Be it Ethics studies proper, Bio-ethics, Animal studies, Feminism, Postcolonialism or Ecocriticism, most popular trends in the Humanities have to do with the ethical, with what could be dubbed “the New Humanism”. In the fourth issue of the online journal In Spatele Blocului (Romanian)/Behind the Block (, we accept papers and art that have to do with any of these topics or other themes related to the study of the ethical and humanism.
