For an upcoming special section, the editors of PRS are seeking research that uses performance as an analytical method to understand the structure, function, use, meaning, or affects of classical religious, philosophical or religious texts.

The dense interplay between the multiple strands of eco-criticality in the current times that effectively exposes the ambivalences of state machinery’s eco-political intervention culminates in yielding ecosophical assemblages that works with a new ‘conceptual grammatology’, a grammatology that could be turned into an effective praxis to bring about multiple forms of eco-healing and create effective ways of existing in a ‘qualitative diversity’ beyond anthropocent

Editors: Laura Álvarez Trigo (Universidad de Alcalá) and Erika Tiburcio Moreno (Universidad Complutense)
The Age of Enlightenment saw the emergence and development of science fiction as a way of imagining different futures and of making sense of the world and humanity through scientific and technological advances. This macro genre not
In his book Animals on Television (2017), Brett Mills states that "representations of animals often function to highlight cultural understandings about what it is to be human." Nonhuman animals have been unwilling objects of the human gaze: humans have been exploiting animals (real and imagined) on the basis, and the attendant continued perpetuation, of self-assigned human superiority and centrality. This anthropocentrism is also why humans primarily define animals, their agency, the

‘Unfeeling’ in relation to literature may evoke thoughts about depictions of cold-hearted characters, or repressive worlds in dystopian literature. It may also evoke the supposedly “emotionless character of disinterested responses to art and literature, and of data-driven distant reading techniques. Affect and reader-response theories tell us that our feelings matter when we read, but which feelings have historically been prioritised and at whose expense?
UCL's Moveable Type Journal is seeking reviews of poetry, novels, plays, film adaptations, and critical monographs relating to the theme of unfeeling. Ideally, texts for review should have been published in the last two-three years.
Suggestions for review:
Cathy Park Hong’s Minor Feelings (2020)
Patricia Lockwood’s Nobody is Talking About This (2021)
*Selected papers will be published in a post-conference volume with ISBN.
Life-history approach occupies the central place in conducting and producing (auto)biographical and (auto)ethnographic studies through the understanding of self, other, and culture. We construct and develop conceptions and practices by engaging with memory through narrative, in order to negotiate ambivalences and uncertainties of the world and to represent (often traumatic) experiences.
Caste and caste-based practices are understood to be predominantly associated with the Indian subcontinent and broadly Hinduism. This structural, exclusionary process operates on entrenched, subconscious notions of heritable hierarchy, trans-historically modified by capitalism, environmental progressions, liberal democratization, globalization and other complex socioeconomic rocesses. The changing dynamics of these complex social patterns are equally susceptible to postmodern discourses of ca
