The primary aim of this edited volume is to explore the word ‘Literature’ in the age of AI. Etymologically, the Latin word litteratura is derived from littera (Latin) meaning the ‘smallest element of alphabetical writing’ (Klarer 1). The word ‘literature,’ then means, any writing e.g., a medical prescription, usage instruction written on the bottle of shampoo or maybe a cautionary warning on the packet of cigarettes. To specify the particular type of literature we use the term ‘Creative Literature’ (called the Literature of Power by Rees).

Sacred Cultures in Politics, a collection of scholarly articles, seeks to reveal sacred and/or religious rhetoric serving as persuasive tools in the vast arena of political activism. In his Homo Sacer: Sovereign Power and Bare Life, Giorgio Agamben challenges religious institutions to use their persuasive powers not for priestly privilege but “to make a new possible” for humanity. In a similar spirit, this collection seeks to make transparent both the rhetorical systems and their use in local, national, regional, or global political arenas.

What cultural objects and phenomena are designated to be ugly, bad, unacceptable, and monstrous, especially in relation to gender, sexuality, disability, race, class, and caste? Whose histories are marginalized or overlooked because of their perceived bad taste, abject existence, and the taint they leave on supposedly beautiful, grand narratives of nationhood, well-being, or progress? How do kitsch, camp, and excess function in the realms of activism in contemporary politics? How do nasty, revulsive art, literature, and performances act as sites that engender questions that push boundaries of societal mores and cultural hierarchies?

Since the fin de siècle, the ubiquity of the camera has disrupted notions of gazing at others and ourselves. Moving from the 20th century to the 21st, the camera’s gaze has taken on many overlapping and at times antagonistic roles: it archives, captures, testifies, interrogates, interrupts, imagines, distorts, exposes, imposes, and surveils.

Stigmatised identities: Alternative Sexualities in/out of Normative Representations

 

The concept of ‘stigma’, including the many perspectives on stigmatised identities and processes of stigmatisation, is a crucial tool to focus on alternative sexualities and their representation. The issue has been addressed in numerous disciplinary fields, with studies attempting to understand stigma both generally in terms of social dynamics (Goffman 1963 and 1969; Becker 1963; Jones et al. 1984), and in its specific relation to sexuality (Herek 1998; Evans 2002).

We inhabit a moment of accelerated urbanization primarily driven by the integration of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in urban planning and management, most ambitiously articulated in the promises of the ‘smart city’. The ubiquity of digital information infrastructures has reshaped the form, shape, and texture of cities. Contemporary urbanity has come to be defined by ICTs. As the social, experiential and physical spaces in the city are increasingly being experienced with and through data generated by networked digital devices, digital mediations exert profound impact on how urban spaces are being reconfigured, curated and navigated.
