Since the turn of the millennium the United States of America has undergone what many have considered to be a series of political, financial, and institutional crises. At the same time, the increasing popularity of the science fiction genre has, in many ways, frequently both dramatized and provided a commentary on the fears and anxieties this period has evoked. The philosopher and cultural critic Walter Benjamin argued that allegory emerges most frequently in periods of crisis and uncertainty, correspondingly it is no coincidence that some of the most powerful films to emerge from American cinema in the last two decades are allegorical texts and many of which have come from the science fiction genre.

I am looking for a scholar to write an entry on “Domestic Violence” for Violence in American Society: An Encyclopedia of Trends, Problems, and Perspectives. Unfortunately, I had this entry fall through—someone cancelled last-minute and now I’m scrabbling to find a writer able to take on the subject, which would generally include violence at home, often (but not always) directed at children and spouses. The entry would look at historical, contemporary, and mediated depictions of domestic violence in the United States.

Ontologies: Special issue of The Comparatist

The Comparatist
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 1, 2019

We welcome contributions that examine the turn to ontology in the humanities and the social sciences. What does the shift to ontology signify? What is it purporting to correct or overcome? What is its relation to prior turns (such as the linguistic turn and the cultural turn)? Is the turn to ontology an attempt to liberate continental philosophy from its infatuation with language and power, from its obsession with mediation, relationality, and subjectivity? What are the politics of this turn to ontology? Is it more receptive to non-European thought and to the nonhuman? What kind of philosophy or literary theory emerges when ontology is taken as the starting point?  

Topics of interest could include:

Object-Oriented Ontology
