Renascence

Renascence, a peer-reviewed critical and scholarly journal, is published by Marquette University as an expression of its Jesuit mission of the search for truth and the exaltation of human dignity. The journal's essays explore how literature is informed by and contributes to our understanding of fundamental questions concerning moral philosophy, theology, and spirituality. Though Renascence is an English language journal and has an emphasis on literature in English, studies on works and authors from a diversity of times, countries, and cultures are welcome. Essays should make a well-defined, original scholarly argument, run 4,000-7,000 words, and document sources using MLA style.

Modalities: Politics and Poetics, 18-19 Sept 2015

updated: 
Tuesday, May 26, 2015 - 2:54pm
Rice University English Graduate Symposium

This is a symposium about –alities. Now commonplace, terms like temporality, governmentality, positionality, and so on have made their way into literary studies and the humanities more broadly. The broadening of scholarship beyond the human now underway requires that we take a fresh look at the poetics and politics of interpretation, whether or not our scholarship studies the nonhuman explicitly. At the precise moment at which we are being told to look "outside," we need to get clear again: what is this outside? Is it thinkable? Can we say what we have been saying in such a climate?

Reminder: Edited Collection / Rethinking Globalization and Spatial Scale [Abstracts May 29th]

updated: 
Tuesday, May 26, 2015 - 1:54pm
North Carolina State University

We are seeking essays for an edited collection titled Rethinking Globalization and Spatial Scale. The goal of the volume is to bring together interdisciplinary research on globalization spanning the humanities and social sciences that foregrounds theoretical and methodological conceptualizations of scale—how people, capital, goods, material infrastructure, ideas, and power aggregate along or slide among different degrees or levels of attachment, from personal to local to national to transnational.
