As both a black woman and a modern literary celebrity, Toni Morrison reshaped the ways that this country conceived of what Literature could be aesthetically and achieve politically. Her recent passing grants us the opportunity to not only reflect on the immense legacy of her fiction, but also her critical and theoretical work through which she addressed both the presence and erasure of the African Diaspora throughout the American literary tradition. Echoing Morrison’s claim that the &ld

inForma is the peer-reviewed journal of the University of Puerto Rico School of Architecture.

The journal publishes commissioned and peer-reviewed articles about architecture, urbanism, and spatial theory.
Urbanisation and urbanity have brought with them new cultures, artistic avenues and opportunities. The cultural perceptions of a city, its conception, its morality and its decline have become an arena for discussions of modernity, technology, crime, theology, nostalgia and much more.
Cities have been explored in cinema in a myriad manifestations: as a character, as a fetish, as a historical document, as a cultural monument of religiosity, as a symbol of liberalism, sexuality and decay
For the past two years, NeMLA’s keynote speakers have evoked the image of barbarians at the gates, and they are not alone in their use of this powerful image. Barbarians evoke a particular kind of wildness and danger that continues to resonate in popular culture, from the Dothraki and Wildlings in Game of Thrones, to the raiders in Parable of the Sower. In response to NeMLA 2020’s theme, “Shaping and Sharing Identities: Spaces, Places, Languages a

Vécue par certains comme une contrainte, la francophonie est appréhendée par d’autres comme un lieu de jubilation, où la maîtrise du français permet au sujet francophone de se déprendre de ses angoisses existentielles. Si l’écrivain Léon Laleau a éprouvé de la « souffrance » à « apprivoiser, avec des mots de France, ce cœur » qui lui est « venu du Sén&eacut

The face is a person’s foremost marker of identity. It harbors four of our five senses, and it is a crucial tool of communication. What goes on in the brain is performed on the stage that is the face, which can be read to a certain extent. It reveals but also conceals.
When the face is disfigured, all of its major capacities are affected. Moreover, because it is visible (in most cultures) and deviates from the norm, it often evokes shock, disgust, shunning, and ridicule in peopl

Cross-platform video games are now so popular as to constitute a financial threat to Netflix and other digital content services. One feature of many of these games is the ludic outlaw figure—found, for example, in the 2016 multiplayer Overwatch—that works to resist oppression within the game world. Because they signify popular
