What Explains Bias toward Immigrants? Evidence from a Conjoint Survey Experiment in Japan
The Department of English and American Studies at Tel-Aviv University is pleased to announce its 3nd Annual Science Fiction Symposium!
From the earliest days of science fiction, the subject of Time has provided fertile ground for exploration and imagination. Divergent histories, time travel, chronoclasms and the manipulation of past and future events are prevalent tropes of the genre.
We are seeking proposals relating to representations and discussions of Time in Science Fiction, in any medium (television, film, novels, comics/graphic novels, anime, video games, etc.).
In today’s complex world religious discourse is especially crucial, considering that secularism is expanding around the globe. We seek contributions on the representation of the Virgin Mary in World Literature and Art. Comparative approaches are always welcome. Religious and cultural literacy is important for domestic and international politics, the practice of peace, harmony, justice, and social prosperity. Thus, this edited volume will help diminish religious illiteracy. Contributions are welcome from scholars in various disciplines in the humanities.
