Exclusively examining horror, this journal provides interested professionals with an opportunity to read outstanding scholarship from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, including work conceived as interdisciplinary. By expanding the conversation to include specialists concerned with diverse historical periods, varied geography, and a wide variety of expressive media, this journal will inform and stimulate anyone interested in a wider and deeper understanding of horror.

Imaginatio et Ratio (www.imaginatioetratio.org) is a journal focusing on the arts and theology.

The journal is published twice a year and is available in print and digital formats. We are currrently looking for submissions for our spring issue (March), but submissions are ongoing.
"Crisis and Imagination After Poe"
Seeking panelists for a Roundtable Panel at the 43rd Annual College English Association (CEA) Conference (March 29-31, 2012) to be held in Richmond, VA. In a recent article on teaching multiethnic literature published in MELUS, Tina Chen calls for "an ethics of knowledge, derived from the literature itself, that can help us teach our students to be ethically oriented towards the study of alterity." Such an ethics of knowledge, Chen proposes, would emphasize the responsibilities incumbent on authors, readers, and critics as they address cultural difference, and would help to counter the "humanistic impulse" that seeks to privilege similarity in the midst of alterity.
The Fairy Tales Area of the Popular Culture Association invites submissions on any topic involving fairy tales for the 2012 Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association Conference, to be held at the Copley Marriot, April 11 - April 14 in Boston.
While our interests are broad and inclusive, we are particularly interested in papers that discuss fairy tales in contemporary popular culture (tv shows, movies, graphic novels, advertising, toys, video games, popular literature, etc), revisions and adaptations of fairy tales, and pedagogical uses of and approaches to fairy tales. Still, we are interested in as wide an array of papers as possible, so please do not hesitate to send a submission on any fairy tale related subject.
