Humanities
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 28, 2022

Dear Colleagues,

Much of the Western world has a rising problem with white nationalists. These white supremacists often co-opt fields like Classics, medievalism, and Norse mythology to support their racist ideologies—twisting these disciplines and repressing or ignoring evidence for the multicultural and multiracial realities of the ancient and medieval world. In terms of Classics, these distortions and appropriations have been documented by an emerging generation of scholars like Donna Zuckerberg, Dan-el Padilla Peralta, Curtis Dozier, Sarah Bond, and others. Ancient myth, literature, and symbols continue to pervade modern culture.

CALL FOR PAPERS: The CEA Critic, Special Issue: “Impediments to Student Success”

For the past year (and more), teachers at all levels, across disciplines, and, indeed, around the globe have been working overtime to ensure their students’ success in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID presented a set of obstacles new to most of us. At the same time, COVID called our attention to obstacles that have interrupted our students’ paths since long before the pandemic. These obstacles, which have only become more obvious, are what we now wish to explore.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 31, 2022

 I am recruiting contributors for a collection of scholarly essays with the working title Starcrossed Century: Astrology in Global Society from World War One to Covid. The book is designed to address the identification of the history of astrology with "premodern" history. The historiography of astrology is very active and intellectually exciting, but it focuses almost entirely on the period before 1800. Yet never have there been more astrological believers and practitioners than today. So far I have committments for two essays, one (by me) on American astrologers and COVID, and one on astrology and identity in the sixties counterculture. I want to avoid too heavy a focus on the Anglophone world (although I would love a serious essay on astrology
