The Sewanee Medieval Colloquium also invites proposals for individual papers engaging with any aspect of our 2019 theme, Lives and Afterlives. Possibilities might include the theologies of heaven, medieval ecologies, everyday life in the Middle Ages, the production of reliquaries, ordering of public space, and popular medievalism. Papers should be twenty minutes in length, and commentary is traditionally provided for each paper presented. We invite papers from all disciplines, and encourage contributions from medievalists working on any geographic area. A seminar will also seek contributions; please look for its separate CFP soon. Participants in the Colloquium are generally limited to holders of a Ph.D.

Post Script: Essays in Film and the Humanitiessolicits submissions for a special issue on Performing Identities in Jewish Latin American Film, guest edited by Luca Barattoni (Clemson University) and Patricia Nuriel (Wofford College). The growing field of Jewish Latin American film studies in recent years accounts for the increasing presence of Jewish characters and cultural subjects in Latin American cinema. Since their early days, the Jews were among the innovators of the film and music industries in Latin America. However, cinematographic representations of Jewish topics started emerging only after the mid-20th century.

Submissions are currently being accepted for Correspondences: Journal for the Study of Esotericism.
Correspondences is an international, peer-reviewed online journal dedicated to the academic study of esotericism. The editors acknowledge that the use of this umbrella term for a widely variant field of alternate scientific and religious ideas is problematic. Correspondences therefore maintains an openness toward varying interpretations of the boundaries of the field of esotericism and encourages submissions from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, such as History of Religions, Sociology, Art History, Philosophy, History of Science, Literature, Musicology, and Cultural Studies.
