Marilynne Robinson has written widely-acclaimed novels and essays that explore the relationship between religion and culture. Marilynne Robinson Society at the 2019 American Literature Association (ALA) Conference is soliticing proposals that examine how recent developments in post-secular studies can illuminate Robinson’s religious vision. Jurgen Habermas, Talal Asad, Charles Taylor, Jared Hickman, Tracy Fessensden, among other scholars, have led us to reconsider the secularization thesis and the ways in which it has shaped narratives of modernity. We ask how Robinson’s investigation of faith is especially relevant to the growing field of postsecular studies.

The Journal of Historical Fictions,journal of the international Historical Fictions Research Network, is currently accepting submissions.
In 2005, Jenny Rice suggested that we might move away from notions of rhetorical discourse as situated in a fixed place and time, with a specific aim and audience, towards an ecological view of rhetoric, where circulating texts transform rhetors, audiences, spaces, and events. Like biological ecologies, rhetorical ecologies are fluid rather than fixed, permeable rather than bounded. The Clemson University English Department invites graduate students from all disciplines to join us as we explore ecologies at the 2019 Margins Conference.

Much has been said about the state and failure of Black relationships in North America. Books like “Is Marriage for White people” by Ralph Richard Banks, gain traction by highlighting that Black women are three times as likely to remain single as white women. Research has shown that absent fathers produce a cultural cycle of parental absenteeism for Black men and women, and the repetitive traits that lead to divorce are environmental rather than genetic. Bottom-line, there are countless barriers and hurdles stacked against black relationships. Many couples struggle with the outside pressures that racism and social discrimination present.
Transcendentalism: Men and Women Conversing
In a collaborative call from the Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Margaret Fuller and Louisa May Alcott Societies, we invite proposals for papers to be presented at the next Thoreau Gathering in Concord, MA (July 11-14, 2019) on dialogues between men and women of the Transcendentalist movement. When Emerson looked back at Transcendentalism, in “Historic Notes of Life and Letters in New England,” he recalled men and women who read adventurously, became friends, formed a club for conversation, and launched a magazine. They were talkers as well as solitaries. Across the apparent divide of gender, what did they have to talk about?

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD: A HKS SYMPOSIUM While the word “community” is more often than not suffused with a benevolent glow, connoting the virtues purportedly associated with groups of people—shared values and heritage, constancy and solidarity—“neighbourhood” is a term that has a more ambiguous, even troublesome, valency. Neighbourhoods, depending on one’s point of view, can be good or bad, welcoming or hostile, safe or dangerous, dull or vibrant.
