This issue of Odyssey will take you along on journeys to French Polynesia, Kyrgyzstan, Japan, and Ethiopia as we highlight the work of several UK researchers and educators far from our borders. Their projects range from helping to develop the curriculum of American Studies in Kyrgyzstan to the beef safety issue in Japan to the social dynamics of population shifts in Ethiopia. The common denominator of these projects is advancing knowledge and improving people’s lives. So take a cruise through these stories, and enjoy the trip.
