Proposals sought for a proposed collection of essays entitled
"Buddhism: 'Eastern' Religion, World Literature" on interactions among
Buddhist faiths, writings, practices and "Western" literature. Most
interested in proposed histories of Buddhism and literature within a
single period (20-c British, for example); investigations of the
influence of a particular Buddhist school or Buddhist text over time or
over several texts, investigations of groups of similar texts by
different authors, or investigations of Buddhism within the work of
single significant figures, like Thoreau or Kerouac. Less interested in
investigations of a single text unless it is an undeniably important

Material Religion: The Journal of Images, Objects, and Belief
A new journal from Berg Publishers, Oxford

Material Religion seeks to explore how religion happens in material
culture – images, devotional and liturgical objects, architecture and
sacred space, works of art and mass-produced artifacts. No less
important than these material forms are the many different practices
that put them to work. Ritual, communication, ceremony, instruction,
meditation, propaganda, pilgrimage, display, magic, liturgy and
interpretation constitute many of the practices whereby religious
material culture constructs the worlds of belief.
