Issue 15: Intimacy

In recent years, scholars from a broad range of disciplines have engaged the issue of intimacy. From these various efforts, at least one fact is clear: There is not one intimacy, but many. How do we describe these intimacies, and what complicates our descriptions? Intimacy is not simply synonymous with love, but it is different from friendship, and often quite different from sex. Or is it? Moreover, once we have discovered what intimacy is, where do we find it: in communities and nations, between or among friends, between or among lovers? How is intimacy negotiated and produced, maintained, or, often, lost?

The original CFP for this collection had the wrong word count for submissions. The corrected CFP follows:

Shelves and shelves have been filled with scholarly attention to baseball in American history, culture, literature, politics, etc.; likewise, shelves and shelves have been devoted to the study of humor (in American history, culture, literature, politics, etc.). Yet, surprisingly little has been said about the relationship between the two.

Proposed is a collection of new essays on the relationship between humor and baseball (in American history, culture, literature, politics, etc.). Topics might include, but certainly are not limited to:

Special issue of *Social Semiotics*:

Mediated Citizenship(s)

The concept of citizenship is under attack and revision from all sides.
Scholars, politicians and pundits alike decry the decline of participation in
conventional politics. Some view mass media as the culprits of growing
disenchantment among citizens. At the same time, recent years have also seen the
rise of new social movements and forms of activism, which involve new
generations of citizens. Global flows of capital, people, and media content
present new challenges to citizenship.
