Literature – New Release

Issue #4 (Winter 2017): "Screened Alterities."

On_Culture: The Open Journal in the Study of Culture announces the release of their fourth Issue (Winter 2017): "Screened Alterities."

The fourth issue of On_Culture focuses on the concept of "alterity." Guest-edited by Danae Gallo González and Lyubomir Pozharliev, the contributions to this volume offer analyses of the (trans-)national audiovisual representation of "reality" in the newsreels of 1968 and shed new light on a variety of alterities. The volume features texts by scholars from diverse fields in the humanities and the social sciences and contributes to the broader field of newsreel scholarship by bringing together examples from countries that have generally been excluded from English-language academic literature.
