La crítica literaria se ha ocupado extensamente de diversas representaciones de fenómenos como la violencia, la guerra, las dictaduras, la represión, las revoluciones y el exilio en la literatura latinoamericana, pero se ha dejado de lado el estudio de una de las reacciones humanas que más estrecha conexión tiene con estos fenómenos: el miedo. De forma directa o indirecta, el miedo ha estado presente como tema constante en las obras literarias de diversos géneros, épocas, filiaciones estéticas, compromisos ideológicos y agendas políticas, dentro de un espacio como el de Latinoamérica, tan convulso como diverso política y socialmente.

Researcher and social activist Jean Anyon, in her investigations of social class reproduction in education, suggests "there is a ‘hidden curriculum’ in school work that has profound implication for theory—and practice—in education” (“Social Class” 67). By making class unhidden in the curriculum, students no longer feel they must "hide" themselves, and allows faculty to foster more honest conversations and writing about such issues.

What does it mean to be working class? How do languages spoken, values held, and cultural representations vary given one’s class position? Though 62% of the country is working class (Zweig), the answers to these questions are left largely unclear and unspoken. Among others, these questions will be addressed via reflection and exploration from individuals from the working class, or who many call “working-class academics.”

The book territorializes and deterritorializes. It binds together materials, technologies, and labor from far and abroad--a letter from Goa, an editor in Rome, Chinese paper, German engravers, Italian leather, English capital--only to be dispersed and reconstituted, from hand to hand, collection to collection, dismembered, reassembled, and reinvented for new audiences in new locations.

One of the features of global Shakespeare in the 21st century is the proliferation of transcultural adaptations around the world. This panel seeks to shed light on these adaptations across languages, cultures, religions, and even platforms (theatre, TV, cinema, video games, social media, and other forms of pop culture). Proposals are invited for presentations on aspects of transcultural adaptations of Shakespeare.

JLS/CONFIGURATIONS “DOUBLE ISSUE”

THE STATE OF THE UNIONS

 

What are the relations between literature, science and the arts within our field today? This special double issue marks a unique collaboration between the Journal of Literature and Science and Configurations. Across two years – 2017 in the JLS and 2018 in Configurations – we aim to enable scholars of all career-stages to debate the nature of the interdisciplinary relations of our field in short and sharp “position” papers of approximately 2000 words.
