Submissions are sought for a multi-disciplinary anthology about the role of female figures in dystopian narratives.  Thomas More’s coined term of “utopia” seems to be a Latin pun: it is used in the sense of eu-topia, a "good place" or "ideal society," which More claimed was his intended sense, but the spelling of u-topia means "nowhere" and is often taken to suggest that eutopia is impossible, as well as, nonexistent.

deadline for submissions:

We invite papers exploring any aspect of religion, spirituality, and the sacred in Wharton’s work, including the afterlives of religion in gothic, aestheticism, or satire. How does Wharton conceptualize belief, spirituality, or religious tradition within modernity? What place does the sacred have in her writing, and where are the sacred spaces in her work? Are there distinctive features to Wharton’s discussions of religious architecture or sacred art? What interactions take place between Wharton’s fiction and the Bible, or religious texts and genres? How does Wharton’s anthropological eye address religious movements, practices, or characters?

We also hope to encourage a more integrative framework upon which to build the future of the field.
