The Indian River Review is currently soliciting submissions for its sixth issue scheduled for publication in late spring 2019. The theme for this issue is “passion.” Of course, this word immediately proposes romantic passion, and while the editors are not against submissions that go in that direction, submitters should be careful. Think Wuthering Heights or even When Harry Met Sally, not Fifty Shades of Grey, specifically no erotica.

I am working to organize a panel proposal for this year's American Academy of Religion conference for the Religion and Science Fiction Unit. In particular, I am looking for fellow panelists interested in presenting papers on the topic "Transposition of Religious and Theological Concepts Through Worldbuilding." If you are interested, I would need your 1,000-word proposal and 150-word abstract by February 23rd so that I can draft a cohesive 1,000-word panel proposal before the final deadline. Please reach out to me if you are interested.
I am organizing a panel in response to this year's call for papers from the Religion and Popular Culture Unit of the American Academy of Religion. In particular, I am responding to the call for papers on the topic of "Fictional Religions in Film, Literature, and Other Media." The creation of fictional worldviews is a fascinating aspect of robust worldmaking and mythopoesis, and the phenomenon suggests all sorts of interesting questions about the relationship between artistic creativity and the religious imagination, the dis- or re-enchanted qualities of the secular, the role of mass media in forming our worldviews, ways of life, and identities, and other issues.
For an edited collection, “Revisiting Peer Review: Critical Reflections on a Pedagogical Practice,” we seek chapter proposals with a particular focus on English language learners.
