Health Professionals, Academics, Researchers, Educators Across Borders Visit "Crossing Borders" Blog

Global Interest in Intersections of Arts and Sciences

It has only been a few short weeks since we started
our CCAHTE Journal blog "Crossing Borders" and already
we have welcomed hundreds of international visitors and
free subscribers world wide as well as cross disciplinary
professionals across Canada and the U.S. Welcome all!
Here are just a few of the countries that have recently
been represented over the last
few days;

Denmark, Brazil, United Kingdom, Abu Dhabi,
Spain, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Norway, Malta,
Kenya, Australia, France, Malasia

We also continue to welcome hundreds of visitors
across all regions of the U.S. as well as blog visitors
from Canada coast-to-coast.

Universities, hospitals, medical schools, research centres,
social service organizations the world over are actively
involved in arts related projects connected to research or
work in health, training, education and social change and many
are keenly interested in information about new work at the
intersections of the arts, humanities and sciences. It is inspiring
and encouraging for me to have an opportunity to
connect with this international community of progressive
and creative visitors, across borders.

Here are just a few of the comments we've recently received;

"I found out about the blog last weekend during a session at the International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry. The blog and journal look fabulous and I'm so glad there are venues of these types for people doing such interesting work. I'll be sure to spread the word about the blog and journal to friends and colleagues. Thanks again. - Evan

"I am undertaking my PhD at Melbourne University
in the dilemmas around working with multiple voices
amongst new and emerging culturally diverse communities,
with a focus on community arts projects. I am still
in the process of developing the methodology
and I came across your journal and it looks like
there could be some very interesting resources
that i could draw upon!
