In today’s global landscape, the category of the “human” has assumed a principal position not simply in terms of its ontological centrality but also in relation to surrounding nonhuman worlds. At stake are questions ranging from the impact of humans on the biosphere (the Anthropocene) to their involvement in the virtual world (Knowledge Commons and Ergodicity) to their experiences of the “inner life” of things (Object-oriented ontology and Affect Theory) to the ethical politics over the Other (the terrorist, the refugee, the queer).

Council on Undergraduate Research
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, August 5, 2016

Over the past few decades, undergraduate research has moved from an elective activity that engaged a handful of faculty members and students to a central part of the undergraduate experience at many colleges and universities. The Summer 2017 CUR Quarterly will examine how undergraduate research impacts the landscape of higher education of the future. How does current practice prepare students to be the faculty members of the future? How does the centrality of inquiry-based learning affect the notion of disciplinarity? How does undergraduate research evolve to include a focus on innovation and impact---i.e., turning research findings into applications that change lives?

The aim of this journal is to create an online space for humanists to begin experimenting.  To that end, we seek authors with a broad vision, who write with clarity about the films, TV shows, Podcasts, music videos, etc. that they love. Our authors have a firm grounding in tradition, but with an eye to the future and to our students. We welcome your submissions.

CEDAW and religious texts: paving the way beyond gender oppression and misogyny.

 

The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) was adopted in 1979 by the UN General Assembly, and can be seen as an international bill of rights for women. All countries that have accepted the Convention are compelled to follow up with a series of measures that would end all forms of discrimination against women. Any country that has ratified or acceded to the Convention, is legally and morally obliged to ensure that women are not discriminated against, or oppressed.
