In a 2019 special issue of Pedagogy, Shawna Ross and Douglass Dowland coined the term “Anxious Pedagogies” to encourage approaches that would theorize the complex functions of anxiety in the classroom. Ross and Dowland posit the composition classroom as “a site of a seldom-described but sensorially palpable risk for both student and instructor” (510). Today, in the wake of a pandemic and skyrocketing rates of student and instructor anxiety, the humanities classroom has become an even riskier space in many ways, as global, local, political, and discipline-specific factors pose ever more explicit threats to the process of teaching and learning.

Through the centuries, humans have often shaped their social life by fictional moments and by taking part in fictional events: carnivals, representations, role plays, society plays, structured and semi-structured collective and singular moments where strictly coded contexts organize specific worlds and cultural dimensions. Play, in its wide acception and in its nature of artificial and coded mechanism, reflects historically the symbolic work by which human societies have elaborated, explained and organized the world.
Migration has been a constant feature of human history – “homo migrans” have existed ever since “homo sapiens”. Recently the themes of migration and integration have been especially topical in Europe and in other parts of the world due to massive and ever-growing movement of population. These spreading in-flows of immigrants have a strong impact on the social, economic and political climate of host countries, which are often highly challenged by the growing numbers and, therefore, have to review their immigration and integration policies to adjust to the contemporary processes of globalization. Integration is becoming more and more important at the time when migration is steadily growing and diversifying and is undergoing profound changes.

Is the 20 c. inheritance of literary criticism in its various modes of strong, ‘suspicious’, deep reading woefully inadequate for reckoning with the current and impending environmental crises, as many have claimed?
Critics declare that these crises demand entirely new concepts and ways of doing things, for example borrowing from the sciences and social sciences. But the practice of criticism, as opposed to its programmatic statements, remains remarkably consistent. This observation leads us to ask what kinds of environmental thinking established practices of criticism already perform. In other words, which concepts and methods that are not explicitly environmental are good for thinking environmentally?
Reproductive Justice across Disciplines and Demographics
Issues of procreation are the most troubling, disconcerting, confounding, divisive--and (therefore) interesting ones confronting feminism.
