Special Issue: Ecology and Ideology

The contemporary moment abounds with speculation concerning our ecological
future. Specialists in a variety of fields forecast immanent catastrophe,
stemming from a combination of climate change, fossil-fuel depletion, and
consumer waste. The recent bestowal of the Nobel Peace Prize on a group of
scientists studying climate change indicates the degree to which “peace”
has come to signify ecological balance; even the declaration by the Vatican
of a new set of “7 Deadly Sins for the modern age” includes pollution in an
attempt to grapple with the potential of individuals to inflict ecological
damage on a global scale.

Call for Submissions
Religion and Popular Culture
Reconstruction: Studies in Contemporary Culture
Deadline: 15 May 2009

At a time when many in the U.S. and around the world encounter religion as
a polarizing subject, one especially revered by some and utterly contested
by others, this issue of Reconstruction seeks to explore questions arising
at the intersection of religious experience and popular culture. To engage
the relationship of religion and popular culture requires discipline-based,
trans-disciplinary, and inter-disciplinary approaches in order to interpret
these broad ranges of human experience.
