Essay proposals are invited for a volume in the MLA Options for Teaching series entitled Teaching Postcolonial Environmental Literature and Media, to be edited by Cajetan Iheka. In the past decade, critical readings of texts from formerly colonized societies have increasingly combined postcolonial and ecocritical perspectives. The rising interest in postcolonial ecocriticism is reflected in curricular offerings, which include entire courses or sections of courses devoted to novels, stories, plays, films, and other media focused on environmental issues in postcolonial settings. The proposed volume sets out to establish the scholarship on the teaching of postcolonial ecocriticism.
Both Jacques Lacan and Michel Foucault took the body as an object of critical inquiry but explored it in divergent ways. This collection of essays, under advance contract with McFarland and Company, will bring together scholars working from Lacanian and Foucaultian perspectives to interrogate the body. Collectively, the papers selected for this volume will aspire to answer, among others, the following questions: how do Lacan and Foucault approach the body, and what new forms of subjectivity emerge when we pay attention to the body? What are we allowed to do to or with our bodies, and what are we allowed to ask others to do to or with our bodies?

As AI is becoming more pervasive in our lives, its impact on society is more significant, raising ethical concerns and challenges regarding issues such as value alignment, safety and security, data handling and bias, regulations, accountability, transparency, privacy, and workforce displacement. Only a multidisciplinary effort can find the best ways to address these concerns, including experts from disciplines such as ethics, philosophy, economics, sociology, psychology, law, history, and political science. In order to address these issues in a scientific context, AAAI and ACM have joined forces to start a new conference, the AAAI/ACM Conference on AI, Ethics, and Society.
Many novelists in various national literatures touched upon the theme of an emancipated woman in the long nineteenth century. Imagination, as it is believed, has no borders and is dialogical in its nature. Different voices of great emancipationist writers merged into one influential symphony liberating and awakening consciousness of slaves—males and females. If writers did not support directly or sympathized with the image of an emancipated woman, they did reflect on her place in society and her belonging. World literature allows us to take a closer look at the imagined and real women's lives, at their biographies and reminiscent writing.
