A dark urban setting scattered with dots of light. Yellow gas flames shoot up against a glowing red horizon, creating an almost hellish feel. Flying cars pierce the atmosphere, revealing the orange smog haze that reappears in urban sequences throughout the movie. As the camera moves closer to futuristic, monumental buildings, cold white beams of light transition to interiors dominated by blue hues. Sequences in the Tyrell Corporation are marked by cool tones as opposed to Deckard’s warm-toned private spaces. How would we feel and think about a cult film like Blade Runner (1982) if cinematographic choices about color had been made differently?
This Collection: This collection focuses on and explores the concepts of illness and healing in association with Tolkien’s medieval connections and Middle-earth.

Consent affects people of all genders, sexual orientations, and nationalities. Responding to recent campaigns such as #MeToo and #TimesUp, as well as the work of the 1752 Group, this edited collection brings together and develops the intersectional and interdisciplinary conversations that emerged during a 2019 conference on Consent hosted at Durham University. We are looking to broaden the scope of our collection, and invite papers which focus on historical formulations of consent, literary and cultural representations of consent, and potential pathways and dialogues for the future.
From the Gothic beginnings of E.T.A. Hoffman’s Mademoiselle de Scudéri (1819-20), one could sense the heavy breathings of a darkness almost entirely manifested in Anger. When Olivier Brusson comes knocking at de Scudéri’s door, standing on the verge of being turned away by La Martinière, he responds in an axiomatic manner: “Remember, her anger will rest upon you for ever when she comes to know that it was you who cruelly drove away from her door the unfortunate wretch who came to beg for her help”. What Olivier communicates, albeit cryptically, is that the perpetuation of anger becomes a remote possibility in instinctive nescience, whereas Knowledge creates that anger which stands capable of generating fruitful results.

In 2017 historian Per Faxneld published the landmark study Satanic Feminism: Lucifer as the Liberator of Woman in Nineteenth-Century Culture. The book argues for the existence of a nineteenth-century counter-reading of Satan that constructed the Devil as a symbol of women's liberation, progressive values, and intellectual freedom. For nineteenth- and early twentieth-century suffragists, artists, and radical thinkers, Satan served as an empowering model of self-determination and nonconformity.

POETRY AND THE GLOBAL CLIMATE CRISIS:
CREATIVE APPROACHES TO COMPLEX CHALLENGES
To find a point of intersection between the realms of fashion and psychoanalysis, we should first try to define what exactly is fashion. As an expression of creativity, fashion could serve as a medium to canalize the inner life of the individuum, which is a concept that evokes the notion of the subconscious. Some artists and designers have already undergone an exploration of this field of work, Dalí and Schiaparelli being the most relevant case among them. Despite its clear connection with the principles of the surrealist movement, which generates its creativity precisely from the shadows of the human psyche, fashion articulates its imagery in highly symbolized language.
A new book series has been established by Routledge, with a focus on popular culture.

The Series places a particular emphasis on evolutions and transformations within popular culture — with a focus on icons, narratives, practices, and identities — and aims to provide interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and transmedia perspectives.
