Call for Papers PlatformJournal of Theatre and Performing Arts 11.2  Theatre and the Kitchen Food and gastronomy saturate contemporary cultural spheres. From social media’s ‘food porn’, reality television and culinary pop-ups to concept-restaurants and the internationalisation of local cuisines. Arguably, menus have recently become a privileged medium for cultural transfer and appropriation, but food has long been both the signifier and transmitter of emotion, identity, ideology, belonging and wealth.

Teaching Tone at NeMLA 2018

On Teaching Tone as Well as Content at NeMLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

In our current climate of fake news from seemingly authoritative sources, and high journalistic integrity from formerly discounted sources, it is clear that our criteria for evaluating the reliability of sources is shifting. I propose that a lack of news literacy is part of a larger literacy problem: readers need to understand tone from context and form. For as long as we have been assigning our composition or literature classes to read "A Modest Proposal" or anything else with an unreliable narrator, and as long as we have been explaining to potential book banners that a book with blatantly racist characters is not inherently racist, we language and literature instructors have been developing strategies to teach tone.

Bodies/Borders in Jewish Women’s Comics 

Edited by: Heike Bauer, Andrea Greenbaum, and Sarah Lightman

Scholarship and publications on Jewish women and comics have grown considerably over the last five years. Studies such as the Eisner Award-winning Graphic Details: Jewish Women’s Confessional Comics in Essays and Interviews (Lightman 2014), How Come Boys Get to Keep Their Noses? (Oksman 2016) and our own special issue on  “Contemporary Comics by Jewish Women” (Bauer, Greenbaum, Lightman, Studies in Comics 7:2 2015 ) have shown that Jewish women make a significant and varied contribution to contemporary comics.
