We are currently seeking original essays for "Slow Down," a collection of articles written by arts and humanities scholars across disciplines, which together argue that higher education has been compromised by its uncritical acceptance of our culture's standards of productivity, busyness, and speed. Our project is inspired by the slow movement, which was made popular by Carlo Petrini's Slow Food movement and has since been adopted by many others concerned about the quality of life in a fast world.
There are countless books and authors that could be featured in the Rowman & Littlefield book series "Great Authors/Great Books" (www.rowman.com), edited by Bob Batchelor (www.bobbatchelor.com), Miami University.
The first book under contract in the series is Josef Benson's (Wisconsin-Parkside) analysis of J. D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye.

In his 1967 "Des Espace Autres" Michel Foucault wrote that in contrast to literary and cultural criticism's previous privileging of history, periodization, and time that "The present epoch will perhaps be above all the epoch of space." In the past generation scholars working across a wide variety of the humanities including literary theory, history, philosophy, cultural studies and religious studies have confirmed Foucault's prediction.
In the summer of 2015, the San Antonio Missions were designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the first in Texas, which provokes considerations of the complex inheritances from colonizers and native peoples--their languages, symbols, religions, architecture, modes of survival, and technologies.
