Sacred texts and folklore are filled with stories of twins, doubles and doppelgängers, struggling with one another for control of their worlds, and writers have continued to borrow, adapt, appropriate those themes and characters to tell the stories of their own times.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Papers for this session may focus on any aspect of Walker Percy’s life and works, either fiction or non-fiction.  Especially welcome are topics relevant to the South Atlantic Modern Longauge Association's 2019 conference theme: “Languages: Power, Identity, Relationships.”  For Percy, the human capacity for language and for naming gives us our identity and is only possible through relationships of intersubjectivity.  Percy wrote extensively on language, creating his “radical anthropology” based on his unique semiotic, with these themes pervasive in his novels.  For more information about conference theme, see:  https://samla.memberclicks.net/

This flightless, multi-site conference (Sept. 18-21, 2019) invites interdisciplinary attention to confluences between environmental and religious perspectives and practices in the long Anglophone nineteenth century (1780-1900). Since that century, anthropogenic climate change has rapidly accelerated, and in response to this legacy we will avoid air travel by digitally connecting events at several conference sites in the United States and the United Kingdom. In addition, this method of networking, by lowering barriers of cost and transportation, promises to enable a more diverse and inclusive range of participation than is often possible at international conferences.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 22, 2019

Conference Date: April 4-6, 2019

 

Why are space and place important categories for the study of religion? What role do these categories have in formulating concepts of religion? Scholars have attempted to not only theorize space but also to employ it in their work to better understand how humans interact with the spaces around them. These spaces are not confined to physical spaces. We invite papers that address, ask, and employ any discussion regarding space or place concering religion. Scholarly work is not restricted to one single field, and neither is this conference! We welcome proposals from all fields of interest and relevant disciples.

 

Living and travel expenses are covered by the department. 

 

Barbarous Tongues: Middle English and Beyond

updated: 
Wednesday, February 6, 2019 - 12:25pm
MLA Middle English Forum
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 3, 2019

Middle English language and literature’s status is a perennial matter of debate, whose immediate political subtexts include race, class, gender, and nation. Middle English texts themselves categorize barbarous tongues, mother tongues, lay and learned languages. How do medieval linguistic taxonomies politicize identity and territory, medieval or postmedieval? Can we locate concepts like the vulgar tongue and vernacular eloquence in our current critical lexicon? What is at stake in contemporary deployments of categories like classical, vernacular, or sacred language and world, national, provincial, or cosmopolitan language? How do these and other linguistic terms participate in the broader cultural politics of labels like barbarism and civilization?

Theology of Marilynne Robinson in a Postsecular Age

updated: 
Wednesday, January 16, 2019 - 10:34am
American Literature Association (Boston; May 2019)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 31, 2019

Marilynne Robinson has written widely-acclaimed novels and essays that explore the relationship between religion and culture.   Marilynne Robinson Society at the 2019 American Literature Association (ALA) Conference is soliticing proposals that examine how recent developments in post-secular studies can illuminate Robinson’s religious vision. Jurgen Habermas, Talal Asad, Charles Taylor, Jared Hickman, Tracy Fessensden, among other scholars, have led us to reconsider the secularization thesis and the ways in which it has shaped narratives of modernity. We ask how Robinson’s investigation of faith is especially relevant to the growing field of postsecular studies.

What is love? Why is it so important in our lives? And why should we think about it? The subject of love is of enormous importance to our daily lives, as love sustains us and gives meaning to existence. Yet, love seems to be a theme that is underdeveloped in contemporary research. Whatever the reason for that is, love remains one of the central concepts in the history of Western thought. Not only does philosophy literally mean “love for wisdom,” but the discussion of the theme of love has been part philosophy’s inheritance since the time of Plato’s Symposium.

Much attention has been given to recent American studies showing a dramatic increase in the numbers of those who distance themselves from religious affiliation. Here in Quebec, it is approximately 50 years since the Quiet Revolution, a political movement that wrested control over health and education from the Catholic Church to a secular government. Today in Montreal, fewer than 4% of the population regularly attends mass, a trend that echoes the situation in Europe (1).
