For an upcoming issue of the journal Radical History Review that focuses on religion and politics, we invite authors to write and submit short articles or essays (12-18 pages, double-spaced) to be published in a special forum exploring the theme "Converted Spaces." We envision the forum to include 3-5 pieces that explore the following questions:

How do physical spaces (buildings, streets, shrines, natural landscapes) function as sites of contestation among competing religious groups? How do such sites accommodate multiple religious faiths?

The Bible in the Nineteenth Century:
The Word and its Re-Wordings in British Literature and Thought

The Bible has played a significant part in British culture since the
Reformation. It has been a major reference not only in the field of
religious experience but also, more broadly, in artistic expression and
intellectual reflection. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the
Evangelical Revival placed the Scriptures at the heart of religious
practices and certain Romantics reasserted the importance of the Bible by
offering new readings.

The Bible in the Nineteenth Century: the Word and its Re-Wordings in Bristish Literature and Thought:

 

The Bible has played a significant part in British culture since the Reformation. It has been a major reference not only in the field of religious experience but also, more broadly, in artistic expression and intellectual reflection. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the Evangelical Revival thus placed the Scriptures at the heart of religious practices and certain Romantics reasserted the importance of the Bible in renewing its reading.

A CFP was issued last year about a volume being put together that will examine
the relationship between classical and biblical ideas in Great Britain and
Western Europe in the early modern period (c1536-1702).

For various reasons some authors had to pull out, and we have lost contact with
others whose email has apparantly changed, and we were not given new contact
details.

Yearbook, "Shakespeare and the Reformation" (co-edited with Glyn
Parry), the journal will sponsor a special session at the upcoming
Annual Meeting of the MLA (Washington, D.C., December 27-30, 2004).

For both the MLA Session and the concomitant issue of the Shakespeare
Yearbook we welcome proposals for papers that explore the ways in
which Shakespeare's plays and poems engage with the spiritual and
temporal consequences of religious change in Elizabethan and Jacobean
England.

*Sacred Tropes: Hebrew Bible, New Testament, and
Qur'an as Literary Works*

An important academic publisher has expressed great
interest in a collection of critical essays, *Hebrew
Bible, New Testament, and Qur'an as Literary Works.*
Well known scholars in the field from US, Canada, and
Europe are contributing. Seven out of the thirty
chapters are still needed.

Though much has been written about the Hebrew Bible
and New Testament, either individually or as a unit,
the combination of critical essays relating to all
three Abrahamic sacred texts does not occur.

Jesusland: An Issue (#72)

After the elections, comes the New Morality? That's the aim of the right-wing evangelicals who helped bring the Republican Party to power in the 2004 US elections. Beyond creating a third Bush administration, economic and religious conservatives now hold power in two branches of the federal government, control appointments to the judiciary, and dominate numerous state and local governments.

CFP - Queen: a journal of rhetoric and power

With the current American Presidential campaign under full swing, coming
after a two-year declaration of war against terror presented as a war of
"good" against "evil", a declaration often invoking God and
tapping into centuries-old tensions between religious allegiances,
the editors of Queen are announcing a call for submissions on
the Rhetoric of Religion in the Public Sphere.

UMBR(a) 2005:

On Religion

Psychoanalysis has acknowledged the foolishness of any so-called "turn to
religion," reminding us that the religious has always been in the air.
Rather than defensively insist on religion?s spectrality, psychoanalysis
breaks with modernity?s political anxiety in exposing the material truth of
what is at stake: belief as such. To what extent does the well-trodden
intersection of psychoanalysis and religion, the unconscious and faith,
demand a radical break from the politics of resignation that has of late
dominated our political landscape?

The New Contemplative Review, a journal formed to promote scholarship on the interface between culture and spirituality, seeks articles for its second issue, on Catholicism, due to appear in January 2005. It is hoped that this issue will explore themes relating to the histories, spiritualities, ideologies and material constructions of Catholicism in both past and contemporary cultures: subjectivity and meaning, as well as ideology, faith and questioning, bodies and the Church, medieval and medievalist accounts of Catholicism: issues of power and relationship between Catholics and non-Catholics: the Catholic Church in fiction and life-writing: the public presence of the Church in past and present.
