The Scattered Pelican, the graduate journal of Comparative Literature at Western University, is excited to share the Call for Papers for its forthcoming Spring issue, entitled "Fight OR Flight":

In 1915, Harvard scientist Walter Bradford Cannon coined the term "fight or flight" to describe animals' responses to challenging stimuli, including potential bodily harm and threats to survival. Cannon's work provided us with insight into how animals—humans included—employ physiological mechanisms to deal with stressful encounters, arguably with the end to maintain homeostasis in both the bodily and environmental systems.

Gender Forum: An Internet Journal for Gender Studies

Ever since the momentous success of Ang Lee's western-drama Brokeback Mountain, queer film has increasingly reached the mainstream. Brokeback Mountain was followed by a considerable amount of Hollywood productions that focused on representations of queer issues and characters such as Milk, A Single Man, The Imitation Game and, as the youngest addition to the list, Stonewall. The latter is directed by Roland Emmerich, a filmmaker who is usually known for blockbusters like Independence Day. The fact that both star directors and casts have entered the production of critically and commercially successful queer film-making is indicative of its mainstream potential and a growing target audience.
