In a society where urban life recreates otherness, dissolves geographical and social borders, creates transnational spaces and crafts new identities, how do Latinos and Hispanic immigrants of various Latin American regions living in cities in the US (re)build the local and global from inter- and cross-cultural perspectives: language, history, sense of belonging, conflict, territorializing, mobility?

Renaissance Society of America (RSA) 2019 - Toronto
Panel - Renaissance Vegetarianism
The study of early modern food has blossomed in recent years. As scholars have parsed the politics of changing dining practices, the role of recipes in intellectual history, and the growing perception of food ethics as inextricable from social identity, dietary beliefs and habits have begun to be seen as central to early modern studies. One of the most striking dietary trends that spread across Europe in this period, however, remains underexamined: the rise of vegetarianism.

CALL FOR PANELS AND PAPERS
DEADLINE FOR PAPER PROPOSALS: 15th of July 2018
Popular music has been a well-studied area during the 20th century, but this focus waned during the early part of the 21st Century, moving instead to music on the fringes. With recent academic and press interest in gender and sexuality in contemporary popular music, we aim to bring together a collection of works related to the notions of misogyny, toxic masculinity and heteronormativity in post-2000 popular music. Specifically, the purposes of this book are to:
- Address the themes of heteronormativity and gender stereotyping
- Explore misogyny, female exploitation, and the sexualisation of female artists
- Discuss the concept of toxic masculinity
The concept of sharing has become pervasive in the 21st century. We are encouraged to 'share' our digital data (e.g. facebook) and to participate in the 'sharing industry' (e.g. Airbnb). Moreover, popular self-help literature emphasizes that we should develop healthy intimate relationships through sharing or disclosing our innermost thoughts and feelings. While these are quite diverse practices, the concept of 'sharing' emphasizes a link, endowing them with a positive value. This extraordinary career of the concept 'sharing' has led sociologists such as Nicholas John to dub our contemporary time as an '‘age of sharing'. The practices subsumed under 'sharing', however, have also given rise to controversy.

To mark the 50th anniversary of the first successful manned Moon landing, we invite articles for a special issue, examining how the Moon has been depicted since 1969 in science fiction. As Marjorie Hope Nicolson showed in her classic study of Voyages to the Moon (1948), fantasies of moon flight have been an integral part of world literature since classical times. Since moon flight became a reality, how have these stories changed? From adventure series such as Space 1999 to films such as Duncan Jones’ Moon and novels such as Ian McDonald’s Luna sequence, Earth’s satellite has remained a source of fascination.
We are pleased to announce our next essay-writing competition. The award is open to all post-graduate research students and to all early career researchers (up to five years after the completion of your PhD) who have yet to find a full-time or tenured position. The prize is guaranteed publication in the next summer issue of Foundation (August 2019).
