Representing Jerusalem in World Literature and Art: Sacred Space and Sacred History - Call for Book Chapters

updated: 
Tuesday, November 28, 2023 - 12:17pm
Harvard University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 15, 2023

Jerusalem is the most sacred space in the world uniting mainstream religious traditions and representing various cultures and ethnicities; this city is the holiest for Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The Holy Jerusalem Itself is also a hierotopic place, presenting a spatial icon associated with God’s presence and the sacredness of history. Human history is not only the history of constant wars. It is the history of creation and ongoing spiritual work. Central to the Old and New Testaments, the Hebrew Bible emphasizes the Jewish sacred connection with the city. This holy space is also a cradle of Christianity. In this edited volume, Jerusalem and its representations will be explored through the lens of world literature, art, and films.

Senses of Law

Law is heard, seen, experienced, felt, and understood in many ways. This year’s theme invites submissions on legal senses, sensibilities, and sensations. What satisfies “the sense of justice”? What makes for a legal sensation? How does law depend on, appeal to, or defy common sense(s)? What are the different sensibilities that law creates, cultivates, challenges, and ignores? How do the meanings that law takes for granted, or brings into being, fall differently on different ears?
