- the evil eye (Al-Ayn, in Arabic), Djinnati
- Zar possession, brain fag, boufée delirante
- mental illnesses that are often attributed to evil spirits, also known as “jinns” etc.

Decolonial Dialogues from, within and beyond the Global Margins

University of York, United Kingdom
This special issue centers Blackness in fandom studies. Fandom studies has gestured toward race generally, and Blackness in particular, from its alleged white center while always keeping race at its margin. It has largely co-opted the language of race, difference, and diversity from the margins and recentered it around white geeks and white women. Indeed, fandom studies has done lots of things—except deal with its race problem. But as Toni Morrison (1975) asserts, that is the work of racism: it keeps those at the margins busy, trying to prove that they deserve a seat at the center table.
Essence & Critique: Journal of Literature and Drama Studies invites submissions for a special issue of the journal on Myths, Archetypes and the Literary Arts.
