A CFP was issued last year about a volume being put together that will examine
the relationship between classical and biblical ideas in Great Britain and
Western Europe in the early modern period (c1536-1702).

For various reasons some authors had to pull out, and we have lost contact with
others whose email has apparantly changed, and we were not given new contact
details.

Special issue of *Social Semiotics*:

Mediated Citizenship(s)

The concept of citizenship is under attack and revision from all sides.
Scholars, politicians and pundits alike decry the decline of participation in
conventional politics. Some view mass media as the culprits of growing
disenchantment among citizens. At the same time, recent years have also seen the
rise of new social movements and forms of activism, which involve new
generations of citizens. Global flows of capital, people, and media content
present new challenges to citizenship.

refereed, bi-annual publication launched in 2004 by members of the
Communications and Subjectivity research group at London Metropolitan
University. It seeks to explore current thinking about subjectivity, to
cross disciplinary boundaries and to challenge critical orthodoxy in the
process. It is dedicated to debate on the nature of the subject and its
various characterisations, especially in modernity. The journal seeks to
go beyond the restrictions of poststructuralist/postmodernist paradigms
and to avoid the cliques and the clichés that poststructuralism has
naturalized. As such, it seeks to invite papers from researchers in
