Proposals are invited for papers ruminating on aspects of digestion in early modern literature, culture, and medicine. Participants might consider, for example, the relationship between literal and figurative digestion in the context of theories about the nexus of body and language more generally; the relationship between digestion and cognition or emotion; the ideological underpinnings of discourses of specific digestive organs or aspects of digestion like assimilation, excretion, indigestion, or vomiting; or the significance of specific kinds of digestion, like anthropophagy, to identity. Papers might also explore medical texts by writers like Sanctorius, Paracelsus, or Van Helmont.
The mission of the Journal is to present wide-ranging, multi-disciplinary positions on multimedia learning and the assessment of multimedia learning content to help increase its effectiveness, to help increase the attention of learners and to help enhance the acquisition of knowledge through visual content.
Multimedia learning now reaches across all disciplines and touches all learners, from patients needing to learn better post-operative recovery skills, to technicians needing to learn better installation skills for critical infrastructure, to students in public and private schools needing to learn from compositions that optimize attention.
