Marilynne Robinson has written widely-acclaimed novels and essays that explore the relationship between religion and culture.   Marilynne Robinson Society at the 2019 American Literature Association (ALA) Conference is soliticing proposals that examine how recent developments in post-secular studies can illuminate Robinson’s religious vision. Jurgen Habermas, Talal Asad, Charles Taylor, Jared Hickman, Tracy Fessensden, among other scholars, have led us to reconsider the secularization thesis and the ways in which it has shaped narratives of modernity. We ask how Robinson’s investigation of faith is especially relevant to the growing field of postsecular studies.

How does latinidad rely on personal memory? ¿Cómo es el concepto de « latinidad » a la vez un producto de memoria cultural? ¿Qué pasa cuando olvidamos? Do we learn latinidad from lessons that value the truths of memory? Across specialties of the disciplines and in a variety methods, recent scholarship is addressing the distance between the historical and the remembered. The authority of history measured against the validity of memory (both individual and collective) reveals that how we remember has become as important as what we remember.

Alterglobal Politics: Postcolonial Theory in the Era of the Anthropocene and the Nonhuman

Although they are often spoken of in the same breath, theories of the Anthropocene and the nonhuman turn vary in their emphases. The Anthropocene introduces a new ‘universal’ subject – the human species as a global geophysical agent. Theories of the nonhuman, however, seek to displace anthropocentric foci – the ‘human’ is viewed as a part of a complex assemblage co-constituted by many others. Postcolonial theory has, in general, been sceptical of both trajectories. On the one hand, postcolonial theory and theorists remain generally suspicious of the putative universal subject (the ‘human species’) that purportedly impacts this era of anthropogenic climate-change catastrophically.

Most of us remember what scared us as children: the bumps in the night, the dark alleys, and the monsters, ghouls, and ghosts brimmed with the potential to terrify. The thrill of dodging the terror that waited in the shadows fuels many horror fanatics to return to the theatres, bookstands, and now podcasts to relive youthful feelings of dread. It should be no surprise, then, that youth horror media is pervasive. From Goosebumps and the upcoming release of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark to Nickelodeon’s Are You Afraid of the Dark? and the CBBC’s Creeped Out, there is an abundance of media that introduces children to the horror genre.
