We would like to invite humanities and social science scholars to contribute to our edited volume, ‘Oceans Seas and Shorelines in Film’, to be published in 2024/25 by Routledge in the Oceans Seas and Shorelines: a natural and cultural environmental history series.
Film is the most influential of all of the cultural media, combining powerful audio and visual formulas to recreate the world for the purpose of telling a story. It implicitly and explicitly conveys important aspects of real and imagined social change and exchange within a variety of environmental contexts, but the role of the environment and the impact of human agency on the environment has rarely been a focus of critical enquiry.

In 1950, the pioneering mathematician and computer scientist Alan Turing asked the world: “Can machines think?”
Published in his article in Mind when he was 38 years old, Turing’s question emerged from a life of relentless imagination. By then, Turing had applied his brilliance to help the allies win World War II and revolutionized computing—creating the foundation for much later developments in AI technologies and machine learning. His intrepidness included living as a gay man in a society that would criminalize and cause him irreparable harm for it.

This is a Call for Papers for an online workshop titled Laughing in the Face of Evil: Humorous Perspectives on Perpetrators in Contemporary American Literature and Popular Culture. The workshop asks what humor can contribute to our understanding of perpetrators by examining a selection of works from contemporary American literature and popular culture. Does humor help demythologize certain perpetrators whose international fame turned them into quasi-mythical figures? Can the ownership of humorous content about a traumatic situation or process endured by a specific marginalized community be transferred to other communities?
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way humans behave personally and interact socially at the interpersonal, local, national and global levels. Thus, various cultural practices are also modified, both in the form of daily activities and in the form of ritual, ceremonial and formal practices, including the prevalence in the secular, religious, artistic and institutional realms in various fields. Policies and procedures for carrying out various activities in various sectors have also been reorganized to take into account the health protocols that apply in different jurisdictions.
