Transnational Circuits of Asian Religio-Philosophy: Reception and Racialization in the US (Journal of Transnational American Studies Special Forum)

updated: 
Monday, March 25, 2024 - 1:14pm
Journal of Transnational American Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 1, 2024

This special forum links processes of Asian American racialization with the reception and circulation of Asian religio-philosophy in the US. In doing so, this forum builds on the foundation laid by a previous special forum titled Redefining the American in Asian American Studies, published in JTAS in 2012.

Nahi Hatenge / We Shall Not Move: Perspectives on Muslim belonging in South Asia

updated: 
Sunday, March 24, 2024 - 6:22am
Panel for Annual Conference of South Asia 2024 at Wisconsin-Madison
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 2, 2024

Panel Convener: Shahwar Kibria Maqhfi, UCLA. This panel aims to bring together diverse ideas of being Muslim in contemporary South Asia. We wish to explore multiple articulations and evidence of sameness through sound, image, text, performance, active recollection, and memory, in the context of increased otherisation. We are therefore interested in papers, which explore junctures, events, overlaps, and nodes, situated across time and space, which act as vestibules between the idea of “Muslimness” and “belonging”. Conceptions of Muslim belonging may not only be appended to notions of religiosity, but also explore linkages with class, caste, gender, hegemonies, place making, pioneership, and rootedness.

Going to the Movies with C.S. Lewis, Call for Chapters

An edited collection tentatively titled “Going to the Movies with C.S. Lewis” is seeking chapter submissions.   

Having been born many years after C.S. Lewis died I of course never had the opportunity to watch a movie with the man. However, over the years I feel, as many others probably feel as well, like Lewis accompanies me as I watch movies, read books, attend church services, and make other daily pursuits. Lewis’ works shape my thinking on many theological, educational, and cultural matters like few other authors’ works do.

Mythopoeic Society
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 15, 2024

The idea of “middle-ness” can suggest stability—the center of an object is less likely to break than its edges. It can also suggest the opposite: something in a state of change can be said to be in “the middle”—neither one thing nor another. Mythcon 53, located in the middle of the continental U.S., welcomes papers exploring the concept of “middle-ness” as it is worked out in fantasy, science fiction, and related genres. Paper topics can cover a wide range of possibilities, including but not limited to the following:

Humanity moves doggedly forward. We move in leaps, in fits, at times dragged, but we move forward all the same, sharp-stung by a tension our unique self-awareness gives us: the need to tear down and rebuild and the certainty to find it haunted by those same old ghosts. History reveals a constant cycle of destruction and renewal. Sometimes outside forces press change upon us: the hand of God scattering the nations at Babel or the devastation wrought by the Black Death in fourteenth-century Europe. Sometimes our own innovation kickstarts the change: the printing press, the Industrial Revolution, the iPhone.

Monday, April 15, 2024

Humankind has always sought to explain its origins and the mysteries of life to map personal and collective boundaries, and to secure its sense of identity through the power of everyday events and occurrences. Exemplary accounts of imaginary happenings and supernatural creatures from a time beyond history and memory explain the genesis of the universe, the making of a living thing, the formation of an attitude or the inception of an institution. The essence of these traditional narratives reflects a certain system of values and code of self-conduct of a group of individuals bound together by social and cultural ties, and the cardinal virtues and vices of human nature captured in a conventional configuration.
