Even as antifeminist and right-wing forces have gained footholds worldwide, feminists have forcefully asserted themselves in the public sphere as key voices of resistance. From the Women’s Marches around the world that took place the day after Donald Trump was inaugurated, to the 2012 protests in Delhi, to a new resurgence of writers proudly adopting the moniker, feminists have organized to claim public space and a public voice. It is no overstatement to claim that “the resistance” is being led by women, with intersectional feminism at its core.

“A painter’s drawing is really his writing…”
Although it is yet too early to draw conclusions about the ongoing public debate on Brexit, Britain’s tight vote to leave the European Union has certainly been read as a manifestation of deep divisions across the country. Political scientists Robert Ford and Matthew Goodwin claim in “Britain after Brexit: A Nation Divided” (2017) that “for all the country’s political parties, articulating and responding to the divisions that were laid bare in the Brexit vote will be the primary electoral challenge of tomorrow.” The divisions brought into focus since the referendum are indeed manifold: 52% vs. 48%; England vs. Scotland vs. Wales vs. Northern Ireland; city vs. countryside; liberal vs. conservative; old vs. young; high vs.
The spring 2018 issue of ELOPE is dedicated to the position and role of speculative fiction and especially science fiction in a world that is increasingly becoming speculative and science fictional. The globalized, digitally mediated nature of contemporary realities and, indeed, individuals, increasingly corresponds to those imagined by the literary cyberpunk of the 1980s – by the movement which with its formal and thematic properties arguably blurred the dividing line between the “mainstream” literary fiction and the science fiction genre.

Romeo and Juliet, From Page to Image
The mythology of Romeo and Juliet is world-famous. Within the Shakespearean canon, it is one of the most performed and adapted plays on the stage and on the page.

Critical Essays on Arthur Machen
edited by Antonio Sanna
At the time of his death in November 2016, Leonard Cohen had published two novels, eight poetry collections, and several volumes of selected works. In his better-known role as a singer, he had produced fourteen studio albums (which he once claimed to be hardly different from his books of poems), including You Want It Darker, released in October 2016 just before his death.

Cohen died on the eve of the 2016 presidential elections and did not see Donald Trump’s victory.
