This panel is interested in critiques of narratives and representations of spaces and technologies of care, including the medicalization of homes, disabling spaces in the home, examinations of how bodied and disembodied artificial intelligence may change geographies of care, deterritorialization of long-term care facilities, the cosmopolitanized spaces of care in hotels, the gendered and racialized politics of service industries, and the promotion or promise of care through mediated forms of print and digital technologies.
This panel will explore the many existing and potential connections between video games and the literary world. Many leading games have explicitly referred to works of literature, either within their storyworlds or in their marketing (for instance, Bioshock’s interactive rebuttal of Ayn Rand’s ideas). More broadly, emerging video game theory has often defined itself either by analogy or by opposition to existing concepts from literary theory. Book genres such as the choose-your-own adventure format (eg. Steve Jackson’s Sorcery! series) have also anticipated video gaming, and in turn been remastered as games using the same text and narrative structure.

HUNGER AND WASTE
Volume 40, Number 1, Spring 2022
Issue Editor: Isabelle Meuret
This issue of Literature and Medicine will interrogate expressions of hunger and waste in both literary and biomedical contexts.
Hunger is a physiological disposition, a daily preoccupation, and a metaphor for desire. On another scale, global hunger—leading to malnutrition and starvation—affects hundreds of millions living in poverty. As for waste, the dearth, careless use, or squandering of resources, together with climate change and other environmental challenges, have raised new concerns about food supplies and unequal access.

the International Conference on Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts. Taking place on 25 – 27 June 2021 in Vienna, Austria, ICSHA aims to contribute to the future of social sciences and humanities and arts by bringing together leading scholars, academics, and researchers in the field.
Developed on the principles of open exchange of information and cross-border learning, this conference is designed to facilitate heated discussions and provide inspiration to the network that’s shaping the direction of one of the most important fields of social development.
The Science and Technology area of NEPCA encourages proposals for presentations that explore the relation of science and technology (broadly defined) to popular culture and to American culture. We are particularly interested in putting science, technology, culture, and the humanities in conversation with one another. How are science and technology represented in popular culture? How do we use popular culture to understand science and technology? And how do we use science and technology to understand narratives, art, and culture? What do we gain, what do we risk by approaching science and technology from the lens of the humanities, the humanities from the lens of science, by putting these disciplines in conversation with each other?

Since ancient times, mirrors have been viewed as place where the dual worlds of soul and self merge. In ancient Mexico, polished obsidian mirrors were viewed as magical portals through which sorcerers traveled to reach the world of the gods. The fictitious mirror of 18th-century author, Oliver Goldsmith, revealed the inner workings of the mind rather than the surface. In the 21st century, our reflections may obscure rather than uncover the truths we once searched for. Through technology, we can recreate ourselves and the world around us. We see our altered, perfected reflections in our photos, on our web cams, and in advertising. Images may come to show not necessarily our realities, but visions of the world that we prefer.
