As a sport, basketball follows a certain set of rules and conventions which serve as a framework for players, coaches, and teams to play the sport. By their very nature, these rules are meritocratic which means that all participants are equal on the court, play by the same rules, and the only relevant (read as: game deciding) factors are effort, skill, and fortune. Such a perspective on basketball and sports leads certain fans and observers to statements such as “politics should be kept out of sports”.
Third Cinema films successfully manages to depict the socio-political issues of the world. These issues include the effects of colonization, oppression, and conflict between classes or nations. These films are especially pivotal for the political issues of the Third World. In this sense, films play a fundamental role in the struggle for justice for marginalized communities. Third Cinema is a tool through which debate, activism, and discussion are evoked in society. These films expose the realities of the world and have gained recognition in terms of art, politics, and humanity. Indeed, the Third Cinema is revolutionary for society in every convincible way.

Dear friends and colleagues,
Since the turn of the twenty-first century, scholars and educators working in interdisciplinary fields connected to multilingualism, have been developing new conceptual theory and applied pedagogy. These areas include history, culture, linguistics, literary and media phenomena, as well as technological and pedagogical approaches to multilingualism, and the study of multilingual communities in the United States. Immigration, globalization, the mechanization of language diversity, translation tools, social media, and universal streaming platforms have contributed to the rapid progression of multilingualism.

If Jane Austen and the history books present one version of the regency, Bridgerton shows a far different one. While the series had many surprises for viewers, it’s less clear what’s responsible. Does this come from being a 2020 show? From Netflix style? From the romance novels source material? Let’s consider and also weigh what worked and what didn’t. I’m seeking essays on:
Length will depend on how many submissions arrive. They will be in MLA format, secondary sources welcome, scholarly be approachable and fun for fans. Abstracts still accepted, essays due June 30.
