The Scattered Pelican, the graduate journal of Comparative Literature at Western University, is excited to share the Call for Papers for its forthcoming Spring issue, entitled "Fight OR Flight":

Cannon's work provided us with insight into how animals—humans included—employ physiological mechanisms to deal with stressful encounters, arguably with the end to maintain homeostasis in both the bodily and environmental systems.
