Danielle Crawford and Kara Hisatake / PAMLA 2016

However, the topic that clearly emerges is 'gender'. Gender has always been a debatable topic of discussion since time immemorial and in times when glass- ceilings are breaking fast it would be worth to compare and contrast the concept and role of genders as depicted in Shakespeare's plays to the concept of gender as it eThe year 2016 marks the 400th death anniversary of one of the greatest English playwright William Shakespeare.

Stephannie S. Gearhart and Jonathan Chambers

We are currently seeking original essays for "Slow Down," a collection of articles written by arts and humanities scholars across disciplines, which together argue that higher education has been compromised by its uncritical acceptance of our culture's standards of productivity, busyness, and speed. Our project is inspired by the slow movement, which was made popular by Carlo Petrini's Slow Food movement and has since been adopted by many others concerned about the quality of life in a fast world.

My Body, My Bowels, My Bathroom - Call for Papers, Poems, Art, and more

Journal of Reproductive Justice

Enough is enough! The Journal of Reproductive Justice is pulling together an anthology of works categorized as a contemporary commentary on discriminatory legislation that affects the LGBT+ community, most specifically our trans and non-binary siblings. This project, "My Body, My Bowels, My Bathroom" focuses specifically on the exclusion of noncis, nonbinary, and nonconforming folks/folx from restrooms based upon their identities, reverting to the archaic and demeaning practice of forcing people to conform to an arbitrary binary system that assigned their gender at birth.

UPDATE - Lands of Milk and Honey: The Spatial Turn in Religion

In his 1967 "Des Espace Autres" Michel Foucault wrote that in contrast to literary and cultural criticism's previous privileging of history, periodization, and time that "The present epoch will perhaps be above all the epoch of space." In the past generation scholars working across a wide variety of the humanities including literary theory, history, philosophy, cultural studies and religious studies have confirmed Foucault's prediction.
