CFP: Rage, Resistance, and Representation: Women in U. S. Race Riots

Atlanta, GA. Washington, DC. Wilmington, NC. Chicago, Philadelphia,
Ocoee, New York, Tulsa: cities – among many others – that have been home
to race riots in the United States over the nineteenth and twentieth
centuries. This collection of essays will investigate the various active
roles women, and particularly minority women, played in such riots,

CFP: Hanif Kureishi (11/10/03; collection)

Friday, October 17, 2003 - 5:02pm
Yousaf, Nahem



Contributors are sought for a collection of original essays on Hanif
Kureishi's writing and filmmaking. The deadline for 500-word abstracts is
10th November 2003. It is intended that the volume should explore each of
the genres within which Kureishi works (novels, plays, screenplays, films,
short stories, essays and music criticism). I am particularly interested
in receiving contributions that take new approaches to his best-known
works and that explore facets of his oeuvre that have, as yet, received
little critical scrutiny.

CFP: The Holocaust as Screen Memory (1/15/04; collection)

Thursday, October 2, 2003 - 8:43pm
Weissman, Gary

Proposals/contributions are invited for a collection of original essays
exploring the claim that the Holocaust has served as a screen memory for
other histories, anxieties, and concerns. For example, some scholars in the
United States have suggested that the Holocaust may serve as a screen memory
for events "closer to home" than the Nazi genocide of the European
Jews-particularly the genocide of Native Americans and the perpetration of
American slavery and segregation. Others have identified the Holocaust as a
symbol for vanishing American Jewish identity and community. Still others
link interest in the Holocaust to fears concerning the disappearance of

BioDun Ogundayo

Recent events have led to reappraisals of religion and spirituality.
This creates an opportunity to collect in one volume the different and
differing perspectives and interpretations of what it means to be
religious or spiritual today. Essays intended for an international
audience are therefore solicited for inclusion in a collection
tentatively entitled "Uniqueness and Versatility: Cross-Cultural
Expressions of Spirituality". The book is to bring together innovative
but readable explorations of religious, mythological, cosmological and
theological texts.
