Protest has been part of human societies for millennia. Movements such as Black Lives Matter and Me Too offer a powerful reminder of the continued relevance of activism in the 21st century. While these examples of protest share a common DNA with historical civil rights and gender equality movements, activists today operate in a world where digital technology affords particular advantages and disadvantages that have changed how we engage with protest and dissent. We now have constant access to a steady stream of information about dissatisfaction with the state of our world, who is alleged to be responsible for the situation, and who is calling for change.

This section invites papers that explore the theme of “Duality, Doubles and Doppelgängers” that run through English literature and culture after 1900. This section encourages dialogues from a wide range of disciplines. Papers that discuss any form of duality and doubles—whether physical, emotional, psychological, or cognitive—are welcomed, including (but not limited to) alter-egos, doppelgängers, siblings, twins, mirror images, reflections, ghosts, archenemies, and evils. Papers that explore the relationship between a detective figure (the pursuer) and a criminal (the pursued) are most welcome.

Heroes, Villains, and Victims: Hagiography, Demonization, and Narrative's Role in Assessing Who Matters

Literature and history are rife with figures who are difficult to assess. For example, the television show Dexter was premised on the question of whether or not a murderer who only kills other murderers is a villain or a dark hero. Likewise, both historians and authors have attempted to determine whether John Brown was a hero, a terrorist, a victim, or a madman? Similarly, depending on the perspective from which he is analyzed, Che Guevara was a heroic revolutionary, a violent executioner, or, perhaps, a bit of both? Was Bertha Mason the madwoman in the attic as Charlotte Bronte would have us believe or a victim of the forces of both colonialization and patriarchy as Jean Rhys describes?

Tourism Security Safety And Post Conflict Destinations

Since the turn of the century, the international rules surrounding security and safety have significantly changed, specifically within the tourism industry. In the age of globalization, terrorism and conflict have moved beyond individual high-profile targets; instead, tourists, travellers and journalists are at risk. In response to this shift, the series invites authors and scholars to contribute to the conversation surrounding tourism security and post-conflict destinations. This call invites potential authors to present their book proposal revolving around tourism secuity and post conflict destinations.
