Ever since Max Weber in scientific and philosophical reflection, the idea appeared that the Reformation is not only a historical phenomenon but above all socio-cultural. Associated with it were, among others, individualism, experientialism, modernity, innovation, activism, asceticism in the world, creativity, self-reflection, communitarianism, economy, development of accounting, criticism, capitalism, the culture of writing and printing. It's only a few examples of phenomena and values ​​associated inextricably with the wider Reformation in culture. The very existence of the Reformation bears fruit historically in the concept of tolerance and respect for diversity. The list of themes and values ​​certainly is not limited and closed.

From March 21-24, 2017, the Humanities Division at Essex County College will host its Fifth Annual Humanities Conference, "Radical Humanities: The Radical Tradition in the Humanities." Although the idea of radicalism can, in some ways, seem antithetical to our understanding of "tradition," this conference will, in part, examine the roots and patterns of radical thought in humanities discourse (including literature, philosophy, art, music, theater, dance, media, architecture, and design) as well as explore works, ideas, and movements that may be seen as radical or revolutionary.

Minnesota Writing and English Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, January 28, 2017

   The annual Minnesota Writing and English Conference(MNWE) will be held at Southwest Minnesota State University, Marshall, Minnesota on March 31, 2017-April 1, 2017. The theme  of the conference is "Connecting Landscapes." Our age of globalization and  virtual communities can obscure the reality that we are all literally grounded in our landscapes, our locales and institutional sites. MnWE's theme, Connecting Landcapes, invites us to consider the most fruitful ways of connecting geographical and metaphorical landscapes. As English educators, we speak of discovering "where we stand" on issues, of being "moved" by words and images, and of using languagae to change others' positions and points of view and create movement.

Rhizomes: Cultural Studies in Emerging Knowledge
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 15, 2016

2017 is the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's death. Austen has become one of the most discussed and beloved literary figures; indeed, her status as one of our most beloved literary figures has often influenced the ways in which her life and works are discussed within critical circles. Eve Sedgwick famously announced that Austen criticism is "notable not just for its timidity and banality but for its unresting exaction of the spectacle of a Girl Being Taught a Lesson." This special issue of Rhizomes invites critical articles and creative works that dismiss both this legacy of timidity and the tendency to exact pedagogical spectacles through scholarship.
