The Place of Memory and Memory of Place 

Edited by Olena Lytovka

     The concept of memory has been investigated across a wide range of academic disciplines from the natural and social sciences, to humanities and arts. However what yields most significant benefit to the study of memory is placing it within an interdisciplinary context. The Place of Memory and Memory of Place aims to spark new conversations across the field of memory and place studies. The topics discussed include non-linearity and spatial thinking, memory and trauma, historic sites and collective (non)memories, cyberspace and talking places, literary landscapes and spatial representations of the Other.

Spatiality and Temporality: An Interdisciplinary Approach

Edited by Ingrida Eglė Žindžiuvienė

     This volume discloses diverse and interdisciplinary views on spatiality and temporality – two very broad concepts. The first one suggests the endless boundaries (both in time and space), while the latter points to fragility and brevity. The articles analyse major aspects of these concepts and discuss their presence in all spheres of life: philosophy, culture, globalization, urbanity, literature, music and many others. The reader will be definitely involved into answering the questions posed by the authors of the articles: What is the relationship between spatiality and temporality? What is their role in contemporary life or the past? What is our understanding of these two concepts?

Narratives of Displacement

Edited by Olena Lytovka

      The book seeks to explore the narratives of displacement and to demonstrate the validity of a cross-disciplinary approach which brings together the historical, cultural, social and literary expertise in the handling of text. It particularly focuses on time and space representations and on treatment of the theme of cultural ambivalence and identity conflict. In the following chapters of the book, the subject of displacement is regarded as both a migration, voluntary or forced, and a sense of being socially or culturally “out of place”

Gender (In)Equality: Literary, Linguistic, And Artistic Responses To Gendered Dominance

Edited by Nikica Mihaljević

     Focusing primarily on the expression of role, position and rights of women from literary, linguistic, and artistic perspectives, this collection of academic papers however covers a heterogeneous array of topics. The contributors deal with both past and contemporary societies, as well as socio-political structures at power in the analyzed contexts. What seems to stand out as being of crucial importance to literary and artistic responses to often institutionalized gender-based social injustice is the indisputable power of language and art, as stimuli of cultural and political changes, i.e. as empowerment tools and a powerful mechanism of resistance to masculinized (hi)stories. But mostly, this book discusses the persistence of gender roles and challenges the possibility of degendering literary texts, as well as speeches, leadership, etc. Therefore, while examining the perception and the stereotypes related to ‘gender roles’ and while investigating the changes regarding the role of women in society, Gender (In)Equality: Literary, Linguistic, and Artistic Responses to Gendered Dominance uncovers the gendered aspects of the society as well as it calls attention to the question to which extent the society is still shaped by gender.
