The international journal, Hungarian Journal of English and American Studies (HJEAS)solicits papers on “Translation, Rewriting and Adaptation” for a special issue in 2021. HJEAS is available world-wide on ProQuest and archived on JSTOR. Scholarly essays are welcome on a wide range of related topics, such as novels adapted to film, drama productions based on films, free translations of classic drama for the Anglophone stages, continuation of novels or novels rewritten for a new kind of readership (e. g., Foe by Coetzee, The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler, etc.) poetry and poetry sequences adapted for stage or performance.
We are seeking contributions from scholars in various disciplines to submit proposals for chapters to be combined into an edited collection on Shakespeare’s influences on modern day science fiction.
Shakespeare’s influence on literary genres is profound to say the least, however, for some people, the association with modernity and popular culture often blinds the reader from any connection to Shakespeare and the English Early Modern Period. Evidence from science fiction belies this position as Shakespeare in both physical and textual form is a regular fixture on the screen. A well-known example comes from the 2007 Doctor Who episode “The Shakespeare Code” where the Doctor refers to him as “the most human human there’s ever been.”
In 2018 Duke University Press reissued James Baldwin’s Little Man, Little Man: A Record of Childhood. In “A James Baldwin Book, Forgotten and Overlooked for Four Decades, Gets Another Life,” New York Times writer Alexandra Alter notes that in 1976 Little Man received lukewarm reviews: “critics didn’t know what to make of an experimental, enigmatic picture book that straddled the line between children’s and adult literature.” Alter posits that because of a changed social and political climate, Baldwin’s book will now have an easier time finding an audience.
We are delighted to invite submissions to the Journal of Bodies, Sexualities, and Masculinities. The journal brings together “theories of the body”, “critical studies of men and masculinities” and “sexuality studies.” More specifically, the journal provides a venue for research on bodies, sexualities and masculinities and all of their complexities -- temporal, medical, geographic, cultural, ethnic, legal - by welcoming submissions from the social sciences, humanities, life sciences, and health studies that are theoretically rigorous, methodologically sound, and draw on interdisciplinary approaches.

SUMMER 2020 –– NOSTALGIA
Marcel Proust closes the first volume of À la recherche du temps perdu with the assertion that ‘remembrance of a particular form is but regret for a particular moment; and houses, roads, avenues are as fugitive, alas, as the years.’ To Proust, nostalgia for the past, no matter how powerful, can only ever be a pale imitation of previous lived experience.

On May 12, 1963, Bob Dylan left the set of the Ed Sullivan Show, incensed the producers rejected his decision to “Talkin’ John Birch Paranoid Blues.” This non-circulation of his image through television provided valuable publicity and Dylan would boast of “the song they didn’t let me play on TV.” This incident stands at the beginning of an ambivalent and complicated relationship between Dylan’s persona, as expressed through his words and music, and its dissemination through screen media.

What do we want? A better world? A cleaner world? At this point, many of us might merely settle for a world that isn’t barrelling towards inevitable environmental destruction. So, what do we want? Climate Action! What does climate action look like in the academy? It looks like the expansion of digital resources and the cultivation of better disposal and recycling habits on university campuses. It also looks like the cultivation of eco-critical theory and research. Earth is our home. It is the only habitable planet for us. Unfortunately, while it shows evidence of the brilliance of humanity, the state of the Earth also represents our greed and short-sightedness.
This section of the academic journal “Sinestesieonline” is open to contributions about theatre and performing arts in all historical ages, forms and variations, in English, Italian and foreign languages. We use double blind peer review.
“Il Parlaggio” is the name created by Gabriele d’Annunzio for the amphitheatre in Vittoriale – a place of empathy, a cradle of emotions, a crossroads of cultures, a connection between antiquity and contemporaneity, an emblem of the “neverending show”.

Food: Sacrificial, Spiritual, and Secular
Many scholars have examined the ways in which nostalgia has functioned and evolved throughout history from its clinical classification as a syndrome/disease to its romantic re-classification as the pursuit of a golden age. More recent literature has attempted to identify the different subcategories of nostalgia that have emerged within modernity and the extent to which it functions as both a spatial and temporal phenomenon.
