Humanities in Transition : A Digital Journal

The humanities are in transition, whether you like it or not. We happen to like it. 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.

It is well known that the writers of the Latin American “Boom” Generation have influenced authors in emerging nations all over the world. Gabriel García Márquez, for example, played a significant role in shaping the works of Ismail Kadare (Albania), Salman Rushdie (India), and Chinua Achebe (Nigeria). All three of these authors have acknowledged García Márquez as a source of inspiration for their own writings; however, García Márquez’s other contemporaries including Carlos Fuentes, Mario Vargas Llosa, Julio Cortázar and more also influenced countless writers abroad. The main focus of this session is to explore how García Márquez and the other writers of the Latin American “Boom” have made an impact on authors beyond Latin America’s borders.

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).

Reckonings: Essays on American Revenge Narratives (edited collection)

I invite proposals for a collection of essays that examines the theme of revenge in American fiction, film, and television. Vengeance – that quest for violent reciprocity – is one of storytelling’s oldest and most enduring plots. But in the modern American imaginary the familiar shape of retribution assumes a new form. Over and over, avengers on page and screen desire not only blood but also symbolic victories. In Sherman Alexie’s Indian Killer (1996) a troubled protagonist named John Smith yearns to kill the one “white man [who] was responsible for everything that had gone wrong” for Native Americans.
