The editors of the volume in progress, _Mary Astell: Gender, Reason,
Faith_, propose to move the study of Astell to a mature phase, and to
accommodate a variety of disciplinary perspectives so that the broad
span of Astell's work can be understood in its manifold contexts. The
editors of the volume are soliciting essays not only on Astell's
already canonized works, but on the full range of her political,
theological, philosophical, and poetic writings. The volume, however,
will not eschew the more traditional scholarly interest in Astell's
concerns about gender; rather, it aspires to reveal how Astell's
reflections on gender were always mediated through her diverse set of

Revised call: Oprah Anthology

We are soliciting papers for an academic anthology on the phenomenon of
Oprah. It is undeniable that Oprah Winfrey has transcended the iconic
cult of celebrity to become a Western cultural force of the late-twentieth
and early twenty-first centuries. As her show nears its much anticipated
end — though its endless reproduction in syndication seems inevitable — it
seems appropriate to produce an anthology that evaluates the multifaceted
influences and implications of Oprah.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
