Journal of Men, Masculinities and Spirituality

Journal of Men, Masculinities and Spirituality (JMMS) is an online, scholarly, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal. JMMS is published twice a year with provision for other special editions. JMMS seeks to be as inclusive as possible in its area of inquiry. Papers address the full spectrum of masculinities and sexualities, particularly those which are seldom heard. Similarly, JMMS addresses not only monotheistic religions and spiritualities but also Eastern, indigenous, new religious movements and other spiritualities which resist categorization. Articles and reviews are welcome at any time. JMMS will also consider previously published work if it is not available elsewhere on the internet, and the author holds the rights to re-publish.

[UPDATE] CFP: Horror Ad Nauseam: The Changing Face of Horror

Call for Papers: Horror Ad Nauseam
Volume 6.2 of Cinephile, the Film Journal of the University of British Columbia

Deadline for Abstracts: 30 June 2010
Deadline for draft submissions 30 July 2010.

The horror genre continues to regenerate itself ad nauseam. On one hand, the genre may be liberating itself from the weight of many formulaic straight-to-video films that have tainted its image over the past two decades, re-imagining itself through the quintessential films that defined horror cinema in the 1970s and 80s. On the other hand, the genre has perhaps reached a moment of hyper-intertextualization to the point where it has literally mined itself dry of new ideas.

Serial Narratives and Temporality

updated: 
Tuesday, June 15, 2010 - 8:22pm
NeMLA Convention 2011, Rutgers University

This panel addresses the various relationships between seriality and temporality.
The serial principle has a important influence on contemporary culture: novels, movies and television shows, comic books, video games, etc. are published in series. Consequently, this principle largely informs contemporary ways of conceiving, producing and making sense of narratives in general. This panel wants to locate the importance of seriality within our present-day mediascape.

Vegetarians, VILFs and Fang-Bangers: Moden Vampire Romance in print and on screen, 24 November 2010

updated: 
Tuesday, June 15, 2010 - 11:15am
De Montfort University, Leicester, UK

Vampires have had a long and complex relationship with human beings and have been threatening and attracting us through folklore, literature, film and television for centuries. But now they walk among us, seeking to integrate themselves into our culture, to be our business partners, friends and lovers. Why do we now prefer our vampires with a sensitive nature or with their ruthlessness focused on business deals? How does this change affect the relationship between both species and genders? This one-day conference seeks to understand and criticise the phenomenal popularity of what is sometimes termed Dark Romance. Papers are sought on authors such as Stephanie Meyers, Charlene Harris, and Lauren K.

CALL FOR PAPERS

"Before and After Toynbee: conceiving the Industrial Revolution during the long nineteenth century".

A one-day symposium to be held in Cambridge on September 23 2010, comprising a keynote talk by Professor Donald Winch (Sussex) and three panels of short papers.

This symposium aims to ask questions of the way industrialization was conceived both before and after Toynbee's "Lectures" in 1884, and to address the evolving idea of industrialism in the course of the long nineteenth century.
