This collection focuses on liberation narratives which are in some way related to or inspired by religious traditions/literatures/practices/discourses from around the world. The films and analyses need not be explicitly religious in content, but need only to be argued in the context of liberation with theology, spirituality, or divinity.

In today’s global society, understanding different cultures as we interact and construct our beliefs and identities has never been more important. As educators, our responsibility to guide students in developing critical thinking in their consumption of visual media is crucial to their ability to appreciate different perspectives. While teachers may recognize intuitively the power of film to expose students to other languages and cultures, examining the benefits of using it to develop students’ creativity and analytical skills can help maximize its effectiveness in the classroom.

The Visible Cities': Teaching Language and Culture through the City

Sunday, September 30, 2018

Most language teachers think that cities, in all their aspects, are an important and rich resource for the language classroom. The study of a city, what we can see in a movie or read in a literary work, exposes students to authentic language and offers plenty of material to be integrated in the classroom. Cities are privileged windows through which students have the opportunity to address historical, political, artistic and social issues. Moreover, there are many elements inside the city that have the potential of making students aware of the importance of intercultural proficiency and can stimulate their interest in the culture of the target language.

Call for Papers – Altered Carbon


Abstracts are sought for a collection of philosophical essays related to the Netflix Original series Altered Carbon (2018). Since season two starts shooting in October and is supposed to be released in the first half of 2019, we feel that a collection of academic articles about the first season would be in order around the same time. One acclaimed academic publisher has already expressed interest in the collection.
