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.

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.

2020 marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Sir Walter Scott, a writer whose creativity affected the worlds of poetry and prose for generations.  He also played an important role in the study of government, justice, and historiography.  His writings was a primary source of operatic librettin in the 19th century, and his impact on the worlds of music, art, theatre, and jurisprudence lasted well into the 20th century.  In recent years, there has been a revival of interest in his work, and his birthday willl draw further attention to the creations of this polymath.
