Samuel Beckett's Dystopias

In Samuel Beckett's literary landscapes, readers and viewers find dark, barren spaces, crippled characters, haunting voices, and an overall sense that there is "Nothing to be done" (Waiting for Godot). The hope that appears in the presence of a boy or a few leaves on a tree is soon negated by the shake of a head or the absence of a long awaited arrival. Beckett's worlds are full of ashes and bones in which men and women are exiled and isolated; they are depleted, lonely spaces; they are dystopian spaces.

Assuming Gender
contact email: 

This special issue of Assuming Gender – an online, peer-reviewed academic journal from Cardiff University – seeks to explore the way gender is both presented and consumed through popular media and advertising. As Ann Herrmann points out in the article 'Shopping for Identities', commodities 'are characterised by their dual nature: material composition and symbolic meaning' (Herrmann 2002: 539). Consumer culture plays a significant role in constructing valid (and normative) identity categories with which consumers are encouraged to identify.

Popularized by Black and Brown marginalized populations in the United States, Hip Hop is a genre and culture now known around the world. From its early inception until now, Hip Hop has evolved into a culture and art form with its own Diaspora. During this, our fourth annual conference, we will explore how Hip Hop has reached a global audience and undergirded a whole new worldview for the last thirty years. This year, we will come to know Hip Hop in Diaspora.
