This thematic double issue of Studies in the Humanities addresses globalization as a blossoming of inclusive systems of transnational capitalism, multicultural traffic, and networking technology, which has also generated symptoms of exclusion related to migration/refuge, precarious life, and various catastrophes that debunk the holistic universality of one rainbow global village. Political dialectics has turned into the absolute antagonism between the ‘soft’ ethical inclusion of differences in the whole and the ‘hard’ ethical backlash from its excluded remnants. Multiculturalism and terrorism, neoliberalism and fundamentalism, compassion and hate, human rights and bare life interlock like two sides of the same coin.

"Fear and Anxiety in Contemporary Drama and Performance": 27th Annual CDE Conference, University of Hildesheim (Germany), 31 May to 3 June 2018

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 15, 2017

In an increasingly news-saturated world – or even, a news-controlled one – contemporary Western social and cultural discourse is preoccupied with narratives of fear and anxiety. Especially after the events of 11 September 2001, there has been a significant increase in plays and productions representing events, contexts, people, and situations that relate to these themes. Meanwhile, we are encouraged to be afeared of: the anonymous or digital other, the unknown or unexplainable (such as disappearing planes), the collapse of capitalism (and the bankers who caused it), fake news and ‘post-truths’, and the rise of the political right (or left).

-NeMLA 2018 in Pittsburgh, Emotional Nation, National Emotions in Medieval and Renaissance French Literature Recent scholarship has acknowledged the importance of emotions in the premodern and medieval periods, notably how they were an important part of community building, as well as of political, intellectual, and religious worlds. This panel will explore how emotions were used in literature about the nascent idea of the French nation. If the French kingdom was “naturally” built around the image of the sovereign, some events weakened and threatened its power, even causing profound institutional crises.
