Echi Oltremare: Italy and the Mediterranean... Interactions and Intersections

At a time when Western values and Italianness are increasingly challenged by the forces of globalization, it is necessary to reconsider former epistemologies of space and ontologies of identity that now seem to be obsolete. In this context, the Mediterranean paradigm is (re)-emerging as a crucial framework through which Italy can re-examine its cultural traditions, while charting future paths based on the transnational exchanges with other cultures from the Mediterranean basin. Italian ...

Comparative Drama: The Audience as Player--Interactive Theater over the Years

This special issue of Comparative Drama, “The Audience as Player: Interactive Theater Over the Years,” seeks essays that explore plays and productions in which members of the audience are not just voyeurs in the house but participants, players in the onstage drama. This enhanced “role” for the audience has, surely, philosophical and aesthetic implications, not to mention practical consequence during an actual production.

The essays might range from the ...

Gender & Society- Special Issue on Gender and Religion

Gender is one of the most salient features of religious movements and religious institutions. Women are the majority of participants in religious life and they are increasingly significant actors in religious movements and politics. In many religious traditions, cultural and religious continuity hinges on gendered practices and sexual regimes. Many regions of the world are experiencing important transformations with respect to religion. For instance, China has seen an enormous upsurge in ...

Fears and Doubts of Not Belonging - Contributions on Cameroon Anglophone Literature

Arthur Miller once said, “Without alienation there can be no politics.” What he did not say is that being withdrawn or isolated exacts a severe price that cannot be measured in hard currency, considering that alienation is defined as emotional isolation or dissociation from others. We solicit chapters that approach alienation by examining why people are marginalized and why others are so eager to erect barriers rather than tear them down. The contribution could deal with, but is ...

The Traveler’s Eye: Narrating Dis/Location in 20th Century Travel Literature

The troubled 20th century has been labeled in many ways – one of which is “the century of migrations”. Temporary or permanent displacement, therefore, which is largely understood as an existential and epistemological condition embedded in its own material and metaphorical contexts, became one of the most fascinating subjects of (post)modern literature. The experience of travel in the largest sense reshapes personal identities and constructs new symbolic geographies that ...
