Fumbling Towards Ecstasy: The Intersectionality of Music and Deviance
Editor:Sylvia M DeSantis
This volume will explore the avenues through which 20th century musicians, and their enthused audiences, created necessarily deviant cultural movements. From the optimism engendered by the Big BandEra to socially justice-mindedGrunge in the ‘90s, musicians have used their stage power to resist, reward, and recreate long-standing cultural codes.
Drawing on the ASA conference theme “The Roof is on Fire,” this session invokes the phenomenon of book burnings to launch a broader conversation about the politicization of children’s media and the category of childhood itself — especially in debates about what materials children can and cannot encounter in domestic, institutional, and public spaces. For example, how is childhood being deployed in the targeted disinformation campaigns over Critical Race Theory?

The Cultural Heritage and Memory of Totalitarianism explores the legacy of Fascism in Italy blending unique in situ visits to art, architecture and historical monuments led by international experts and classes on literature, film and culture led by Sapienza faculty. The goal is to broaden the scholarly assessment of the period and to suggest innovative curricula for students in the humanities, who are also interested in working in museums and cultural institutes in Italy and abroad. The heritage of Fascism will be approached in the context of Nazism and Stalinism, and framed within the broader scenario of European colonialism. Special focus will be given to the analysis of totalitarianism’s influence on postcolonial dictatorships and post-WWII culture.

“Hidden Figures”: Greek American Women in Context
When we think of the western literary canon, we tend to think of the famous authors and works that have shaped our literary and scholarly culture into what it is today: Dante, Shakespeare, Milton, Dickens, Twain, Whitman, and the list goes on and on. But In our age of cultural and technological advancement, we believe that the bodies of works we consider worthy of study should also reflect the current world around us. Thus, the goal of this issue of The Humanities Review is to shine a spotlight on those authors, works, and platforms which have not yet found a home in the literary/academic canon, but still merit the kind of close literary analysis afforded to the canon.
Conversations concerned with borders often address the extent of geopolitics, the anthropocene, and the techno-industrial. Yet, “the meaning of the word border has progressively changed from a fact of nature to a cultural, political, and ideological product of human will (Power 6-13; Harvey). Natural frontiers do not exist either in a topographical or in a linguistic sense, and the self-conscious linking of place and identity is quite a modern phenomenon” (Spiridon 376).

"Narratives of Catastrophe"
Newspaper headlines of recent years, detailing extreme weather events, the rising spectres of authoritarian movements and the surveillance state, not to mention the COVID-19 pandemic, describe conditions uncomfortably similar to those typically found in the dystopian novel. As one bookstore in Smalltown Canada put it, “the Apocalyptic Fiction section has now been moved to Current Affairs.”
