Special Issue of Christianity & Literature

 

“Literature of / about the Christian Right” 

Guest Editor: Christopher Douglas (University of Victoria)

 

The Times ‘best-seller’ list was misleading. Evangelical books were often outselling the Times’ best-sellers. But the paper did not bother to count sales in religious bookstores. The people hurt most weren’t evangelical authors (our books sold anyway); rather, the losers were Democratic Party leaders and other liberal readers of the ‘paper of record’ who were blindsided by subsequent events. The Times’ readers were not given a heads-up about what was going on ‘out there.’

Memory, Melancholy and Nostalgia

   In our modern world, which some have argued to be disjointed while immersing itself ever deeper in crisis, the turning back towards “the olden days” and the ensuing nostalgia constitute a noticeable phenomenon, both individually (the memory of biography) and collectively (the memory of History). Another important – and seemingly also quite noticeable – phenomenon  is the longing for something vague, indefinite or never existent.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, July 15, 2018

2018 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the protests of 1968, the moment in which several grassroots movements converged in their fights against social injustices and discrimination of race, class, gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. From the civil rights movement to the anti-Vietnam War movement, the women’s movement and the environmental movement, the events of the Global Sixties were the culmination of a broad wave of activism that continued into the mid 1970s and beyond. This period was also paramount in reshaping the role of “hyphenated Americans.” Notions of citizenship were expanded and democratic principles and practices re-envisioned, pushed in new directions.
