The present call for papers aims to examine the multifaceted depictions of social, psychological, historical, and contemporary values and fundamentals within modern literature, media, culture, and theory. The objective is to discern the ambivalent emotional underpinning of the social sphere, group dynamics, and interpersonal relationships, characterized by a blend of human values and needs. The exploration will delve into the rhetoric and politics surrounding cultural values and beliefs, while also exploring diverse theoretical frameworks.

Authors are expected to provide a thought-provoking analysis of their chosen texts, illuminating diverse cultural perspectives.
