Jesusland: An Issue (#72)

After the elections, comes the New Morality? That's the aim of the right-wing evangelicals who helped bring the Republican Party to power in the 2004 US elections. Beyond creating a third Bush administration, economic and religious conservatives now hold power in two branches of the federal government, control appointments to the judiciary, and dominate numerous state and local governments.

Edible Ideologies: Representing Food and Meaning

CALL FOR PAPERS

We seek submissions for an interdisciplinary collection devoted to the
examination of how representations (literary, filmic, artistic, etc.) of
food and foodways serve as vehicles for the transmission of ideologies
about gender, sex, race, class, age, ethnicity, disability, and a host
of other identity constructs. Essays that provide a comparative
analysis of multiple representations are preferred to those that examine
just one text, although the latter will be considered. All submissions
should go beyond a mere "close read" to discuss the social and political
context and implications of the meaning of the representations.
