Class and Precarity in a New World Order: Writers and Artists Respond

The Covid-19 pandemic left an indelible mark on both filmmaking and the way in which the general public experienced film. The need for social distancing led film makers and producers to change much of the way films were produced, marketed, and released. Big budget films that would have previously included massive casts had to be adapted, delayed, or sidelined for smaller, easier to produce film projects. Wide-spread theater closures led to the delay of highly anticipated films, elevated the prominence of the independent film industry, and sped the movement of new films to streaming platforms.

We are soliciting two types of original contributions to this work:
“Literature in his truly encyclopedic respect, displaceses the various kinds of knowledge, does not fix or fetishize any of them”: with this statement Roland Barthes affirmed the singularity of the literary fact and the specific relationship between literature and other disciplines. Provocative as it is, literature can at times both attract and irritates, soothe and disturb. Barthes’ claim can certainly apply to Elena Ferrante’s works. Her writing is in dialogue with traditional and contemporary texts, articulating practices and topics which are central not only to the literary universe, but also to philosophy, feminism, history, social sciences, and psychoanalysis.

The critical field of emotion history has long established a link between emotions and socio-political identity. Emotion historians of the Middle Ages have analysed the ways in which emotional experience and expression shape an individual’s belonging to a specific community, and vice-versa (Rosenwein), or how emotions interact with gender regimes (Boquet). Yet emotions also have the capacity to disturb and reinvent identity categories. Approaching such categories through the prism of emotion thus allows us to account for more mobile and fluid models of identity.

Are sweeter; therefore, ye soft pipes, play on;
Not to the sensual ear, but, more endear’d,
Pipe to the spirit ditties of no tone:

Samyukta: A Journal of Gender & Culture proposes to bring out a special number on early women’s magazines in Malayalam. These magazines played a significant role in negotiating the gender dynamics in the late 19th and early 20th centuries in Keralam. The debates on the lives of women with reference to modernity, colonial or otherwise, have been fraught with paradoxes and contradictions that require detailed interrogation. While the grand narratives of the times were scripted by and for men, women’s lives were punctuated mostly by the banalities of everyday lives. The new found interest at the turn of the twenty-first century in micro-narratives that tell alternate stories contesting the dominant has prompted us to undertake the present study.
HUNGER AND WASTE
Volume 40, Number 1, Spring 2022
Issue Editor: Isabelle Meuret
This issue of Literature and Medicine will interrogate expressions of hunger and waste in both literary and biomedical contexts.
Hunger is a physiological disposition, a daily preoccupation, and a metaphor for desire. On another scale, global hunger—leading to malnutrition and starvation—affects hundreds of millions living in poverty. As for waste, the dearth, careless use, or squandering of resources, together with climate change and other environmental challenges, have raised new concerns about food supplies and unequal access.
