deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 3, 2021

On July 4, 1826, Robert Owen delivered an oration that would go on to be known as the “Declaration of Mental Independence” in which he situated an ideology animating his experimental society in New Harmony, Indiana within an existing tradition of American liberty. Communal societies seek to reconstruct society in miniature, though in the 19th century several of these experiments ultimately aspired to reshape society on a grand scale.

We seek essays that explore 19th century American communitarian experiments as revisions, renewals, and reconstructions of existing institutions, cultures, and mores. Essays may explore:

  • tensions between the public and private in intentional communities

Holy Waters: An Interdisciplinary Examination of Religion and Alcohol

Friday, October 1, 2021

Historian Marni Davis has suggested that “a people’s relation to alcohol... represents something deep about their relation to other people, and to the culture in which they live” (Davis 2012: 3). Like eating, drinking is a learned, constructed, cultivated and embodied cultural practice,and like food operates as a “highly condensed social fact” within a complex web of social relations (Dietler 2006: 396). It is no surprise that the production and use of alcohol have played an integral role in both formal and informal institutions throughout history.
