Volume 22.1 Special Edition: Teacher Education in Wales – a reform journey available end of May 2020

With the support of Welsh Government, we are delighted to announce the Wales Journal of Education has converted to a platinum Open Access journal, free of charge, bilingual and available to read in digital format for anyone, anywhere in the world, with no author-facing charges.

The Wales Journal of Education aims to appeal to researchers, policy-makers and practitioners who share the common goal of achieving excellence in education in Wales. We welcome articles that relate to education in Wales, but also materials of a broader significance, including comparative studies and international contributions and, from 2020, practitioner-led articles.

Plants in Science Fiction

Speculative Vegetation

Edited by Katherine E. Bishop, David Higgins and Jerry Määttä

‘Plants in Science Fiction demonstrates that science fiction and ecocriticismhave much to say to each other. By considering “speculative vegetation”, of course, we learn much about our own lives in the present moment on Earth.’
- Scott Slovic, Editor-in-Chief, ISLE: Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and Environment

Jane Williams (Ysgafell)

Gwyneth Tyson Roberts

‘Ysgafell has at last been granted what she deserves in this finely detailed and highly readable critical biography, which rescues from oblivion an accomplished and versatile writer, and rediscovers for a new generation of readers a markedly intelligent and unconventional Welsh Victorian.’
- Emerita Professor Jane Aaron, University of South Wales

Kant and the Theory and Practice of International Right

Georg Cavallar

‘When the first edition of this book came out just over two decades ago it quickly became a must-read for anyone who was interested in Kant’s ideas about the theory and practice of international relations. This new edition brings it up to date, and adds material that will make it a necessary reference in the decades to come.’
- Professor John Christian Laursen, University of California, Riverside

A Century of Weird Fiction, 1832-1937

Disgust, Metaphysics, and the Aesthetics of Cosmic Horror

Jonathan Newell

A Century of Weird Fiction, 1832–1937 explores the aesthetics of the unthinkable in weird fiction, tracing a twisted entanglement of ontology and aesthetics. Drawing on recent speculative philosophy and affect theory, the study argues that weird fiction exploits the viscerality of disgust to confront readers with the intertwinement of the human and nonhuman.

Hester Lynch Thrale Piozzi

Michael John Franklin

‘This is an eminently readable compact biography of a particularly colourful late eighteenth-century personality. Each of the various phases of Hester Salusbury/Thrale/Piozzi’s life is presented in detail, with full academic citations and a sustained attempt at providing the social and historical contexts of her changing times. As such, the book constitutes a welcome addition to the Writers of Wales series, and one which is likely to prove a useful resource for students and interested lay readers alike.’
Emeritus Professor Jane Aaron, University of South Wales

- Emeritus Professor Peter Fitting, University of Toronto
