[[Deadline Extended]] CFP: "Moved by the Spirit, Authorized by God: Black Women Activists and Religion" NEMLA Mar 17-20, 2016,

Thursday, October 1, 2015 - 6:18pm
Jami Carlacio, Borough of Manhattan CC / NeMLA

Since the era of slavery and continuing through the present, Black women have articulated a vision of freedom, equality, anti-racism, and racial uplift, drawing from Scripture to sustain their work of promoting equal rights for African Americans. From the early female abolitionists such as Maria Stewart, Sojourner Truth, and Harriet Tubman, to the anti-lynching activists Ida B. Wells and Mary Talbert, to the twentieth-century civil rights activists Ella Josephine Baker and Septima Clark, and countless others, these "churchwomen" actively challenged the status quo that relegated Black women to the least empowered positions in the social order.

19th Annual CSLIS Conference (March 31 - April 2, 2016), "Is Man a Myth?"

updated: 
Tuesday, September 29, 2015 - 11:19am
C. S. Lewis & Inklings Society

Papers related to the works of C.S. Lewis, the Inklings, George MacDonald, and Dorothy L. Sayers are invited.

The theme of the conference "Is Man a Myth?" takes its cue from the book on Mr. Tumnus's shelf to ponder not just the plausibility of "sub-created" worlds and their mythical inhabitants, but the ontology of ourselves, ostensibly the only meaning-making creatures in this cosmos. Now that God is "dead," there has also been the death of the "author," and so the next to go is Man (humanity itself). For recent Bible translators who eschew masculine references to God, the gender construct of "man" is even more suspect. We invite presenters to look in the Inklings' works for how they might have responded.
