In keeping with this year’s MMLA conference theme of “Cultures of Collectivity”, this panel solicits propositions that reflect on the many ways in which the individual and the collective were conceived in pre-revolutionary society. Rather than viewing the individual and the collective as being separate facets of social existence, papers that look at the liminal movement between subjective experience and the larger political body will be of particular interest. Possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to:
CALL FOR PAPERS
for a topical issue of Open Theology
"Women and Gender in the Bible and the Biblical World”
Zanne Domoney-Lyttle (University of Glasgow)
Sarah Nicholson (University of Glasgow)
This panel is dedicated to discussing Eastern/Russian Orthodox traditions, morality, culture, hagiography, iconography, mysticism, practices, monasticism, and beliefs as they pertain to (or appear within) Russian and Slavic literature. Discussions of religious influence are critical to the study of many of the greatest Russian authors and poets--Dostoevsky and Tolstoy amongst many others. Still, little scholarship has explored how both Dostoevsky and Tolstoy had extraordinarily different views of the Orthodox faith and of Christianity in general, and how this might have influenced their existential perspectives of life and death, meaning and purpose, as well as their works.
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.
Performance, Religion, and Spirituality
Call for Papers, vol 3. no 1
With a special section on ‘Religious Life in the Time of COVID-19’
We invite authors to submit articles for the upcoming issue of Performance, Religion and Spirituality. We seek scholarly articles and reviews of performances and books, as well as contributions to our “Forum” section, which highlights practical work and profiles artists.
The following special session has been accepted for the 2020 Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association conference being held at the University of Nevada Las Vegas November 12th through Sunday November 15, 2020.
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:
2020 International eConference on Religion and the Holocaust
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.
Volume 7, Issue 1 (2020) Documenting the Holidays, Special Issue of the Proceedings from the Document Academy
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.
JSR: Journal for the Study of Radicalism—an academic journal published by Michigan State University Press—announces a call for articles and reviews for our fifteenth year of issues.
CFA: Religious Radicalism
We are interested in articles that explore specific subjects related to religious forms of radicalism, be it a radical individual, a radical group, a movement, some other type or manifestation of religious radicalism. 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.
