Transgender representation is currently at an all-time high. Whether it be in cinema, literature, or social networks, the visibility of trans individuals has tremendously increased. ​Changes in culture have allowed the transgender community to feel safer in coming forward with their stories, and therefore, this new movement has been pioneered by trans women, trans men, and non-binary individuals. For example, Lexie, the trans woman behind the ​popular Instagram account Agressively Trans (@aggressively_trans), published the book Une histoire de genres in February 2021. Petite fille, a 2020 documentary directed by Sébastien Lifshitz has won several prizes in various festivals.

I am seeking chapter submissions for an interdisciplinary edited collection concerning medieval and early modern medicine (from 1300-1700). The book will be interdisciplinary in nature. I am also especially interested in feminist and queer perspectives. It will focus on the influence of the ‘empirical turn’ (the scientific revolution of the 16th and 17th centuries) in Western medicine. It will include topics on any aspect of medicine, including but not limited to animal medicine, medical recipes, treatments, education, and facilities. The audience will be academic in nature, and I will seek publication with academic presses.

Cfp. Between XII.24 (November 2022), "Entering the Simulacra World: Aesthetic and Cultural Phenomenologies in Literature, Media, and the Arts"

This issue of Between aims to investigate the phenomenology of simulacra and their range of functions (conceptual, cultural, literary, aesthetic, and in the media). What is meant here by “simulacrum” is any artificial creature that imitates or replicates the outward form and/or behaviour of living beings, especially human beings. When it comes to artefacts produced by technology – conceived in its broader sense as techne, and therefore also including magic and art – the simulacrum reveals itself as marked by operational autonomy and a variable degree of awareness.

As these changes bring new challenges for the ways in which we categorize the boundaries of the urban and the definitions of the city, urban theorists have been condering the possibilities of the twenty first century bringing in post-urban stage.
