Call for Papers

Lisbon, Portugal – July 23-25, 2019

 

What do you imagine when you hear the word “family?” How do our traditionally nuclear imaginings of family serve to marginalize non-normative formations of family and kinship? Which iterations of family get left out of discourses of family values, are subjected to hate speech, or are somehow forgotten when the mainstream media talks about family?

Special Issue of Christianity & Literature

 

“Literature of / about the Christian Right” 

Guest Editor: Christopher Douglas (University of Victoria)

 

The Times ‘best-seller’ list was misleading. Evangelical books were often outselling the Times’ best-sellers. But the paper did not bother to count sales in religious bookstores. The people hurt most weren’t evangelical authors (our books sold anyway); rather, the losers were Democratic Party leaders and other liberal readers of the ‘paper of record’ who were blindsided by subsequent events. The Times’ readers were not given a heads-up about what was going on ‘out there.’ 

– Frank Schaeffer, Crazy for God
