What about those ideas you entertain but never fully develop? Those notions which are reviled and dismissed by peer gatekeepers? Follies so whimsical they unsettle even you?

We're looking for those submissions, the ones shunned by polite society and keepers of the status quo.

Let us be up front: Abstractshuns endeavors to become an ersatz academic journal, middlebrow at best. If Grindr/Tinder (depending on the orientation of the idea) spent a really naughty weekend with Notes and Queries, this would be the spawn, with Courtney Love and Jack Halberstam as godparents.

2016 Midwest Conference on Christianity and Literature

Near the beginning of his breathtaking work in theological aesthetics, Hans Urs von Balthasar warns, "In a world that no longer has enough confidence in itself to affirm the beautiful, the proofs of the truth have lost their cogency." At a time when the world, and perhaps especially the Church, lacks such confidence, the illuminated Saint John's Bible stands as a remarkable, counter-cultural affirmation of what Pope Saint John Paul II describes as art's "unique capacity to take one or other facet of the [Gospel] message and translate it into colours, shapes and sounds which nourish the intuition of those who look or listen." In reviving a tradition of scriptural illumination that has been nearly absent for five hundred years, the Saint John's Bible seeks

We are all too familiar with news channels reporting the threat of ISIS and debates around Islam's relevance in the modern world. The daily dose of graphic images of ISIS beheadings reinforces the anathema for Islam and its followers. In such fraught times, anti-Muslim racism reigns. Arun Kundnani contends that "Anti-Muslim racism ... appears as the most recent layer in this longer history, a reworking and recycling of older logics of oppression. From this perspective, Islamophobia, like other forms of racism, should not be seen only as a problem of hate crimes committed by lone extremists.
