As twenty-first century scholars have continued the work of identifying, editing, and giving historical context to writings by early modern women, they have turned increasingly to larger questions of reading and interpreting these works—questions that have recently gained particular attention in Lara Dodds and Michelle M. Dowd's edited collection, Renaissance Formalism and Early Modern Women's Writings.

Representations and Visions of the Future in Modernist Literature

Several examples of literature produced from the late Victorian age narrate great concerns about the future and the destiny of humanity, concerns that would be significantly exacerbated in the twentieth century by the First World War, soon followed by the Second, the unspeakable savagery of Nazis, the nuclear detonations in Hiroshima and Nagasaki and, last but not least, by the terror of a nuclear apocalypse during the long Cold War. Modernism appears thus as a cultural movement that, as Vincent Sherry maintains, “works most indicatively within an imaginative concept of time interrupted”, of a time that presents itself basically as provisional and utterly deprived of a future.

Video games are more popular than ever, and gaming is an increasingly common hobby. However, gaming raises a number of complex ethical issues. Perhaps the most familiar is the question of whether violent video games are morally appropriate or not. But beyond questions about the morality of gaming and what is appropriate content we might wonder what the overall value of gaming is. Gamers are quite passionate about their hobby, and with concerns about gaming-disorder on the rise, it is reasonable to ask what redeeming value video games have. What role, if any, can video games have in the good life?

Multiculturalism is arguably a fundamental aspect of contemporary western society that has garnered diverse reception. It has been the source of diversity (positive) and social disunity (negative). Multiculturalism stands as the most recent development of race relations in ethnic studies; therefore, to study the contemporary theory of race, it is vital to consider cultural diversity as a constitutive aspect of that theory. Multiculturalism is not only a descriptive or even normative concept; instead, it is more appropriate to consider it as a pragmatic concept.
