The glittering beauty of the Alfred Jewel, the rich illustration of the Lindisfarne Gospels, the dominating Great West Window of York Minster, the intricate embroidery of the Bayeux Tapestry, the luminous Maestà of Duccio, the opulent Oseberg ship burial, and the sophisticated imagery of the Ruthwell cross are all testament to the centrality of the visual to our understanding of a range of medieval cultures.

Many of our current cultural practices are marked by a union of art and entertainment. Underlined by all-pervasive processes of globalization and digitalization, this union comes in all shapes and sizes, transforming culture so that it can no longer be comfortably classified as high or low, art or genre. Surprisingly, this ‘art of artertainment’ has not, as yet, attracted much scholarly interest. It is with the aim of overcoming this omission that we launch this call for papers.
The Nautilus: A Maritime Journal of Literature, History, and Culture, a peer-reviewed scholarly publication, seeks submissions for its ninth annual issue, to be published in spring 2018. Contributors are encouraged to submit manuscripts on any aspect of maritime literature, history, or culture, following MLA style, using endnotes and the works cited format.
Special Issue: Transpacific Currents
The editorial team of American Music is planning a special issue to appear in 2018 on the topic of transpacific intersections. We invite contributions addressing Asian-Pacific music and musicians within the Americas, as well as music and musicians of the Americas in the Asia-Pacific region.
For consideration, please send an abstract of not more than 300 words and a CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 30, 2017. Invited articles should be approximately 6,000-8,000 words in length including references, and will be due by January 31, 2018.
