Boyhood Studies

An Interdisciplinary Journal

Volume 11, Issue 1

The authors in this issue of Boyhood Studies unanimously invite an appreciation of the many regional, temporal and contextual inflections of manliness-in-the-making: from Lord Baden-Powell’s and American contemporaries’ middle ages to late nineteenth-century Mexico’s French Third Republic, back to Baden-Powell and into the Great War, and back again to present day Mexico. This issue concludes with a series of book reviews.

The Cambridge Journal of Anthropology

Volume 36, Issue 1: Cognitive Disability

The articles in this special issue of The Cambridge Journal of Anthropology give new empirical accounts of the lives of people with cognitive disabilities and raise, simultaneously, urgent practical questions about the regimes of care and the fundamental character of human social life, and the scope and limitations of our understandings of central constituent features such as reason, freedom and responsibility.

Democratic Theory

An Interdisciplinary Journal

Volume 5, Issue 1

The articles in this issue of Democratic Theory range from an investigation of civic-political and cognitive participation as they play out in democratic theory to an analysis of the power of spectatorship in the democratic world.

European Comic Art

Volume 11, Issue 1: Spanish Comics, Part I
