This panel seeks informed readings of British sermons written between 1500 and 1900, reflecting on the ways that the sermon fits in the literature classroom and for literature readers today.What new avenues of research can be pursued in studying the sermon in Great Britain's literature from 1500-1900? How do the well-known sermon writers (e.g., Donne, Andrewes, Wesley) and lesser-known (Barrow, Whitefield, Edwards) form, transform, and deform the genre? And how do we respond to the form as instructors of British literature in the post-Christian, twenty-first century? This panel seeks informed readings of sermons and ability to discuss them in their historical context as well as pedagogically for college/university classrooms today.

Cinema: Journal of Philosophy and the Moving Image invites submissions for its 8th issue devoted to the philosophy of Karl Marx and its links with cinematic art.
Marxism, as a tool for social analysis and transformation, has influenced politicized and progressive filmmakers such as Sergei Eisenstein and Sembène Ousmane, in theory and in practice, as well as shaped theoretical discussions around film and history, aesthetics, economics, and ideology. Key topics of this discussion have been reproducible art and active collective experience (Walter Benjamin) and cultural and social hegemony (Antonio Gramsci), among others.
