In the form of memoirs, autobiographies, diaries or correspondence, or given a literary spin as autofiction and biofiction, the experiences of East and South-East European women during wartimes and under the oppressive regimes of the twentieth century (a period laden with contrasts, which in the West was hailed as “acentury of women”, Rowbotham 1997, but also framed as an “age of testimony”, Felman and Laub 1992) have been surfacing in the past two decades. The transmission of these narratives followed sinuous paths, taking both verbal and non-verbal forms, relying on both “filial” and “affiliative” networks (Hirsch 2012), and coming from both female victims and female perpetrators (Schwab 2010).

College students with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and/or other learning disabilities are frequently allowed to complete examinations and assignments under separate rules or even in a separate, distraction-reduced setting. For example, although separate room test accommodations are believed to provide students with equal access to testing and thereby improve performance, little experimental research has examined their effects on actual test/essay scores. Even less research and scholarship focus on the location of testing and the impact of testing centers on students with various documented disabilities.

HERA invites research, papers, panels, and presentations embracing inclusivity in all aspects of the human conditions––including, but not limited to, race, class, gender, sexuality, age, veteran status, ability, power, ecology, sustainability. We encourage a wide and extensive representation of disciplines and interdisciplinary projects. Every field in the humanities, liberal & creative arts, and social sciences is appropriate. Our goal is to foster the sharing and expressing of the humanities as an urgently important human enterprise––helping to clarify the crucial immediacy of the humanities and why they should be encouraged, supported, and sustained.

Much of the Western world has a rising problem with white nationalists. These white supremacists often co-opt fields like Classics, medievalism, and Norse mythology to support their racist ideologies—twisting these disciplines and repressing or ignoring evidence for the multicultural and multiracial realities of the ancient and medieval world. In terms of Classics, these distortions and appropriations have been documented by an emerging generation of scholars like Donna Zuckerberg, Dan-el Padilla Peralta, Curtis Dozier, Sarah Bond, and others. Ancient myth, literature, and symbols continue to pervade modern culture.

Re-imagining Class: Working-Class Identity and Intersectionality in Contemporary Culture
Symposium, 5-6 May 2022 (Leuven, BE)
CALL FOR PAPERS: The CEA Critic, Special Issue: “Impediments to Student Success”
For the past year (and more), teachers at all levels, across disciplines, and, indeed, around the globe have been working overtime to ensure their students’ success in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID presented a set of obstacles new to most of us. At the same time, COVID called our attention to obstacles that have interrupted our students’ paths since long before the pandemic. These obstacles, which have only become more obvious, are what we now wish to explore.
