Jonathan Bayliss created a fictional science called "dromenology" in his Gloucesterman series which was meant to study collective human endeavor. In contrast to the Romantic concept of individual action, this science describes activity conducted by humans as groups: work and play, religious ritual, and artistic endeavors such as dance or drama. He conceptualized such activity as the work that staves off entropy in the thermodynamic systems we call communities or societies.
The Jonathan Bayliss Society (www.jonathanbayliss.org) invites proposals for papers to be presented at a roundtable at the 2021 American Literature Association annual conference in Boston, Massachusetts, July 7-11, 2021.

We are having papers for our January- February Issue on broad areas:
118th PAMLA ConferenceLas Vegas, Nevada | November 11-14, 2021Sahara Las Vegas Hotel
"Troubling Topics, Sacred Texts": Sacred texts continue to inspire a diversity of scholarship that seeks to transform the ancient into the contemporary, the remote into the immediate, and the distant into the visceral experience. At the same time, the texts confront a plethora of troubling topics. Reflecting the spirit of comparative studies in religion seriously engaging two or more religious traditions around a common topic and the recent publication of Troubling Topics, Sacred Texts: Readings in Hebrew Bible, New Testament, Qur’an (De Gruyter 2021), this panel focuses attention on how not only sacred texts themselves but their religious inflections function to manage, signify, and negotiate the most troubling of topics.
Criterion: A Journal of Literary Criticism seeks original, well-researched, and intellectually rigorous essays written from diverse critical perspectives and about texts from any time period or literary tradition.
Submissions to both the general section and the Forum should be between 3000 and 6000 words (not including the bibliography).

Lovecraft’s universe, but flips the script to make the heroes an African-American cast battling various demons in the Jim Crow era. Arguably, the show aimed at a re-appropriation or détournement of the pulp legend’s troubling racism, but critics seem divided on the show’s success. In Dr.
Working Title of the Volume: Wings, Wonders, and Warriors: Dragons in Children’s Literature and Graphic Novels
As the popularity of mythical creatures in films and literature grows, there is one creature that remains prominent: the dragon. Dragons have become most visible recently in the cinematic versions of The Hobbit and in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones Series).

This edited collection, “A Hero Will Endure”: Essays at the Twentieth Anniversary of Gladiator, still needs at least one essay on Juba. Any new critical or pop cultural perspectives will be considered.

For abstract submissions or questions, please email Rachel L. Carazo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
