The nineteenth century witnessed critical shifts in the perceptions of time and space. Developments in geology and biology suggested new, expansive notions of space and time, resulting in geological time scales and the concept of deep time. Meanwhile, as the introduction of Greenwich Mean Time standardized railway schedules, rail travel itself rendered the experience of space flexible as journey times decreased. Simultaneously, mathematical developments like non-Euclidean and higher-dimensional geometries initiated new ways of measuring space. How did nineteenth-century literature respond to these changing perceptions and experiences of space and time?

The World Blown Open: Open Access, Open Education, and Open Knowledge for an Uncertain Future (an Edited Collection)

Collection Rationale

In his notable work, Deschooling Society, Ivan Illich posited that schooling in modern societies and economies needed a radical reimagining:

"A good educational system should have three purposes: it should provide all who want to learn with access to available resources at any time in their lives; empower all who want to share what they know to find those who want to learn it from them; and, finally, furnish all who want to present an issue to the public with the opportunity to make their challenge known" (75-76).

FINAL CALL - special issue on 'Consuming Gender' inviting abstracts

deadline for submissions:

Call for Papers: ‘Consuming Gender’

 

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.
