CFP: Fictions of Catholicism (9/30/04; journal issue)

updated: 
Wednesday, August 4, 2004 - 7:37pm
Kerry Kidd

The New Contemplative Review, a journal formed to promote scholarship on the interface between culture and spirituality, seeks articles for its second issue, on Catholicism, due to appear in January 2005. It is hoped that this issue will explore themes relating to the histories, spiritualities, ideologies and material constructions of Catholicism in both past and contemporary cultures: subjectivity and meaning, as well as ideology, faith and questioning, bodies and the Church, medieval and medievalist accounts of Catholicism: issues of power and relationship between Catholics and non-Catholics: the Catholic Church in fiction and life-writing: the public presence of the Church in past and present.

CFP: Moral Chaucer? Ethical Theory and the Premodern Text (9/15/04;
collection)

A forthcoming collection of essays seeks to (re)engage the question of
"moral Chaucer."

Chaucer's immediate successors credited him with "pleasance" coupled
with "sentence," and some compared him with the great moral
philosophers Aristotle, Cicero, and Seneca. For later generations
Chaucer would come to be distinguished for his geniality and ironic
detachment in sharp contrast to the dogmatism and dullness of so many
contemporary moralists. Only recently (notwithstanding the exegetical
criticism of the mid-twentieth-century) have critics begun to
re-examine and describe Chaucer's "ethics."
