Religion and Utopia in American Literature

Recent scholarship excavates the politics of religions in American literature but has largely left untreated the utopian quality of religion. In many literary texts, religion provides bases for imagining new social relations. Reading religion as utopian invites us to look anew at the multivalent relations between religion and politics in American literature.

Certainty and Ambiguity: Essays on the Moral Imagination of Mystery Fiction

The editors seek previously unpublished critical essays for a new volume tentatively entitled Certainty and Ambiguity: Essays on the Moral Imagination of Mystery Fiction.  Perhaps one reason for the enduring appeal of mystery fiction is that it speaks to a deep longing in readers for that which often gets lost in modern/postmodern culture: to know what is true and just.  In a society that often seems devoid of order, the reader desires, even demands, a clear verdict for wrongdoing and injustice and a vindication for innocent victims. This yearning in avid mystery readers points to the need for moral stories.

Holidays are central components of culture. They can be celebratory or commemorative. They can be festive, merry, and joyous in their celebrations, or (also simultaneously) sombre, solemn, and reflective in their commemorations. They help us mark the calendar, highlight important sociocultural milestones, measure the passage of time, follow the turning of the seasons, and, in so doing, organize life and society.

Death - A Graduate Student Conference

Death casts a long shadow.  Its significance is not merely qua biological event, but as something that compels a response from us throught out lives.  Our responses have varied widely, according to what death is taken to be and which deaths (e.g., animal, environmental, that of others, one's own) are taken to be relevant.  Mourning rites, martyrdom, and philosophical consolation: the centrality of these and other such responses within religious forms of life attests to the power and productivity of death as a feature of being mortal.
