This collection attempts to look at the role of digital media as a constructive and disseminating narrative in the world, to delineate a meta-narrative of ‘digital martyrdom’. This collection aims to initiate a study not only on martyrdom in the digital space but a digitisation of martyrdom. It will seek to look especially at the role of mainstream and sponsored media propaganda to locate those interstices in the narratives which subtly subvert narratives of the mainstream mass media. In the first section of the collection, the focus will be on chapters which use as its premise usage of commercial media. The subversion is to be specifically located in the dissemination, language, and reception of the contents of the media matter.

At the dawn of ‘ecocriticism’ as a discipline of study within the Humanities, Glotfelty and Fromm (1996), in the first general reader in the matter, defined it as the critical practice that examines the relationship between literary and cultural studies and the natural world. In general terms, during the past two decades, ecocriticism has denounced the anthropocentric and instrumental appropriation of nature that has for so long legitimized human exploitation of the nonhuman world.

Slavery and Sexuality in Classical Antiquity

We are inviting chapters of 6000-7000 words for an edited collection that explores the intersection of slavery and sexuality in the ancient world. The past twenty years have seen ground-breaking scholarship that has illuminated Greek and Roman prostitution, and this volume will broaden the area of study to document more fully the role of sex in the lives of slaves who were not prostitutes, and to consider the various ways in which sexuality and slavery were interconnected in the minds of the ancients. Chapters might include discussion of the following issues:

CFP: Health, Gender, and Embodiment

The theme for our Summer 2018 issue will be health, gender, and embodiment. To be embodied selves, tied to our human form in sickness and in health, offers unique challenges, physically, socially, psychologically, and culturally. Dósis seeks engagement across disciplines on topics concerning health, gender, and embodiment, but also on other aspects of embodied experience. Of particular interest: issues of access, acceptance, justice, and human rights.

We invite essays, commentary, reviews, and visual art that meditate on these themes. Our expectations are as follows:
