The Indian River Review

updated: 
Wednesday, February 14, 2018 - 9:06am
Indian River State College
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, March 31, 2018

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.

Fictional Religions (in Film, Literature, and Other Media)

Wednesday, February 7, 2018 - 9:12am
AAR, Religion and Popular Culture Unit
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 23, 2018

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.
