Dear all,

 We live in quite challenging times, therefore we have decided to extend our submission deadline by 1 month, until November 1st, 2020! HyperCultura, http://litere.hyperion.ro/hypercultura/ encourages, though not imposing, a comparative approach on the following areas: literature (print and hypertext), (not classic literature), media studies, film studies, visual and performative arts, teaching (all of the above). Subjects such as Postcolonialism-Decolonization, Gender Studies, etc, are welcome if they analyze one of the above mentioned area. (eg, Postcolonialism applied to a book, a film, etc).

Saturday, October 31, 2020

What is boredom and why do we feel bored? Recently, research on boredom has gained momentum in the scientific community, particularly in neuroscience and clinical psychology, where the symptoms of boredom and the behavioral patterns of the bored person are scrutinized (i.e. Boredomlab). Boredom, however, has been explored by philosophers for centuries and has been making a persistent appearance in the modern novel from nineteenth and century to present, in the moments of contemplation, waiting, idleness or complaints of bored characters.
