The tension between adherence to traditional modes of expression, and experimentation has underlain modern Irish literature. Regarded as the epitome of Modernist experimental writing, James Joyce went so far in pushing the boundaries of what constituted prose as to become the object of criticism from such different commentators as Lukács and Pound, both of whom found fault with Joyce for the radicalness of experiment, particularly in Finnegans Wake. However, Joyce himself considered his work to be firmly set in the realist tradition. At a time when he was yet to publish his first collection of lyrics, W. B.

There is power in the written word. It can take us on journeys, convey the nuanced as well as the palpable, and compel us to feel. It can also empower us to act, to challenge, and to overcome.

Writing can be a form of claiming – or reclaiming – our time, our space, and our voice. It’s an opportunity to fight feelings of powerlessness —Susan Taylor

The Vernon press is issuing the following call for contributions to the collective volume

William Shakespeare: Tensions and Tempest

Though scholars indicate a few later works, The Tempest can be read as Shakespeare’s last play, and as such, sums up the various interests, concerns and themes that inform his work, be it the magic of peripheral spaces, the rivalries for power, or the social relationships that bind family and class. In short, The Tempest is Shakespeare’s Testament.

Chapter contributions are welcomed for an edited scholarly volume on the global impact of streaming services, crucially Netflix. The American company Netflix has, owing to its pioneering role, become synonymous with the world of streaming. The growing list of “Netflix Nations” (to invoke the title of Ramon Lobato’s 2019 book) means that there are only a few territories such as China, Iran, North Korea, and Syria that remain outside its purview. In recent years, a number of streaming giants have emerged in the Western world– mostly notably, Amazon and Disney+ –that compete tightly within international markets.

It has been around 40 years since Vito Russo wrote the pioneering book The Celluloid Closet (1981) that catalogued the long painful history of gay representation in Hollywood film. The Celluloid Closet was produced during the AIDS epidemic and was one of many texts that drew attention to the lack of gay representation both before the 1980s and catalogued the changes that were occurring in gay media representation at the time. Lesbian representation has been historically represented by invisibility though was also impacted by the change in representation that the AIDS epidemic started. Gay male representation was always problematic while lesbians were invisible and heavily affected by the stigma of AIDS at this time.

Gaslighting in Global Victorian and Neo-Victorian Culture

The term “gaslighting” has reentered the popular lexicon with a vengeance in recent years, appearing in countless news stories and opinion pieces on the subjects of sex, race, politics, medicine, and emotional abuse. It refers to “the experience of having your reality repeatedly challenged by someone who holds more power than you do,” as one Washington Postcolumn recently articulated it. Such pieces often note that the term is drawn from a specific twentieth-century source text: George Cukor’s 1944 film Gaslight, based on Patrick Hamilton’s 1938 play of the same name, which tells the story of a sadistic husband actively working to make his wife believe she is losing her mind.

“Politics is commonly viewed as the practice of power or the embodiment of collective wills and interests and the enactment of collective ideas.”

“The syntagma ‘politics of literature’ means that literature ‘does’ politics as literature…”

Work in Displacement Studies lies at the intersection of numerous interdisciplinary fields, such as migration studies, refugee studies, border studies, Indigenous studies, Africana studies, Food Studies, coastal studies, human rights, urban studies, data studies and Latinx studies. Building on that body of literature and the NEH/SSRC working group on “Converging Displacements” at Virginia Tech, this reader takes a critical approach to displacement studies. Critical displacement studies is a methodology examining disruptions of displacement where community access and contribution is essential. An increasingly common experience, being uprooted from place occurs across a range of geographic and temporal scales.

The Renaissance is universally acknowledged to be a crucial moment in Europe for the development of vernacular national languages which begin to establish their prestige alongside Latin. Historical linguists have focused on the many interesting peculiarities of the European vernaculars in this period, such as the high degree of spelling fluctuation, (non-)lexicalisation of words, phonological and morphological adjustments, semantic shifts, etc. When it comes to diachronic approaches to corpus linguistics, however, scholars are sometimes sceptic about the possibilities offered by machine-readable samples of both literary and non-literary texts belonging to the Renaissance.

To say that Ukraine has a complicated relationship with Russia is an understatement: the region was under direct rule in the imperial period, experienced a period of freedom after 1917, followed by repressive rule through large periods of the Soviet era, and then regained independence in 1991. Now, Ukraine faces Russian hostility and the violation of its territorial integrity, which began in February 2014 with the occupations of the Crimea and Donbas region.

At times, there is a dissonance between what is considered the ‘original’ narrative and its adapted form. For example, the release of Neil Gaiman’s adaptation of his own work, The Sandman, caused controversy amongst those who had read the comic book series, mainly for the casting decisions of actors such as Kirby Howell-Baptiste who played Death and Jennifer Coleman who played Constantine, as their original characters in the comics where white or/and male. In the same vein, Amazon’s recent adaptation of Tolkien’s work, Rings of Power, creates tensions between fans of the author and a modern audience who may not be familiar with the source material because of the discrepancies between the two versions.
