Humans – Artis Natura, vol. 2, n° 1 – Winter 2018
The editorial committee at Artis Natura is searching for emerging artists and researchers to contribute to a thematic issue on its cultural online platform. This project has taken the form of a blog reviewed and published by an editorial committee, where researchers, artists, and writers can share reflections on the reciprocal relationship between humans and nature.
This third issue will focus on humans. The questioning of anthropocentrism, stimulated by the realities of the current environmental crisis, has raised concerns about the space that humanity occupies in the natural world.
The peer-reviewed, online and open access journal Studies in Testimony is currently accepting submissions for an expected publication date of April 2019. The call for submissions is intentionally broad in nature, allowing for submissions that look at emerging areas of academic interest, in addition to those of continued and lasting relevance from a wide range of academic disciplines including, but certainly not limited to, literature, critical theory, history and psychoanalysis.
Subject areas could include, but are not limited to:

This anthology is seeking to define the new kinds of heroines that science fiction/fantasy films and television are producing right now (it may be split into two collections between these types). Multiple proposals are fine (certainly, non-genre programs are doing the same, but for the time being the scope will be limited to scifi and fantasy films). Hunger Games has been chosen as the cutting-off point – films and television should be later than 2012 and have significant heroines. Though the term is imperfect, these heroines will be described as fourth wave feminist – the authors in the collection can be the trendsetters who help define the term.
Recent developments in neo-Victorian cultural production seem to have at least partially acknowledged the steadfast urge put forth by actors, readers/viewers, and critics to include Black experiences in their storyworlds. TV formats like Penny Dreadful (2014-2016), The Frankenstein Chronicles (2015- ), Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell (2015-), and Peaky Blinders (2013- ) as well as films such as Wuthering Heights (2011), Belle (2013), and Lady Macbeth (2017) feature Black characters as part of their screenscape.
http://aim.org.pt/ojs/index.php/revista/announcement/view/38 This thematic dossier focuses on the critical appreciation of particular television series, while also examining the distinctive practice of writing television criticism. Our understanding of television criticism echoes that of Alex Clayton and Andrew Klevan in their edited volume The Language and Style of Film Criticism (Routledge, 2011). It is a form of writing that addresses television series “as potential achievements and wishes to convey their distinctiveness and quality (or lack of it)” (Clayton and Klevan 1).
