The Hulu series Castle Rock (2018 – 2019) occupies a unique textual space that both builds upon and transcends traditional notions of adaptation in its approach to Stephen King’s canon, engaging with the significance of place, intersecting narratives, and multiple worlds. As stated in the opening credits, Castle Rock is ‘based on characters and settings by Stephen King’, but it uses those established elements to create something original, telling new stories, building on iconic characters and creating compelling tales for new ones, situated within one of King’s signature Maine towns.
Linguistic Representations of Alterity
How is alterity represented linguistically in literary texts through dialect rendering, manifestations of aspects of one's social/political identity including gender, race, religion, sexuality, class, etc.?
The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has impacted the globe for more than a year. This development sparked renewed interest in the historical, sociocultural, political, and economic aspects of epidemics and pandemics, currently evidenced by an outpouring of scholarship on the consequences of the current pandemic on the world’s population as well as social and economic structures. This symposium provides a forum specifically for the study of the sociocultural developments that lead to “Othering” in situations of a perceived crisis.
This symposium explores North American Indigenous intellectual and narrative traditions that were recovered, reclaimed, or (re-)invented in the wake of Red Power movements that emerged in the 1960s in the settler colonial societies of Canada and the USA. It asks: which new perspectives and visions have been developed over the last 50 years within Indigenous studies and related fields when looking at Indigenous land and land rights, Indigenous political and social sovereignty, extractivism and environmental destruction, oppressive sex/gender systems, and for describing the repercussions of settler colonialism in North America, especially in narrative representations?

Call for Book Reviews Junctions Issue 6.1: Decolonizing the University
Contemporary Latinx writers, visual artists, dancers, and performance artists enact, embody, cross, and defy multiple borders – those of nation, gender, race, language, climate, species, among others – in their work. In doing so they often draw on indigenous and other inherited forms of cultural expression, reclaiming and resignifying them in the process. The tension between the desire to belong to a rooted community and the longing to break away from a prescriptive collective is a hallmark of Latinx expression on various borders – ranging from the Chihuahuan desert to the Massacre River.
