CFP: Interdisciplinary Essays on the Apotropaic (2/15/06; collection)

Gregory Marks

Call for Essays

 

Seeking essays for an interdisciplinary collection tentatively titled “The Shield of Perseus: Essays on the Apotropaic.”

 

The apotropaic (Gr., “to turn away from”) constitutes a class of rituals intended to ward off evil. Jane Ellen Harrison investigated their presence in ancient Greek religion, but the term has wide application in the humanities. The apotropaic often uses the horrible to repel the horrible (e.g., the evil eye, the head of Medusa); thinkers as diverse as Freud, Paglia, Derrida, and Spivak have found it a topic worthy of comment.

CFP: Working Conditions: Reform & Religion in 19th Century American
Women's Writing

How did anti-Calvinist religious movements (with a new belief in progress
and human perfectability) condition reformist American literature by women
during the period 1840-1895? Of particular interest are works that exposed
and criticized industrial working conditions, such as Rebecca Harding
Davis's Life in the Iron Mills, but papers on any reformist women's
writing works from this period are welcome.

Please submit a 300-word abstract by December 15th to:
