Many of the most important studies of Jeffers published over the years have treated the poet, in one way or another, as a religious figure: Robert Brophy (1973) investigated myth-ritual structures in Jeffers's narrative poems and verse dramas, and William Everson (1988) examined Jeffers's work in relation to the religious thought of Rudolf Otto; more recently, Robert Zaller (2012) has located Jeffers's conception of the literary sublime within the historical and theological context of American post-Calvinism, and George Hart (2013) explores Jeffers's "sacramental poetics." While there is widespread agreement, then, that Jeffers and his writings are in some sense "religiously" significant, there remains little to no scholarly consensus as to what it means

This Rough Magic (www.thisroughmagic.org) is a journal dedicated to the art of teaching Medieval and Renaissance Literature.

All too often, the same canonical works and authors find their way into Medieval and Renaissance Literature courses. While canonical literature is extremely important and not to be avoided, a great many authors (i.e., Cyril Tourneur) and texts (i.e., Life of St. Margaret of Antioch) go un-noticed. We are therefore looking for short essays (i.e., 5-10 pages) that encourage readers to try non-traditional, over-looked, teachable texts inside their classrooms. Essays should answer the following:

A conference at the Center for 21st Century Studies (C21), UW-Milwaukee
April 30-May 2, 2015

Deadline extended to Friday, January 16, 2015

What comes after extinction? Our predominant understanding of extinction today relates to natural species extinctions caused largely by human actions. But in the twenty-first century categorical distinctions between humans and nonhumans or culture and nature are no longer tenable—if they ever really were. Indeed as Darwin was not even the first to note, mass extinction events preceded the appearance of humans on the planet.

Verge: Studies in Global Asias

Verge: Studies in Global Asias is a new journal that includes scholarship from scholars in both Asian and Asian American Studies. These two fields have traditionally defined themselves in opposition to one another, with the former focused on an area-studies, nationally and politically oriented approach, and the latter emphasizing epistemological categories, including ethnicity and citizenship, that drew mainly on the history of the United States. The past decade however has seen a series of rapprochements in which, for instance, categories "belonging" to Asian American Studies (ethnicity, race, diaspora) have been applied with increasing success to studies of Asia.
