Journal of Men, Masculinities and Spirituality (JMMS) is an interdisciplinary journal published twice a year, and welcomes new submissions. JMMS seeks to be as inclusive as possible in its area of inquiry. Papers address the full spectrum of masculinities and sexualities, particularly those which are seldom heard. Similarly, JMMS addresses not only monotheistic religions and spiritualities but also Eastern, indigenous, new religious movements and other spiritualities which resist categorization. JMMS will also consider previously published work not available elsewhere on the internet (such as book chapters in edited collections).
This seminar asks questions about the myriad ways that literary agency is mediated, complicated, and enriched by forces external to the author function. As scholars concerned with the material production of texts often point out, the literature we read is often shaped and transformed by the work of editors, publishers, amanuenses, illustrators, scribes, translators, compilers, and so on. All of these laborers operating between the inaugural author and the reader substantially transform both texts and readers' experiences of these texts. But how, this seminar asks, does this substantial field of labor inform our understanding of the subjects involved in the production of literarature?

The Crisis of the Confined Body is a graduate student conference that will join five Romance languages (Catalan, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish), fostering a comparative approach to studies of the body in confinement, isolation and extraction. The conference will offer critical examinations of the body and its contingent relationship to spatial, temporal, cultural and/or linguistic parameters. A theme that lends itself to multiple fields, The Crisis of the Confined Body will promote interdisciplinary collaborations between the humanities, visual arts, and sciences, engaging points of overlap as well as lines of divergence. We encourage presentations that engage a comparative and/or interdisciplinary approach.
