I am organizing a panel in response to this year's call for papers from the Religion and Popular Culture Unit of the American Academy of Religion. In particular, I am responding to the call for papers on the topic of "Fictional Religions in Film, Literature, and Other Media." The creation of fictional worldviews is a fascinating aspect of robust worldmaking and mythopoesis, and the phenomenon suggests all sorts of interesting questions about the relationship between artistic creativity and the religious imagination, the dis- or re-enchanted qualities of the secular, the role of mass media in forming our worldviews, ways of life, and identities, and other issues.

WRITING LIVES IN EUROPE, 1500-1700University College Dublin, 6-8 September 2018 Call for Papers  This conference on life writing/self writing will address questions related to life writing across Europe between1500-1700, in particular the influence of different religious, social, cultural and national perspectives on theemergence of various forms of self-writing. We are particularly interested in relationships, connections, textualtraffic and circulation across Europe through networks such as intellectual circles/coteries, religious orders, andthe experience of exiled communities. Life writing has long historical roots, but such writings are arguably thefirst examples of demotic, vernacular writing in the period.

The 75th annual South Central Modern Language Association convention will be held in San Antonio, Texas from October 11-14 at the historic Menger Hotel on the River Walk, right next door to the Alamo. San Antonio is the perfect city for this year’s theme, “Crossroads of Cultures.” Through the art, architecture and design of the city, it is evident that there were, and are, different cultures crossing paths and influencing each other, now and over the past several centuries. San Antonio is a cultural kaleidoscope that began with the native indigenous peoples who made their home here. The arrival of the Spanish people and, later, the Anglos, resulted in a new culture that permeates almost every place in the United States: the Hispanic American culture.
