Elsewhere: Wandering In and Out of the Humanities 

J. R. R. Tolkien once wrote, “Not all those who wander are lost.” Although this quotation has experienced its fair share of "inspirational quote" status by both Tolkien and Coachella fans alike, there remains a question of what "wandering" and "being elsewhere" means for the academic community.

Ethos: A Digital Review of the Arts, Humanities, and Public Ethics—a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary online journal and digital forum—invites submissions for its August 2017 special issue on the Anthropocene. In 2016, the International Commission on Stratigraphy met to discuss whether or not to formally define our current geological epoch as the “Anthropocene.” Despite the fact that the term has not been officially sanctioned, it has been widely adopted by popular scientists, social theorists, humanities scholars and others since its coining in 2000 by Paul Crutzen and Eugene Stoermer.

Studies in American Humor
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2017

Humor was the original scaffolding upon which American comic books were built. We have not historically called them “funny books” for nothing. Today, however, humor-based comics and graphic novels have been relatively marginalized by both scholars and contemporary readers alike. The focus of this special issue of Studies in American Humor, ser. 4, 4, no. 2 (October 2018), will be the comic side of comics, the funny that helped make the funnies. We are looking for essays that discuss graphic humor in periodicals from historical, thematic, and theoretical perspectives.

As political events across the world have made clear, the right wing is ascendant: from the election of Donald J. Trump in the United States; to the Brexit victory in the United Kingdom; to the rise of rise of rightist, nationalist, anti-immigrant, and neo-Nazi parties across Europe; to the election of the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party in India; to the Philippine president’s professed admiration for Adolf Hitler; to the impeachment of a democratically elected woman leader in Brazil; to the military coup and gendered crackdown in Egypt; to the virulently antigay legislation in Uganda, in which US–based Christian evangelicals played no small role.

 Terrorism in Literature: On Examining a Global Phenomenon

A monographic volume on Terrorism

 

Mahmud Darwich claims: “Nothing, nothing justifies terrorism”. Terrorism, like a virus, is spreading to the whole world. It does not advocate any ideology; it rather involves psychopathological personalities.

Papers are invited to investigate and discuss terrorism in literary texts from different perspectives. What is this phenomenon? Why? What for? For/by Whom? What are its social, political and cultural drawbacks? What happened to humanity? How to stop this plague?
