Humanity is pleased to publish a selection of papers that were presented for the 2016 NewMac conference, themed "Constellations". 

Constellations invited rising stars in postgraduate research to consider where have we come from and where are we going? How can we best connect and build bridges between researchers and across theoretically diverse disciplines?

Scholars of the humanities operate within and across very broad arenas— CONSTELLATIONS—that at first glance may seem unconnected. We argue  that there is much to gain from interdisciplinary mobility and debate.

The papers published in this issue of Humanity are a selection of the important works produced for the NewMac conference, and we hope that you all find them thought-provoking, innovative, and brilliant - like the constellations above.

Happy reading!
