Issue 27: Platform Humanities

Building on a conference on The Digital Condition and Humanities Knowledge, this issue addresses itself to the intersections between digital technology and the humanities. Each of the contributors asks how digital tools and platforms have impacted their field of study or been woven into their research or teaching. The result is a rich exploration of the ways digital platforms can enrich the humanities at a time when these are under serious threat.

Featuring contributions from Crisálida Bermúdez, Nancy Bonilla, Io Chaviara, Lina Cortés, Hanne Cottyn, Carlos Cuellar, Costas Gousis, Athena Hadji, Rodolfo Hernández, Danae Karydaki, Michalis Kastanidis, Styliani Lepida, Regina Mantanika, Santiago Martínez, and María Santos.

Issue 26: On Disability

The field of Disability Studies is flourishing. Over the past few decades, it has generated a truly interdisciplinary body of theoretical, sociological, historical, and critical scholarship that has not only done much to advance our understanding of disability itself but that has also made major contributions to other fields, including legal studies, political theory, ethnography, and sociology. This ISRF Bulletin aims to bring together and celebrate the contributions ISRF Fellows have made to the field of Disability Studies.

Featuring contributions from Alice Baderin, Beverley Clough, Elizabeth Evans, Steve Graby, Craig Jones & Alison Wilde.

Issue XXV: Living with Crisis

How are today’s crises experienced? How do historical crises continue to echo into the present? And can the study of past and present crises offer glimpses of resilience, solidarity, or even hope? Following Sarah Marie Hall’s provocative suggestion that crises do not just shape people’s lives but also have lives of their own, this edition of the ISRF Bulletin invites readers to think of crisis as itself a complex, shifting, indeed living thing.

Featuring contributions from Sarah Marie Hall, Eleanor Jupp, Despoina Livieratou, Lauren Martin, and Lisa Taylor.
