Adam Shprintzen

Chapter proposals are invited for a new interdisciplinary and transnational volume focusing on the social and cultural contexts of vegetarianism throughout history. This volume will represent the first scholarly collection of essays that critically considers vegetarianism as both a worldwide phenomena and an aspect of the longue durée of history, and seeks to explain vegetarianism as a global, social, and historical continuity. Taken as a whole, the essays will provide an answer as to how and why vegetarianism has been a constant throughout human history despite continuous social challenges.

updated: 
Tuesday, March 22, 2016 - 2:22pm
Watchung Review

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
