There is little doubt as to the importance that H.P. Lovecraft has played in the development of American horror. Additionally, the pulp magazine Weird Tales, which published much of Lovecraft's fiction, is consistently recognized as a seminal publication for eerie and horrific texts. With these two givens in mind, we are looking for paper proposals that explore the way that Lovecraft and/or Weird Tales helped construct the American horror canon or the American horrific aesthetic. Papers will be presented at the College of St. Joseph's popular culture conference, held April 12-13th, 2013.
Potential paper topics [this list should not be seen as limiting]:

Journal of Men, Masculinities and Spirituality (JMMS) is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal. 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 papers address historical and contemporary phenomena as well as speculative essays about future spiritualities.
JMMS always welcomes submissions; it also considers republishing articles that are not available elsewhere on the Internet, such as chapters from edited collections.
