Humanities in Transition : A Digital Journal

The humanities are in transition, whether you like it or not. We happen to like it. The aim of this journal is to create an online space for humanists to begin experimenting.  To that end, we seek authors with a broad vision, who write with clarity about the films, TV shows, Podcasts, music videos, etc. that they love. Our authors have a firm grounding in tradition, but with an eye to the future and to our students. We welcome your submissions.

It is well known that the writers of the Latin American “Boom” Generation have influenced authors in emerging nations all over the world. Gabriel García Márquez, for example, played a significant role in shaping the works of Ismail Kadare (Albania), Salman Rushdie (India), and Chinua Achebe (Nigeria). All three of these authors have acknowledged García Márquez as a source of inspiration for their own writings; however, García Márquez’s other contemporaries including Carlos Fuentes, Mario Vargas Llosa, Julio Cortázar and more also influenced countless writers abroad. The main focus of this session is to explore how García Márquez and the other writers of the Latin American “Boom” have made an impact on authors beyond Latin America’s borders.

In today’s global landscape, the category of the “human” has assumed a principal position not simply in terms of its ontological centrality but also in relation to surrounding nonhuman worlds. At stake are questions ranging from the impact of humans on the biosphere (the Anthropocene) to their involvement in the virtual world (Knowledge Commons and Ergodicity) to their experiences of the “inner life” of things (Object-oriented ontology and Affect Theory) to the ethical politics over the Other (the terrorist, the refugee, the queer).

The Public “Humanities” in the Eighteenth Century: Roundtable

Thursday, September 15, 2016

Defending and explaining the “humanities” and “liberal arts” has become a regular challenge to many of us at institutions public or private. How can turning to the eighteenth century help us to clarify the stakes and to develop more nuanced rather than reactive responses? What were eighteenth-century understandings of the value of the literary, the artistic, the amateur scientific experiment? 

In this era of multiple public spheres and global publics, how was multilingualism or the cultural encounter valued?

Life writing is a genre and a practice of criticism (Marlene Kadar, 1992) that refers to history, literature, and documentary and includes the sub-genres of memoirs, biography, oral testimonies, diaries, epistolary works and personal narratives. The genre writing has been a favorite one for research in the humanities serving to explore identity formation and inner dialogue with the self as well as with critical transitions, such as cultural adaptation, diaspora, migration, and other traumatic experiences. Life writings are an important resource to understand individuals, communities and the cultural impacts of historical periods. The immediate effects of personal letters and journals disclose the past of individuals and collectives.
