Watchung Review invites scholarly papers on the theme of migrations and identity. This is a timely topic, both in academic work and in the media, and one which calls on the rich work of postcolonialism, movement and migration in literature and rhetoric, and interdisciplinary studies of migration and identity. We encourage submissions which approach these deeply political issues head on, and papers which interpret the theme more broadly by investigating issues of migration arising in a variety of periods, intellectual spaces and within a range of critical and theoretical perspectives. Topics of interest may include but are not limited to:
• Historical or Temporal Migrations
• Movement across Borders
• Community and Identity

Order Out of Chaos: Conflict and Resolution in Medieval Culture

Many points of conflict in medieval culture have been the focus of study, including ideological conflicts like that between chivalry and Christianity or between the Church and various reformers, both internal and external. Debates about the use of the vernacular as opposed to classical or dominant languages or about the relative merits of different genres are often imbedded in literary works. Clashes between classes or between political entities help create an idea of the Middle Ages as a time of constant conflict. At the same time, these conflicts have led to growth and development, the changes that lead society in new directions.

The 2013 publication of Thomas Ohlgren and Lister Matheson's Early Rymes of Robyn Hood: An Edition of the Texts, ca. 1425-1600 provides new opportunities for scholars to reread and reconsider the earliest Robin Hood rhymes and plays. Scholars now have access to the extant manuscripts of the late medieval ballads as well as two early plays. Now that these early texts are readily available—some for the first time—it is time for scholars of a wide range of interests and backgrounds to return to the medieval rhymes with the aid of this significant new resource that allows for truly in-depth analysis of the source materials.
