Jesusland: An Issue (#72)

After the elections, comes the New Morality? That's the aim of the right-wing evangelicals who helped bring the Republican Party to power in the 2004 US elections. Beyond creating a third Bush administration, economic and religious conservatives now hold power in two branches of the federal government, control appointments to the judiciary, and dominate numerous state and local governments.

CFP - Queen: a journal of rhetoric and power

With the current American Presidential campaign under full swing, coming
after a two-year declaration of war against terror presented as a war of
"good" against "evil", a declaration often invoking God and
tapping into centuries-old tensions between religious allegiances,
the editors of Queen are announcing a call for submissions on
the Rhetoric of Religion in the Public Sphere.

CFP: UMBR(a): A Journal of the Unconscious: On Religion (12/1/04; journal issue)

Friday, September 10, 2004 - 6:28pm

UMBR(a) 2005:

On Religion

Psychoanalysis has acknowledged the foolishness of any so-called "turn to
religion," reminding us that the religious has always been in the air.
Rather than defensively insist on religion?s spectrality, psychoanalysis
breaks with modernity?s political anxiety in exposing the material truth of
what is at stake: belief as such. To what extent does the well-trodden
intersection of psychoanalysis and religion, the unconscious and faith,
demand a radical break from the politics of resignation that has of late
dominated our political landscape?

CFP: Fictions of Catholicism (9/30/04; journal issue)

Kerry Kidd

The New Contemplative Review, a journal formed to promote scholarship on the interface between culture and spirituality, seeks articles for its second issue, on Catholicism, due to appear in January 2005. It is hoped that this issue will explore themes relating to the histories, spiritualities, ideologies and material constructions of Catholicism in both past and contemporary cultures: subjectivity and meaning, as well as ideology, faith and questioning, bodies and the Church, medieval and medievalist accounts of Catholicism: issues of power and relationship between Catholics and non-Catholics: the Catholic Church in fiction and life-writing: the public presence of the Church in past and present.
