key for this issue – from the spatial intersections mapped on the skin, which occupy Ahmad M.S. Abu Baker’s reading of The English Patient and Isam M. Shihada’s figuration of The Story of Zahra, to the philosophical crossroads traversed by Gerry Coulter. And there are thematic intersections between otherwise dislocated landscapes; Mike Kent’s exploration of the “digital divide”, for example, offers an intriguing point at which to enter the discussion of educational resource allocation in Nigeria. The collection for this issue is arranged with such intersections in mind, but they are of course guided by my own explorations. I invite you to explore this diverse topography for yourself and I hope you find it as enjoyable a space as I have.
