Journal of Men, Masculinities and Spirituality
contact email: 

Journal of Men, Masculinities and Spirituality (JMMS) is an online, scholarly, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal. JMMS is published twice a year with provision for other special editions. 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. Articles and reviews are welcome at any time. JMMS will also consider previously published work if it is not available elsewhere on the internet, and the author holds the rights to re-publish.

Victorian Women Writers: Constructions of Masculinity, April 7-10, 2011

updated: 
Monday, June 14, 2010 - 11:59am
full name / name of organization: 
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

Few critics have addressed fully the various models of masculinity extant in British Victorian women's writings. How are men 'constructed'? Do these women writers adhere to the same ideals of Victorian manliness as male authors? This panel will focus on Victorian women writers' representations of masculinity in the mid to late nineteenth-century. We welcome abstracts on British authors ranging from Elizabeth Gaskell to Florence Nightingale. Please email 250-500 word abstracts by September 30, 2010.

British Women Writers Conference Panel Proposal:
"Formal Curiosities."

Conference: March 31-April 3, 2011 at The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH

Paper proposals are invited for a panel-submission on 18th- and 19th-century British women poets and their experimentations with poetic form. How did women poets negotiate form as self-exploration and (how) was form gendered? Papers may examine a single work, the formal development of a single poet or the evolution of a form in the hands of several poets.

500-word abstracts due October 15, 2010; email to Prof. Noah Comet, comet.2@osu.edu

Please submit proposals in .doc format and attach a c.v.

Bridging the Gaps, Minding the Context: New perspectives for Young Researchers (17-18 March 2011)

full name / name of organization: 
Universidade de Vigo (Spain)

Bridging the Gaps, Minding the Context is a conference hosted by and designed for PhD and Postgraduate students. It seeks to address a number of issues related to literary studies today, in an attempt to bring together early-career researchers from different disciplines. As the title suggests, this conference proposes to discuss the intersection between literature and culture, and how such connection can successfully reflect deeper changes at other levels: how can borders be crossed in literature? And, how do we cross them when encountering a written text? The fragility and ever-changing nature of meaning and textual veracity will also serve as the starting point from which to explore shifting perceptions of power and authority in the text.
