According to Darcy Ribeiro (1995), the Brazilian people have religiosity as a cornerstone of its culture. It not only played a large role in its “civilizatory” process, but also stimulated resistance movements, among which are the ones in Canudos, Bahia, and Lagoinha, Goiás. Religion has remained a strong identity feature through all of Brazilian history and, still today, it is the center of relevant social conflicts. Nevertheless, there is, in the Brazilian literary scene, very little space dedicated to the study of the representation of individuals and/or religious doctrines. The academy, thus, fosters the shunning of literary works bearing relationship with the mystic, the religious or, anything, in any way, connected with the sacred.

The Modernist Studies in Asia (MSIA) research network is proposing an affiliated panel at the MSA conference in Brooklyn, October 22–25.
Global and planetary modernisms tend to map different modernisms according to countries and continents, implicitly imposing a static, area studies–inflected order on these divergent and discrepant artists, texts, and practices. Against this tendency, for this panel we seek papers that trace surprising movements of modernism (broadly understood) within, across, and beyond Asia. Put another way, we are interested in accounts of how Asian modernism won't stay still.
Masculinities have been created and codified by every aspect of society, and have been embodied in everything from images of cave men to the Ken doll. Much of this creation depends upon the stifling of manifestations of masculinities that, over time, fluctuate in terms of social acceptability and utility. This volume will interrogate classic and contemporary cultural products in order to expose and explore how and why masculinities have been censored as “toxic” or are increasingly being silenced in other ways. The collection seeks to offer a mindful engagement with the rapidly evolving field of masculinity studies and the emergent crises facing masculinities of all kinds.
