Mass media have always had complicated relationships with finance. From the financial institutions and logics that have long structured Hollywood, to the intertwined proliferation of communications and financial networks globally, scholars have mapped these transformations in industrial and political economic terms. The eruption of financial terms, imaginaries, subjectivities, and crises into media content, however, remains comparatively underexplored.

In today's complex world religious discourse is especially crucial, considering that secularism is expanding around the globe. We seek contributions on the representation of the Virgin Mary in World Literature and Art. Comparative approaches are always welcome. Religious and cultural literacy is important for domestic and international politics, the practice of peace, harmony, justice, and social prosperity. Thus, this edited volume will help diminish religious illiteracy. Contributions are welcome from scholars in various disciplines in the humanities. Please send your proposals, along with your CV by July 31 to Elena Shabliy firstname.lastname@example.org
The Progressive Era (1890-1920) occupies an unsettled place in Americanist literary studies, despite the period's claims to forward-looking progress. To some extent, this uneasy relationship to the discipline-- whose professional protocols, pedagogy, and scholarship often operates by means of century-based periodization-- reflects the period's own wildly unsettled nature.
Deadline Reminder: Presentation proposals are due no later than Saturday, August 1, 2015 for the Reexamining the 1960s: Media, Politics, Culture Conference (to be held at Texas Christian University, in Fort Worth, Texas, November 6-7, 2015).
The conference organizers are seeking historically and theoretically intriguing presentations that explore any noteworthy aspect(s) of media, politics, and/or culture during the 1960s, whether in the United States or elsewhere. This gathering promises to provide an intellectually stimulating investigation into the complex phenomenon that was "The Sixties." Accordingly, participants are encouraged to interpret the conference theme quite broadly and innovatively.
You are invited to send your 250-300-word abstract to Dr. Darci Hill, Conference Director, on any topic dealing with Medieval and/or Renaissance thought. If you would like to propose a special session, you are welcome to do that as well. We welcome papers and performances on any aspect of this time period. Papers dealing with language and linguistics, literature, music, philosophy, history, art, music, and theatre are all equally welcome.
Please send all inquiries and abstracts electronically to:
