New Religious Movements in China

updated:

Religions
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 30, 2018

In the late 1970s, academics came to use the term New Religious Movement (NRM) to replace “cult” in light of the pejorative connotation in daily English. At the time, NRM referred to small religious groups whose membership was predominately in the first generation. The leaders’ authority derived from charisma and they promised exclusive means to access the ultimate source of the cosmos that they alone possessed. They held beliefs and practices that differed from the traditional ones in the surrounding religious environment, such as innovative interpretations of ancient scripture or rituals and an independent organization. They lack recognized legitimacy in the eyes of the religious establishment.

CFP - Myth and Fairy Tales

updated: 
Monday, October 16, 2017 - 12:34pm
SWPACA (Southwest Popular and American Culture Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 22, 2017

All scholars working in the areas of myth and/or fairy tales are invited to submit paper or panel proposals for the upcoming SWPACA Conference. Panels are now forming on topics related to all aspects of myths and fairy tales and their connections to popular culture. To participate in this area, you do not need to present on both myths and fairy tales; one or the other is perfectly fine. Presentations considering both genres are of course welcome and can stimulate interesting discussions. Proposals for forming your own Myth or Fairy Tale-focused panel – especially panels focused on one particular myth/tale – are encouraged.

Paper topics might include (but are certainly not limited to):

Almost all branches of modern science and scholarship, including humanities, can trace their existence back to at least early modern times when Latin was a common medium of European erudition.
