Call for Submissions: Teaching Thoreau

In 2018, the Thoreau Society Bulletin will begin publishing a series of essays on the subject of “Teaching Thoreau.” This new regular feature will focus on strategies for teaching the life and works of Henry David Thoreau while giving educators the opportunity to share their expertise and experiences with an audience of fellow teachers and students of Thoreau.

We are currently accepting submissions for next year. We invite educators of all levels and subjects to submit short essays (1,000-1,500 words) on their pedagogical methods both inside and outside of the classroom. The series will explore the value of teaching Thoreau from many different perspectives. Possible topics include:

Boundaries  can literally  be defined as  limits, limiting  factors,  borders  or barriers. The  term connotes the idea of restriction in both a physical  and ideological  sense. In social and cultural discourses, the idea of boundaries can be understood  as a metaphysical notion  to describe various ideas which are the foundations of all forms of discrimination and prejudice  based on issues such as patriarchy,  race, ethnicity,  class, sexuality, religious affiliation and other forms of classification. Examples  of such  conceptions  of boundaries  in  colonial,  postcolonial,  poststructuralist  and postmodern discourses include  the practices of stereotyping or othering.

I am organizing a panel in response to this year's call for papers from the Religion and Popular Culture Unit of the American Academy of Religion. In particular, I am responding to the call for papers on the topic of "Fictional Religions in Film, Literature, and Other Media." The creation of fictional worldviews is a fascinating aspect of robust worldmaking and mythopoesis, and the phenomenon suggests all sorts of interesting questions about the relationship between artistic creativity and the religious imagination, the dis- or re-enchanted qualities of the secular, the role of mass media in forming our worldviews, ways of life, and identities, and other issues.
