Special Issues

Each special issue presents a single thematic focus and recombines articles from the Connotations archive to allow for new perspectives and deeper investigation of specific topics. They include, for example, the conference proceedings of the biennial International Connotations Symposia or issues interested in single authors, texts or discourses.
