Journal of Men, Masculinities and Spirituality

Currently accepting submissions: 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. JMMS papers address historical and contemporary phenomena as well as speculative essays about future spiritualities.

Julia Ehrhardt

This is a special session for the 2011 MLA: Food Writings in American Fiction. Session explores literary connections and linkages between food writings such as cookbooks, recipe compilations, diet guides, etc. and American fiction. How have American authors incorporated contemporaneous food writings into their fiction? How are the generic conventions of food writing evident in works of American literature? Are there trademark stylistic and thematic emphases in food writing by American fiction writers? Papers may cover all periods but should treat specific authors and/or works.

The President's Ghost: A Hauntology of Democracy. MLA 2011 (Los Angeles 1/6-9)

updated: 
Wednesday, January 13, 2010 - 4:25pm
A Special Session (subject to MLA approval)

Presidents of the United States and presidential candidates have a long history of "writing" autobiographies which skillfully enact and construct a piece of political theater. The public's complicity in desiring a "war hero" president enables such posturing. However, the political performance ultimately becomes restrictive and the public becomes confused when the president or candidate betrays expectations. The politician's desire to manipulate inauthentic portrayals is itself subject to contradiction.
