We are currently seeking original essays for "Slow Down," a collection of articles written by arts and humanities scholars across disciplines, which together argue that higher education has been compromised by its uncritical acceptance of our culture's standards of productivity, busyness, and speed. Our project is inspired by the slow movement, which was made popular by Carlo Petrini's Slow Food movement and has since been adopted by many others concerned about the quality of life in a fast world.
Enough is enough! The Journal of Reproductive Justice is pulling together an anthology of works categorized as a contemporary commentary on discriminatory legislation that affects the LGBT+ community, most specifically our trans and non-binary siblings. This project, "My Body, My Bowels, My Bathroom" focuses specifically on the exclusion of noncis, nonbinary, and nonconforming folks/folx from restrooms based upon their identities, reverting to the archaic and demeaning practice of forcing people to conform to an arbitrary binary system that assigned their gender at birth.

In his 1967 "Des Espace Autres" Michel Foucault wrote that in contrast to literary and cultural criticism's previous privileging of history, periodization, and time that "The present epoch will perhaps be above all the epoch of space." In the past generation scholars working across a wide variety of the humanities including literary theory, history, philosophy, cultural studies and religious studies have confirmed Foucault's prediction.
