Unchaining Sustainability: Working and Teaching for Regeneration and Resilience

Unchaining Sustainability: Working and Teaching for Regeneration and Resilience

In recent decades, U.S. institutions of higher education have in general moved toward supporting energy sustainability through course work and recycling programs, and many–from state universities and R1 institutions all the way across to private four-year colleges and associate degree schools– do a thoughtful job of introducing students to general concepts of broader but still diversity-light global sustainability. Although such courses and curricula, and the institutions that offer them, often link the effects of our ...

Beastly Modernisms

Whether it’s Virginia Woolf crafting a playful biography of Elizabeth Barrett-Browning’s dog in Flush, Clarice Lispector pondering the metaphysics of chickens in ‘The Egg and the Chicken’, or Marianne Moore with her elegant swans and pigeons, modernism is quite the menagerie of poetic animals.

The Horror of Relations: A Dark Philosophy of Interdependence Through Film

The Horror of Relations: A Dark Philosophy of Interdependence Through Film

The idea of interdependence is all around us. It results from the explosive growth of “ecological thinking” broadly construed. Fundamental to that idea is the view that, in some way, we’re all connected – to each other, to other organisms, and to our environments both analog and digital. And implicit here is the idea that this connectedness is a good and beautiful thing. Being connected well makes us stronger, healthier, more engaged, and ...

Queer Rurality

Appalachian communities have begun to explore their own identities, histories, oppressions, and deviant culture through oral histories, rural craft and art, online forums and facebook groups, zine culture, and scholarship. We propose an anthology which will act as a reclaiming of Appalachian and rural culture, an exploration of how these ‘weird’ and ‘deviant’ spaces and identities are constructed, and how this understanding of ‘Appalachian’ is sustained through scholarship, oral history, online communities such as Queer Appalachia or Weird Appalachia, and artistic practices. Current ...

Identity Broodings and Inter-Referential Pathways in Chicana/o Culture

Identity Broodings and Inter-Referential Pathways in Chicana/o Culture

The Chicano Movement (El Movimiento) in the late 1960s signaled the flow of multiple Chicana/o cultural expressions notably associated with an intricate matrix of socio-political claims for self-empowerment. Pledging to enhance the inter-referential connection(s) between the community’s subversive tactics and the vast cosmos of dispossessed groupings across the globe, Chicana/o writers, artists and thinkers have undertaken to decipher the enigmas of being-in-the-world by making visible numerous enveloping discourses of appropriation. For instance, the Mexican American literary ...

Through the Looking Glass: Snapshot Study of Selected Plays of Dattani

Through the Looking Glass: ‘Snapshot’ Study of Selected Plays of Dattani

Indian drama boasts an ancient nativity, born of the womb of Bharatmuni’s Natyashastra and embraced the Western dramatic tradition only with the coming of the Britishers. But that too happens to be an old story and in the 21st century Indian English dramatists are creating innovative and awe-inspiring plays that are amalgamation of the East and the West and at the same time transpasses all geographical boundaries in spirit and execution. Leading the plethora ...
