full name / name of organization: 
American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
contact email: 
GCarnes@lindenwood.edu

Discussions of English Catholicism in the eighteenth century often treat Catholics as an “Other” against which English Protestant culture defined itself. Of course, English Catholics in the period also sought to define or represent themselves—sometimes to distinguish themselves from a Protestant “Other,” and sometimes to bridge the divide between themselves and Protestants. This panel welcomes papers investigating representations of English Catholics in literary or non-literary writings and art produced by English Catholics, or papers investigating any aspect of English Catholic culture.

CFP: JOURNAL SPECIAL ISSUE: THE BANALIZATION OF WAR
Issue editors: Graham MacPhee and Angela Naimou

War both establishes and destabilizes the fundamental distinctions between civilian and combatant, compatriot and alien, and the lawful and the illegitimate. Yet arguably there is another set of distinctions whose fragility has been exposed by the new modes of military violence emerging post–9/11, namely that between emergency and routine, crisis and continuity, the spectacular and the prosaic, the extraordinary and the banal. Military violence, traditionally justifiable only as the temporary suspension of the norms of civility in a state of exception, seems to be becoming increasingly routine and everyday
