Radical Orthodoxy: A Journal of Theology, Philosophy and Politics is an internationally peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the exploration of academic and policy debates that interface between theology, philosophy and the social sciences. The editorial policy of the journal is radically non-partisan and the journal welcomes submissions from scholars and intellectuals with interesting and relevant things to say about the nature and trajectory of the times in which we live. The journal intends to publish papers on all branches of philosophy, aesthetics - including literary, art and music criticism - as well as pieces on ethical, political, social, economic and cultural theory.

In Jean-Luc Nancy's The Inoperative Community representations are not just works of art (oeuvre); they also, in fact, work. Representations present "community" and thereby give a disparate group of beings an identity, borders, and a body. If representations work, what happens when a work founders, when it falls apart, and opens onto something else? Would this opening then be the place or space of play, even serious play? What does this "absence of work" look like formally? What are the ethical consequences of such playful interruptions? Papers on non-mainstream directors are of particular interest.
Within the post modern context, are vampirism and race both free floating signifiers in search of a signified? Are they overdetermined signifiers, crammed with multiple significations?
This panel will look at race and vampire narratives in film, television, books, and other popular media. Topics could include: race in the Underwold series; re-evaluations of Blacula, Blacula Screams, and Ganja and Hess; Lafayette in "True Blood" and the Southern Vampire series; Octavia Butler's "Fledgling"; Jewelle Gomez, "The Gilda Stories"; Brandon Massey's "Dark Corner" and Steven King's "Salems Lot"; L. A. Banks' Vampire Huntress; Blade as vampire and vampire hunter.

"Echoes of Trauma: Exploring the Intersections of Trauma and Culture"
New Critical Perspectives on the 'Trace'
University of Málaga
20-22 October, 2011
This panel, proposed for the 2011 American Literature Association convention in Boston, will investigate the intersections of time, memory, and region in American Literature of the 19th and 20th centuries. What are the consequences of considering time as Bergsonian duration, or from the perspective of Heidegger, Sartre, or Deleuze? How is time as space related to the idea of time as geographical location? Considerations might include older views, such as Sartre on Faulkner, or newer work, such as Wai Chee Dimock's ideas of "deep time" and nation-states in American literature.
