Update: "Between the Sacred and the Profane: Medieval Renaissance and Performance" (Peer-reviewed)

Baylor Journal of Theatre and Performance seeks essays for a special issue, to be guest-edited by Dr. K. Sarah-Jane Murray and Dr. Sinda K. Vanderpool. We welcome essays that explore performance in, and performative aspects of, medieval and Renaissance drama, poetry, and literature. We particularly encourage submissions exploring the relationship 'between the sacred and the profane.' Given that many medieval/Renaissance non-drama works were composed to be performed aloud, the editors will consider submissions focusing on a variety of genres. Popular performances, including non-manuscript based traditions, are also appropriate subjects.

Scholars across the disciplines are pleased to announce the formation of The
Levinas Society. Inspired by Lithuanian-born Jewish philosopher and Talmudic
commentator Emmanuel Levinas (1906-1995) and contemporary Levinas scholarship,
we propose developing a formal society to coordinate and enhance critical work
and collaboration across the academic disciplines. The goal of this society is
to facilitate a broad and dynamic community of persons working toward effecting
the ethical in political, feminist, religious, critical, literary, pedagogical
and philosophical realms.
