Order Out of Chaos: Conflict and Resolution in Medieval Culture

Many points of conflict in medieval culture have been the focus of study, including ideological conflicts like that between chivalry and Christianity or between the Church and various reformers, both internal and external. Debates about the use of the vernacular as opposed to classical or dominant languages or about the relative merits of different genres are often imbedded in literary works. Clashes between classes or between political entities help create an idea of the Middle Ages as a time of constant conflict. At the same time, these conflicts have led to growth and development, the changes that lead society in new directions.

Encyclopedia of Spanish Film: 1975-Present

Sunday, March 20, 2016 - 10:04pm
Salvador Jimenez Murguia, PhD Akita Internaitonal University

This volume takes up the topic of Spanish Cinema from the Post-Franco period beginning in 1975 to the present. Covering over 400 entries that include films, producers, directors, actresses, actors, genres, and critical interpretations, the breadth and depth of this volume may generate some highly significant material for both academics, as well as general audiences.

The first of its kind (indeed there are no other encyclopedias that cover this topic anywhere on the market), the Encyclopedia of Spanish Film would be a timely pop cultural companion to both Spanish/Iberian Studies and Film Studies.

The upcoming issue of Seismopolite Journal of Art and Politics will discuss art's relationship with political ecology: What role does art have to play – if any – under the precariously situated human and environmental consequences of neoliberalism and its political geography? Which potentials can be found in locally situated artistic discourses and re-imaginations of political ecology, for influencing global discourses on climate change? How can the dialogue between culturally and historically different ecological imaginaries and eco-philosophical traditions be significant in an era marked by unprecedented threats to the environment?
