Call For Book Chapters: ‘Bondian Drama’ and Young Audience

Edward Bond is one of the most controversial and prolific playwrights of British theatre. Throughout his writing career; the playwright has challenged the conservative standpoint of theatre and education institutions which, he believes, alienate human beings ‒ especially children ‒ from their inner self. He reveals the cultural, psychological, social and individual conflicts of human beings between their inner self and outer world by exploring the effects of violent acts in his plays some of which were staged at more than 60 countries all over the world.

In his foreword to World Report on Violence and Health, published by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2002, Nelson Mandela states that “the twentieth century will be remembered as a century marked by violence” (Krug et.al., 2002, “Foreword”).  Now we are nearly at the end of the first quarter of the twenty-first century, but violence still permeates in our lives at various levels. Various forms of violence occurring at levels of interpersonal, self-directed, collective, state, warfare, child and youth violence, intimate partner violence, environmental violence, and animal violence lay bare the complexity and pervasiveness of the phenomenon, yet it also brings along the necessity to discuss violence from multiple perspectives. 

Science and Technology in Popular Culture

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, August 1, 2021

The Science and Technology area of NEPCA encourages proposals for presentations that explore the relation of science and technology (broadly defined) to popular culture and to American culture. We are particularly interested in putting science, technology, culture, and the humanities in conversation with one another. How are science and technology represented in popular culture? How do we use popular culture to understand science and technology? And how do we use science and technology to understand narratives, art, and culture? What do we gain, what do we risk by approaching science and technology from the lens of the humanities, the humanities from the lens of science, by putting these disciplines in conversation with each other?

Representación de la mujer en la España contemporánea

Desde tiempos inmemorables la representación cultural de la mujer ha estado sometida a la mirada masculina, que la ha cosificado, sexualizado, cuando no vilificado. A pesar de los grandes avances, al menos formales, para la mujer en España desde los años 80, todavía no se la suele ver en posiciones de poder, en aquellos lugares donde se toman las decisiones sobre, por ejemplo, a quiénes publicar, qué tipos de programas se muestran en la televisión, qué tipo de mujer y de relaciones se visualizan, qué canciones se escuchan en la radio, etc.

Contemporary women writers have long been at the forefront of diverse conversations regarding race, society, and culture. From the works of legendary greats, such as Maya Angelou, Maxine Hong Kingston, Amy Tan, and Nawal Ed Saadawi, to the vibrant writing of Octavia Butler, Bernardine Evaristo, and Jenny Zhang, to name just a few, contemporary women authors have elucidated the wide and varied experiences of race across time, genre, and forms. Such work also frequently attends, in nuanced ways, to the lived experience and dynamics of intersectionality.

Since the year 2020, we humans have been mired in a dire situation that calls for new understanding, new responsibilities, and new approaches. First, the global ecological system has become exponentially more fragile and volatile: the climate is changing and the weather extreme, with rampant forest fires in California and Australia, floods in Southeast Asia, locust swarms in East Africa, and Arctic ocean oil spills to name a few. Second, the world economy is precarious, not only as it is devastated by the pandemic, but also as the stimulus packages invoke further inflation fears. Third, the U.S.-China competition makes sincere cross-culture conversation even more difficult, just as it is most pivotal.

Not so long ago, the links between Romanticism and vexed issues such as class, gender, or race, were barely explored within Romantic studies, despite that some Romantics embraced very eagerly what today sound like very unacceptable ideas such as the division of humankind into two primary racial groups:  the “culturally superior and beautiful Europeans” on the one hand, and the “Mongols”, namely “the ugly and inferior” Asians, Africans and Americans on the other.[1]
