Novitas-ROYAL is open access, peer-reviewed, international journal of Children’s Research Center. It is devoted to promoting scholarly exchange among researchers who are academically interested in the education of youth with a focus on teaching, learning, acquisition, and use of second/foreign languages, any issues related to linguistics and language sciences, cultures, and literatures. The primary aim of the journal is to help accumulate knowledge of how foreign languages, cultures, and literatures have the potential to change the lives of students. The journal is only electronic (no print version). It is biannually published in April and October.
The geopolitical space called ‘South Asia’ has resulted in a literature that is the product of various forms of contact i.e. travel, pilgrimage, colonization, trade etc. Social movements and historical changes have triggered transformations globally and it reinvigorated the ongoing dialogue regarding the true interpretation of South Asian literature. Philosophers like Merleau Ponty (phenomenologist), Martin Buber (existentialist) or Bakhtin all helped in reconceptualised understanding of human relations and thereby, in turn leading to a greater understanding of South Asian literature from newer and emerging perspectives.

The Twentieth century saw the rapid development of the city and its impact on the socio-cultural fabric of nations manifested in the social and cultural ways of living. The city came to be represented as an urban wasteland and the loss and moving away from the pastoral was eulogised in many texts. These texts looked into the anonymity of the individual in the milieu of the city where the older closed bonds of the familiar rural community got replaced by the unfamiliar existence. The village was seen as an idyllic space nurturing the humans towards an organic and symbiotic coexistence and ways of living.

Edward Bond is one of the most controversial and prolific playwrights of British theatre. Throughout his writing career; the playwright has challenged the conservative standpoint of theatre and education institutions which, he believes, alienate human beings ‒ especially children ‒ from their inner self. He reveals the cultural, psychological, social and individual conflicts of human beings between their inner self and outer world by exploring the effects of violent acts in his plays some of which were staged at more than 60 countries all over the world.
The Science and Technology area of NEPCA encourages proposals for presentations that explore the relation of science and technology (broadly defined) to popular culture and to American culture. We are particularly interested in putting science, technology, culture, and the humanities in conversation with one another. How are science and technology represented in popular culture? How do we use popular culture to understand science and technology? And how do we use science and technology to understand narratives, art, and culture? What do we gain, what do we risk by approaching science and technology from the lens of the humanities, the humanities from the lens of science, by putting these disciplines in conversation with each other?

Desde tiempos inmemorables la representación cultural de la mujer ha estado sometida a la mirada masculina, que la ha cosificado, sexualizado, cuando no vilificado. A pesar de los grandes avances, al menos formales, para la mujer en España desde los años 80, todavía no se la suele ver en posiciones de poder, en aquellos lugares donde se toman las decisiones sobre, por ejemplo, a quiénes publicar, qué tipos de programas se muestran en la televisión, qué tipo de mujer y de relaciones se visualizan, qué canciones se escuchan en la radio, etc.

Beyond the White House: The First Lady in Film, Fiction, and Culture.
This edited collection seeks to explore the representation of the First Lady in a range of different texts and media.

Contemporary women writers have long been at the forefront of diverse conversations regarding race, society, and culture. From the works of legendary greats, such as Maya Angelou, Maxine Hong Kingston, Amy Tan, and Nawal Ed Saadawi, to the vibrant writing of Octavia Butler, Bernardine Evaristo, and Jenny Zhang, to name just a few, contemporary women authors have elucidated the wide and varied experiences of race across time, genre, and forms. Such work also frequently attends, in nuanced ways, to the lived experience and dynamics of intersectionality.
