CfP: Abortion across Borders: the case of the United Kingdom and North America

Issue 55 of the ILCEA journal will be devoted to the exploration of the links between sub-state borders and the right to abortion in two English-speaking areas – the United Kingdom and North America – which are characterized by decentralized governance systems: federal for Canada and the United States, devolved to national entities in the case of the UK. On June 24, 2022, the fact that the United States Supreme Court overturned  Roe v. Wade  did not only testify to the precarious nature of abortion laws, but it also provided a tangible example of the potential risks when their management is delegated to sub-state territorial entities, whether federal or regional. If the federal organization was originally designed to allow each state to preserve its cultural specificities, rarely in American history have these specificities reached such heights, resulting in “ideological divisions” that are difficult to reconcile, especially when it comes to the right to abortion. While in the 1960


Edited by Antonio Córdoba (Manhattan College) This edited volume will analyze how science fiction tropes are used used by non-Anglophone European filmmakers to explore national and global issues. As part of an increasingly productive scholarly appreciation of the ways in which speculative aesthetics help us understand our present and envision possible futures, this volume wants to ask a number of intriguing and valuable questions: How do the science fiction films from these societies tackle a wide range of modern and contemporary topics, from the actual possibility of human-made planetary apocalypse to the tension and global competiton of the Cold War, the neoliberal revolution, outer space exploration, globalization, new discourses on race, gender and sexualities, formulation of new transhumanist and posthumanist identities in the face of new technological and environmental discourses, global climate change in the Anthropocene, etc.?  Authors are invited but not required to take i

2nd Women in Pragmatism International Conference.  Department of Humanities.  University of Naples Federico II  .  27 and 28 June 2023   Organiser: Maura Striano   Contact: Maura Striano and Maria Miraglia. The Women in Pragmatism International Conference will take place at the University of Naples Federico II (Naples, Italy) on 27 and 28 June 2023.   Papers on any areas of pragmatism by women and non-binary people are welcome.

Convened by the world’s molecular biologists, the meeting was intended as a technical gathering to assess means of minimizing the risk of potential biohazards involved with novel recombinant DNA techniques before these had been fully developed (and before much was known about them), in order to lift a temporary and voluntary moratorium.
