From the early Atari single-player arcade game Outlaw to more recent videogames such as Activision Blizzard’s multiplayer Overwatch, modern digital outlaws have long been popular characters in gaming culture. These characters often work to resist authoritarianism within their respective gaming worlds, and they frequently evoke much older outlaw representations, such as the Robin Hood of medieval ballads, by embodying popular definitions of justice and communal welfare.

Relgion and the Marketplace
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 1, 2020

We are seeking one or two chapters to fill out our edited collection Religion and the Medieval and Early Modern Global Marketplace (already under contract with Routledge). Ideally the chapter(s) would provide a case study that addresses some intersection of economy (market, exchange) and religion (faith, sprituality) in medieval and/or early modern Africa. How did matters of faith enter the marketplace in a specific region of Africa? How did religion facilitate or provide resistance to the growing slave trade? How did religions adapt to changing markets?

"Ri/sentimenti". Emotions and language

updated: 
Monday, April 6, 2020 - 11:27am
Archives of emotions
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 15, 2020

The next issue of 'Archives of emotions' aims to explore the interactions between language and emotions. By 'language', we generally mean a system of signs. Since ancient times, rhetorical strategies of emotions have been known and practiced. We will, therefore, ask ourselves how literature, in each age, manages to represent, simulate, reproduce and arouse, through written and oral language, the experience of emotion and its cognitive, physiological and psychological bases. Possible subjects for the essays collected in this issue could also concern the performing and visual arts, dance, cinema, and theater and their respective languages.
