The two world wars of the first half of the twentieth century, World War I (1914-1918) and World War II (1939 - 1945), wrought extraordinary levels of destruction. Much of the artistic production during the period reflected grim and complicated realities, while a number of works of art of the post-war period played a role in the memorialization of the wars or served as critical commentary on the wars’ historical legacies. We are calling for article proposals that explore how art expressed the collective experience and memory of these two monumentally important global conflagrations and of conflicts that occurred in the interwar years.

In “The Effects of Superhero Sagas on Our Gendered Selves,” Elizabeth Behm-Morawitz and Hillary Pennell suggest that superheroes are most often represented across U.S. popular culture texts as “super gendered" in ways that impact how we as a culture “construct gender-related identities, attitudes, and beliefs” by affirming gender norms. While there has been much scholarly analysis of gender identity, presentation, and performance in relation to female superheroes, less critical attention has been paid to examining the cultural function of male superheroes in either affirming or challenging hegemonic masculinity.
