Although chiefly known as a poet and author, Tagore had a deep interest in nature and the environment. In his work as an educator and rural reformer he believed in ‘thinking globally and acting locally’. As such, this issue of Gitanjali and Beyond seeks new perspectives on the environment in its local, global and transnational contexts. W are soliciting manuscripts, creative writing and art to be featured in our next issue on ‘Tagore and the Environment’.

Vol 1 No 1 (2016): Tagore and Spirituality

The Issue “Tagore and Spirituality" brings together articles and creative contributions about Tagore’s spirituality and its expression in socio-cultural, educational, ecological and artistic realms.

The award of the Nobel Prize for his book Gitanjali made Tagore internationally known and prompted his journeys across continents to share his poetry, give lectures, hold exhibitions of his paintings and build friendships. In Gitanjali and Beyond, we explore the connections he established and the impact he had around the world. Gitanjali & Beyond celebrates all of Tagore's manisided works and ideas – as a painter, an educationist, a composer, a rural reconstructionist, an environmentalist, a philosopher and as a writer of many genres. Gitanjali & Beyond also goes beyond academic discourses on Tagore’s ideas and works. It includes creative writing in the form of poetry, short fiction and creative non-fiction, as a tribute to Tagore as the creative writer. It also has a section for contributions on Fine Arts. Gitanjali & Beyond is an online open-access journal, published by the Scottish Centre of Tagore Studies (ScoTs), which is based at Edinburgh Napier University. Gitanjali & Beyond offers the quality of a scholarly and creative journal combined with the speed, functionality and accessibility of the web. It publishes peer-reviewed state-of-the-field articles, creative writing, art and book reviews on a continuous basis.
