Constructivism in the USA:

The Little Review exhibitions
For Americans, the picture of Russian art in the first decade and a half following
the Revolution was chequered, and attempts to disseminate Soviet artworks in
books, articles, and exhibitions were sporadic and uneven. Too often a prerevolutionary rationale determined the discourse on post-revolutionary work
by situating the works within the amorphous and increasingly institutionalized
figure of modern art. Therefore the treatment of Constructivism, the most

Sólo con tu pareja: bringing the middle classes back to
Alfonso Cuarón’s filmmaking career has many parallels to that of
Guillermo del Toro and Alejandro González Iñárritu. All have made
a first film in Mexico, before consolidating their careers in the USA.
The difference between Cuarón’s trajectory and that of the other two
directors is that he is the only one who has returned to Mexico to make
a film – Y tu mamá también (2001) – and this transnational nationally
successful film came after
The anarchist anti-conscription
movement in the USA
Kathy E. Ferguson
This chapter explores the conceptual logic and political strategies
of the anarchist anti-conscription movement in the USA before
and during the First World War. Emma Goldman, Alexander
Berkman, Leonard Abbott, Rose Abbott, Stella (Cominsky)
Ballantine and Eleanor (Fitzie) Fitzgerald, to name only a few,
were actively involved in the Anti-Militarist League and later in
the No-Conscription League and the League for the Amnesty of
Political Prisoners. They forged an impressive alliance with
television screen as a plethora of technological advancements were marketed,
such as stereophonic sound and special widescreen formats. It is also at the
end of this period that sees not only the emergence of the video cassette
recorder (VCR) but also sees the conditions created for the development of a
new kind of multi-screen cinema, pioneered in the USA.

he Outreach and Community Service programme at the University of the
South in Sewanee, Tennessee, was created in 1989. It was part of a wave of
many such programmes started by US universities and colleges in the late 1980s and
early 1990s, bolstered by Boyer’s Scholarship Reconsidered report for the Carnegie
Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching (1990). The University of the South,
more commonly referred to as Sewanee, is a small (1,500 students), private

Christian religion and war have shared a common history for centuries.
There is, in fact, a long and entangled Christian discourse on ‘war’, even
though Christianity has repeatedly emphasised the founding myth of
it being purely a ‘peace religion’.1 Yet, since the late third century at the
latest, such self-perception has conflicted with different Christian concepts that justified war and thus made it conceivable. Most influential in
This article defends the view that Gothic Studies should encourage research on contemporary gothic youth cultures from a Cultural Studies point of view. This is justified on two grounds: research on these youth cultures is a unique chance to consider gothic as a living cultural practice and not just as textual analysis mostly disengaged from the present; on the other hand, these subcultures are currently under attack by the media and moral minorities, especially in the USA, and Gothic Studies could - maybe should - help correct this regrettable situation born of prejudice against, and ignorance about, Gothic itself. The article reviews the embarrassing position of the Gothic Studies researcher today as regards gothic youth cultures and calls for the reinforcement of the poor knowledge we have of the evolution of these cultures in the last 20 years.
