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.

CFP for Edited Volume: New Readings of the Medieval Robin Hood Tales

The 2013 publication of Thomas Ohlgren and Lister Matheson's Early Rymes of Robyn Hood: An Edition of the Texts, ca. 1425-1600 provides new opportunities for scholars to reread and reconsider the earliest Robin Hood rhymes and plays. Scholars now have access to the extant manuscripts of the late medieval ballads as well as two early plays. Now that these early texts are readily available—some for the first time—it is time for scholars of a wide range of interests and backgrounds to return to the medieval rhymes with the aid of this significant new resource that allows for truly in-depth analysis of the source materials.
