Call for Papers for NeMLA 2022 panel "Literary Form, Spirituality, and Empire in the Global 20th Century"

updated: 
Wednesday, August 18, 2021 - 10:41am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This panel seeks to explore the interrelations between spirituality, global (anti)imperial politics, and literary form and practice in the twentieth century. There has been a commonly held scholarly contention that modern literature emerged out of a crisis of faith, if not an absolute death of God. Was such a crisis of faith related to global politics in the fin de siècle and later? If yes, how? How is secularist thought related to notions and imaginaries of the globe and of the world? Where did the other-worldly and the inner-worldly meet? How are the transcendental other and the imperial other interrelated in twentieth-century world literatures?

American Communes

C19: The Society for Nineteenth-Century Americanists
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 3, 2021

On July 4, 1826, Robert Owen delivered an oration that would go on to be known as the “Declaration of Mental Independence” in which he situated an ideology animating his experimental society in New Harmony, Indiana within an existing tradition of American liberty. Communal societies seek to reconstruct society in miniature, though in the 19th century several of these experiments ultimately aspired to reshape society on a grand scale.

We seek essays that explore 19th century American communitarian experiments as revisions, renewals, and reconstructions of existing institutions, cultures, and mores. Essays may explore:

  • tensions between the public and private in intentional communities

The taste of festivals forms a significant part of our life, and many festivals are associated with religion, remembrance, and prayer. Food during the religious holiday of Christmas can either make or break the holiday spirit; for example, the memory of having the best turkey, the best mince pies, and sitting around the Christmas tree warms many a heart. Carnival, another religious festival that is also a cultural event, has its own traditions regarding festival food.

Holy Waters: An Interdisciplinary Examination of Religion and Alcohol

Friday, October 1, 2021

Historian Marni Davis has suggested that “a people’s relation to alcohol... represents something deep about their relation to other people, and to the culture in which they live” (Davis 2012: 3). Like eating, drinking is a learned, constructed, cultivated and embodied cultural practice,and like food operates as a “highly condensed social fact” within a complex web of social relations (Dietler 2006: 396). It is no surprise that the production and use of alcohol have played an integral role in both formal and informal institutions throughout history.

Dissenting Beliefs: Heresy and Heterodoxy in Fantasy

updated: 
Wednesday, July 21, 2021 - 1:54pm
Centre for Fantasy and the Fantastic
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 31, 2021

Religious fantasy, for a great many readers, is synonymous with Christian fantasy; more specifically, it is understood as literature overtly reproducing biblical narratives within a fantasy world, such as C. S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia. Concurrently, fantasy texts engaging with theology through non-allegorical means that challenge mainstream Christian doctrine are all too often dismissed as disingenuous, offensive or deliberately antagonistic. While this is sometimes the case, such a narrow view of religious fantasy excludes all but the least innovative texts from the genre and leaves little room for authors of other faiths.

It is widely known that ideologies of racism, nationalism, and xenophobia are dangerous and spread all over the world. We want to examine these terms as much as possible, from many perspectives and variable aspects: in politics, society, psychology, culture, and many more. We also want to devote considerable attention to how the phenomena of racism, nationalism and xenophobia are represented in artistic practices: in literature, film, theatre or visual arts.

Religious Futurisms derives its intellectual inspiration from the emergence of Afrofuturism and other Alternative Futurisms as ideological and analytical frameworks in recent years. Religious Futurisms can manifest as ideology, criticality, prophecy, futurology, philosophy or artistic practice. They may be discerned in a wide range of forms, ranging from speculative theology to performative videogame interaction to abstract or polysemous imagery in visual art.

deadline for submissions:

 The Nathaniel Hawthorne Review invites submissions for a special issue on Hawthorne and Religion, with guest editor Jonathan A. Cook.  Over the course of his career, Hawthorne earned a reputation as the nation’s leading imaginative interpreter of New England Puritanism and its nineteenth-century cultural legacy, but the exact nature of his religious predilections remains open to debate.  Was he a bona fide Christian?  If he was, why didn’t he go to church?  What credence did Hawthorne give to his ancestral Calvinism?  What impact did his wife’s Unitarianism have on him?  Did Hawthorne have a well-kept “secret” that influenced his depiction of repressed guilt?  What did Hawthorne think of contemporary evangelical Protestantism, and of the nation’
