In her still influential Fantasy and Mimesis: Responses to Reality in Western Literature (1984), Kathryn Hume defines the literary fantastic as any departure from consensus reality, believing that it holds an equally significant position in literary history as mimesis. Rather than being a recent and sometimes academically marginalized genre, fantasy, for Hume, is integral to almost all literature.

In an era rife with cultural anxieties, the role of the multicultural writer is more vital than ever, particularly when the cultural norms of those existing outside of mainstream culture are increasingly challenged, censured, or overshadowed by the biases of the majority.  Whether by documenting the disorienting experiences of immigrants seeking to establish new lives in places far from their countries of origin or the decades-long struggles of minorities to gain a firmer foothold in the societies around them, multicultural writers often serve as chroniclers of the cultures from which their characters—and they themselves—come, providing their readers with a deeper appreciation for the rich histories and traditions that shape those cultures and ideally hel

Call for submissions to a collection which critically examines programs that prominently feature children in international (i.e. non-American) television. Programs may include those targeted to children, or those programs targeted to adults but contain child characters. We invite submissions on programs from Canada, the UK, Continental Europe, Australasia, Africa, Asia, Central and South America, and the Middle East. These essays will explore how international television has been a significant conduit for the public consumption of changing ideas about children and childhood, and will connect relevant events, attitudes, or anxieties within their respective countries of origin to an analysis of children or childhood in international programs.

The concept of ‘identity’ has of late acquired much resonance inside and outside academia. Identity has become in today’s globalized world more fundamental than ever before to the endeavor of addressing theoretical and political issues relating to ‘nationality,’ ‘nation (-state) borders,’  ‘history,’ ‘ethnicity,’ and other, perhaps more urgent, issues of ethnic conflicts, immigration, and refugees. The complexity of each of these entities and the interplay of most of them point, together, to the insufficiencies apparent in those ‘fixed’ understandings of the concept of identity.
