Reimagining the Future: Utopian Perspectives
The postgraduate journal antae is pleased to announce a special issue around the idea of alternative futures, in particular ones that can be described as “utopian”. This issue shall be published in conjunction with the Institute of Utopian Studies—for the time being, a utopian institution seeking to provide a platform for debate on ideas of radical social change and alternative concepts of living together, which aims to facilitate debate about departures from hegemonic ‘realism’: alternative futures, alternative spaces.

Soumettez vos propositions de 200-300 mots avant le 30 septembre 2016 à https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/S/16144 après avoir créé un compte d'utilisateur.

Co-editors Kimberly Jackson and Linda Belau seek proposals for a collection of scholarly essays on horror television series. Given the growing presence and cultural significance of horror television in both the United States and in other nations (particularly Japan), the editors are interested in work that engages with this rising sub-genre. We are leaving this call for essays deliberately quite general so that scholars working on any aspect of the horror television series phenomenon, from any time period or nation, might be able to contribute. We are, however, particularly interested in essays that engage theoretically and critically with horror television.

Since the discovery of oil in the 1970s, Gulf Cooperation Countries (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman) have employed a large expatriate labor force, primarily from neighboring South Asian Countries of India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Philippines. Recent studies claim that nearly 50.4% of the total population of the Gulf Cooperation Countries are expatriates. Such mass emigration has not only allowed for the rapid economic expansion of these Gulf countries, but at the same time they have produced a number of cultural and socio-economic consequences for the countries from where Gulf’s primary work forces originate.
