  "Angry Young (Wo)Men": Theatrical Violence as Ethical Debate

In late 1995, two significant events changed the theatrical landscape:
John Osborne (Look Back in
Anger) died, and Sarah Kane's play Blasted premiered at the Royal Court
Theatre in London. The timing
was somewhat serendipitous—as one of the original "Angry Young Men"
left this world, one of the "New
Brutalists" made her mark on it.

Call for Papers - Wider Screen 02/2007 - The cinema of Aki and Mika
Kaurismäki

The films of Finnish directors Aki and Mika Kaurismäki are multifaceted
texts that balance between a variety of cultural tropes. The films are
simultaneously national and international; they deal with Finnish national
myths alongside the globalisation of national culture; the films blur the
distinctions between high culture and low culture both in terms of thematics
and aesthetics; they circulate the globe in both commercial and festival
releases, gaining widely discrepant critical and commercial receptions.

  Only Human?: Medical Biology vs. The Social Model of Disability
   
  In her 1999 book Female Forms, Carol Thomas suggests that disability studies and activism would benefit from a social model approach to definitions of disability, as opposed to the long-standing contention that disability, impairment, and its effects are biological, physiological, anatomical—in short, medical.
