As we head deeper into the 21st Century, what does it mean to call someone or something ‘evil’? Previously used to describe natural disasters such as the Lisbon Earthquake of 1755 or even pandemics such as the Black Death, evil is now used as a popular term by the press and social media to refer to various acts of hatred, violence, terror, brutality and senseless killing.

Freedom of Speech

Lisbon, Portugal

Freedom of speech – the right to speak out, to debate, to criticize, to disseminate information on matters of public importance – is one of the most basic of human rights. Article 19 of the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights holds that “everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression.” The constitutions and laws of countless countries strive to protect the free-speech rights of individuals and journalists. Yet the right to speak out is not absolute, and it is not enjoyed by everyone.

The Country and the City Rebooted

ACLA Seminar
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 21, 2017

In his 1973 classic, The Country and the City, Raymond Williams noted an ideological divide between the country and the city, stating: “powerful, hostile associations have also developed: on the city as a place of noise, worldliness and ambition; on the country as a place of backwardness, ignorance, limitation. A contrast between country and city, as fundamental ways of life, reaches back into classical times” (1). Williams seeks to bridge this divide by demonstrating the ways in which both country and city were bound together in a complex system of rural exploitation. Nevertheless, today the ideological divide between rural and urban is as strong as ever, as highlighted by the recent U.S. presidential election cycle.

Youth and Violence in Contemporary Literature and Media

Young adults have historically been both subject to and perpetrators of violence, regardless of social class or culture of provenience. In the 20th and 21st century, literature and media have paid special attention to this relationship, focusing particularly on how violence shapes youths who will become the "leaders of tomorrow." Different cultures assign distinct values to the threats and challenges young adults face and, likewise, demonstrate varying responses to violence against or by youths.

Almost all branches of modern science and scholarship, including humanities, can trace their existence back to at least early modern times when Latin was a common medium of European erudition. Yet, present-day researchers in individual disciplines are largely unaware of the existence of early modern Latin scholarship related to their respective fields of study.      

Visualizing Change: Graphic Arts and Literature in the Contemporary Arab World

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 1, 2018

This special issue focuses on the rise of graphic literature and arts in the Arab world as a means of expression, representation, and political resistance against ideological hegemony. We are interested in scholarly works that examine the intersectionality of the literary and artistic production created before, during, and after the Arab uprisings and the significance of the development of means of production of these works. The uprisings that began in Tunisia in December 2010 popularized the use of non-traditional and independent media for publishing. It proved that seekers of political change do not need the sponsorship of traditional media.
