Special Virtual Panel CFP Esoteric, Occult, and Magical Conspiracism at Southwest Popular/American Culture Association (deadline Dec 27) (conference Feb 22-27)

The study of conspiracism overlaps with the study of esotericism, occultism, and magic in several respects.  In addition to the frequent significance of secrecy and clandestine interactions in the history of esoteric, occult, and magical movements, their association (real or imagined) with heterodox religious movements, political subversion, and intelligence organizations has led to close association of these conceptions with each other in popular cultural imagination as well as in their own subcultural milieux.  Esotericists, occultists, and magicians have themselves engaged in conspiracist conception, generated conspiracy theories, and projected them onto others, as well as themselves being the recipients of such projections by both religious and secula

Archetypal and Jungian psychology have a well-established and verified relationship with esoteric and occult worldviews, a circumstance demonstrated even more clearly with the publication of Jung's Liber Novus.  However, while there is considerable literature on the intersections of the general background of psychodynamic origins with the occult milieu, they have been explored less systematically and also less sensationally.  Similarly, while parapsychology occupies a significant place in popular cultural lore that overlaps with conspiracism and also the study of the paranormal, systematic inquiry into the relationship of scientific psychology with occult, esoteric, magical, and mystical worldviews has also been less prominent, though present non

COSMOPOLITAN STRANGERS IN LATINA/O LITERATURE AND CULTURE

This volume sets out to identify and analyze current definitions of the figure of the stranger, as well as ‘rooted’ or ‘vernacular’ cosmopolitanism at work in Latina/o literature with a cosmopolitan outlook that runs counter to discourses that criminalize ‘strangers’. While necessarily examining the workings of xenophobia, racism, gendering and othering in that specific context, we will focus on the alternative processes of interaction, conviviality, and inclusive practices.

CfP for Edited Collection on Jesmyn Ward

updated: 
Sunday, November 22, 2020 - 6:05pm
Maria Torres-Quevedo
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 28, 2021

Jesmyn Ward is a two-time winner of the National Book Award, winner of the 2013 National Book Critics Circle Award, and a recipient of the MacArthur “genius grant.” Known for her critically acclaimed fiction and non-fiction, Ward’s lyrical narratives of Black life, home, and family in Louisanna’s Gulf Coast are visceral and evocative. Moreover, while her work is often set in the same geographical region, the concerns explored within it stretch beyond the shores of the Gulf Coast, extending if not physically then cosmologically toward the Caribbean and the African continent. Yet, despite the critical celebration and geopolitical breadth of her work, Ward remains remarkably under-studied, particularly outside the United States.
