CFP: Interdisciplinary Essays on the Apotropaic (2/15/06; collection)

updated: 
Wednesday, December 21, 2005 - 7:03pm
Gregory Marks

Call for Essays

 

Seeking essays for an interdisciplinary collection tentatively titled “The Shield of Perseus: Essays on the Apotropaic.”

 

The apotropaic (Gr., “to turn away from”) constitutes a class of rituals intended to ward off evil. Jane Ellen Harrison investigated their presence in ancient Greek religion, but the term has wide application in the humanities. The apotropaic often uses the horrible to repel the horrible (e.g., the evil eye, the head of Medusa); thinkers as diverse as Freud, Paglia, Derrida, and Spivak have found it a topic worthy of comment.

Please find attached the Call for Papers for disClosure 16 - Emotions.

Thanks,
Brandon Absher

Emotion plays an undeniably important role in our lives. Yet, social theor=
y has tended to focus most often on the cognitive aspects of human social=
 living. In our attempts to understand human life as a social phenomenon=
 perhaps we have overlooked something just as important; something even f=
undamental. In this issue of disClosure, we seek to begin to redress thi=
s oversight =E2=80=93 we seek to think emotion from within the ambit of s=
ocial theory. =20
