Scholarly Editing, begun again after a four year hiatus, publishes essays on the theory, practice, and pedagogy of scholarly editing, as well as reviews and micro-editions of understudied authors and texts that reflect our diverse and multifaceted cultural heritage. The journal intends to represent contributions from all countries and cultures and across disciplines, including but not restricted to educators, researchers, scholars, historians, archivists, curators, editors, information professionals, students, and digital humanists.
Jennifer Ackerman’s national bestseller The Genius of Birds (2016) highlights how birds and humans, while on seemingly different evolutionary paths, have coincided in interesting ways as both have risen to meet the challenges of nature (The Genius of Birds 12). Birds have consistently been alluded to in literature, dating back to the Greeks, and the proposed edited collection Avian Aesthetics seeks to deepen the awareness of the importance of birds in the literary and popular imagination while simultaneously focusing on how the human vision of birds has altered in an age of Animal Studies, species-ism, and climate change.

The proposed anthology aims to compile essays from various disciplines in the field of South Asian Studies. The compilation introduces an academic discourse on cultural studies about the region. Cultural Studies is predominantly contemporary in focus in its academic orientation. Contemporaneous is also about how the past appears in its very connections with the present ideas and facts. In the context of the above propositional statements the focus of the book is about the nature of Cultural Studies in South Asia.

To the surprise of analyst expectations, at the end of 2019 Netflix recorded a record-high growth in subscribers and revenue outside of the United States, specifically in its Asia-Pacific region. The growth in this region is attributed to the establishment of regional offices and the commissioning of local productions, the success of which travels even further afield in the wealth of pan-Asian content making its way into Netflix’s global catalogue.
We find ourselves at an exciting moment as scholars of contemporary Irish writing – Irish literature is, as the Irish Times points out, ‘having a moment’.
As some commentators have noted, both established and emerging female writers are disproportionately represented in the thriving contemporary Irish literary scene. Canonical figures like Anne Enright and Edna O’Brien continue to publish new work. The last two winners of the Sunday Times Audible Short Story Award – Danielle McLaughlin and Niamh Campbell – are Irish women, both of them relatively new to writing. In 2018, Anna Burns became the first woman from Northern Ireland to win the Man Booker Prize.

Dadlez, André Spicer, Eldar Sarajlic, Jörg Meibauer, Craig Dalton, Martin Harry Turpin, Vladimir Alexeev, and many others. We are witnessing a rise of interest in earlier concepts such as fakery, inauthenticity, Deepities (as defined by Daniel Dennett), fake news, and post-truth.

Owing to a variety of reasons, a number of entries in London's East End: A Short Encyclopedia (under contract, McFarland) that were initially assigned have now become available. I am currently look for writers in a number of different categories, including people, film and literature, architecture, periodicals, major events, television, music, and art. Entries range from 50-2000 words with most following on the lower end of the spectrum. Interested individuals are urged to contact the editor for a contents list and style guide. A description of the encyclopedia appears below. Established scholars, early career researchers, and advanced graduate students—those who, in a US context, have passed their qualifying exams—are welcome.
This special issue of The Projector, edited by guest editor Jamie Ann Rogers, seeks submissions focused on contemporary community media as activist and aesthetic practices. In 2005, Kevin Howley described community media as “popular and strategic interventions into contemporary media culture committed to the democratization of media structures, forms, and practices.” In revisiting this definition 15 years later, the holistic aim of this special issue is to interrogate shifts in various community media making environments brought about in the past decade.
