Places of Invention, Locations of Learning: Reading and Writing in the West

Recent journal issues in English studies (CCC; Kairos; RSQ) suggest that place matters to our discipline, as it both shapes and is shaped by our reading and writing practices. Our material environments not only influence our understanding of our students and ourselves as teachers, but they also support and constrain our opportunities for creative and rhetorical invention. The ideas we consider and discuss with others, the tools we have available to write and to teach, and the available means of persuasion, are all directly or indirectly tied to our locations.

IMAGES OF MINORITY LANGUAGES AND IDENTITIES

The starting point is the underlying interests fueled by the Images of minority languages and identities meaning group or minority social community expressions in an expanded context like that of the current EU.

The image of a minority identity and of a minority language, besides serving as a "brand" for one or the other, represents a line of communication and of explanation that refers to the role of the minority within a given society and at the same time, is an effective tool with which to underline how important it is, in general, to understand the languages and cultures related to them.

Call for Papers: The Future of Whedon
We all know and love Buffy, Firefly, Avengers, and the other big Whedon projects. But what's on the horizon—giant Marvelverse movies and tie-in shows? What about the smaller, long-rumored projects like Doctor Horrible 2, Ripper, Wastelanders, The Serving Girl? Whedon just created Bellwether Studios to produce Much Ado About Nothing and In Your Eyes. Will he do more Shakespeares like Hamlet? Film his decades-old scripts like Afterlife? What of the beloved Wonder Woman?

Editor, Nation & Its Discontents

Contributions are sought for an edited volume titled "Nation and Its Discontents" focusing on South Asia. The question concerning how to produce and disseminate knowledge on the 'nation', functioning as both an idea and a polity, without dispelling the 'cultural differences', calls for re-conceptualizing spaces, identities, diasporas etc. beyond western perception of nationhood. The 'nation-state', as often been argued, is an overtly restrictive projection of a model derived from western European experience onto the non-West where it may/does not apply.

CALL FOR PAPER
Monographic section - FURIO JESI
Edited by Alessandra Elisa Visinoni, Riccardo Ferrari, Marco Tabacchini
Archaeologist, Germanist, philologist, literary critic, poet, translator and, above all, mythologist: Furio Jesi's intellectual profile escapes any attempt of classification. Despite his premature death, Jesi left a vast production, which stands out both for the radicalism of its thought and for its variety. We find references to literary documentation, and especially to mythology, since his early studies on archaeology - see, for instance, his 1958 article devoted to 'archetypal connections'.
