On April 30th, 2020, protesters flocked into Lansing, MI, to contest stay-at-home orders that slowed the spread of Covid-19. A number of the crowd carried assault rifles, Confederate flags, swastikas and nooses. Such displays of racism and violence prompt a questioning of the “right to protest” and “allowed” voice, especially when such displays harm people.

This year’s conference theme, “Cultures of Collectivity,” in some ways, seems tailor-made for the Religion and Literature permanent section. Religious communities, either local, national, or global, come to mind. However, we might also think of “collectivity” more broadly. Because the subject of Religion and Literature covers all genres, subgenres, regions, religions and folklore we welcome proposals that address works and writers who explore any aspect of “Cultures of Collectivity.”

Possible approaches to this topic might include examinations of how literature explores:

ON-LINE CONFERENCE

CFP:

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.

    Our first conference on racism, nationalism and xenophobia took place in March 2016. The second adition was held in June 2017. We hosted over 80 scholars representing universities and research institutions from all over the world.

Call for Papers/Creative Works: CFP EXTENDED until 10 May 2020

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.

Millenarianism, development of a new religious movement with political dimensions, apocalyptic sects or movements, all are of interest here if they seek the sudden dramatic transformation of society through violent or non-violent means.

According to Darcy Ribeiro (1995), the Brazilian people have religiosity as a cornerstone of its culture. It not only played a large role in its “civilizatory” process, but also stimulated resistance movements, among which are the ones in Canudos, Bahia, and Lagoinha, Goiás. Religion has remained a strong identity feature through all of Brazilian history and, still today, it is the center of relevant social conflicts. Nevertheless, there is, in the Brazilian literary scene, very little space dedicated to the study of the representation of individuals and/or religious doctrines. The academy, thus, fosters the shunning of literary works bearing relationship with the mystic, the religious or, anything, in any way, connected with the sacred.

In the age of post-liberalism, some of the inevitable consequences of what the geographer Neil Smith has called ‘uneven development’ are the various identity politics emerging out of the discontent of the ethnic and linguistically marginalized communities and the even more threatening waves of ‘religious resurgence’ and ‘religious fundamentalisms’ that desecrates the basic bonds of human life and its survival. However, what has stood resilient in the face of decades of abrasive change has been the rich heritage of a pluralist and harmonious existence that has fostered its unique variety of cosmopolitanism in multi-lingual, multi-ethnic and multi-faith societies.
