Backward Glances 2022: Saturation
This proposed special issue navigates the intersections of Black and Indigenous ecologies. Ecologies encompass natural and constructed environments, understories, and overstories that allow renewed attention to notions of mobility, modernity, protest, climate change, human and nonhuman relationality, and more. Ecologies shape and are shaped by macro as well as micro units of the community, the nation-state, and the global. Ecologies are also fundamental to the ways we approach and understand historical, social, political, and economic relationships around the world.
CALL FOR CHAPTERS: Elevating Intentional Education Practice in Graduate Programs provides a framework for all graduate programs. This book implores educational leaders to evaluate performance metrics of educator quality, educational services, activities, technology, continuous improvement, educational leadership, and intentional education practice theory (IEPT) (teaching style). The objective is to improve graduate education and training programs with measurable outcomes to evaluate graduate educators, administrators, and programs. It also focuses on the improvement of graduate education performance and the ability of instructors to intentionally impact students.

The nineteenth century witnessed an upsurge of representations of the region across Europe and North America, in media ranging from literary fiction to the illustrated periodical and from visual arts to architecture. The rise of regionalism has often been linked to nationalism and nation-building. As such, the transnational dimensions of regionalism—in its themes as well as publication and circulation—are frequently overlooked. These transnational aspects are the focus of the Dutch Research Council-funded project Redefining the Region at Radboud University, which considers representations of the region in literature and illustrated periodicals during the long nineteenth century.

In Nicomachean Ethics and Politics, Aristotle conceived ethics and politics to be both interrelated and exclusively male endeavors. This notion continued to be influential in the early modern period (c. 1500 – 1800). Yet in recent decades, feminist scholarship has showed that throughout the early modern world numerous women nonetheless discussed, developed, and challenged politics and ethics in profound and often surprising ways.
This edited volume seeks to examine how sexual violence and feminist interventions in South Asia and the Diaspora have been articulated in the context of but, more importantly, in opposition to the #MeToo Movement. We seek to understand how the feminist movement has radically diverged from the assimilationist discourse of the #MeToo Movement and, consequently, the Global North. The #MeToo movement has not made an impact at the grassroots level because it is hinged on the victim-survivor to speak up. In an era where the Global North has been a model for influencing change in the Global South, there has been an inconspicuous absence of recognition and impact of the #MeToo Movement.

Maloy (QCC, CUNY) The COVID-19 pandemic brought swift and major changes to higher education in the United States

Fandom today is often entangled with digital platforms, which offer spaces and features that make some aspects of fan culture more widely accessible amid increasingly globalized communities and models of consumption. Fans are perceived to be early adopters of new technologies, particularly those that provide space for gathering and community building. Likewise, many types of fan works, fan labor, and fandom participation depend on certain platforms for hosting, sharing, distributing, and discussing such content. However, fans also have complicated relationships with platforms, whether because their needs and uses are in conflict with other stakeholders or because platforms can generate and challenge notions of access, accountability, and community.
