Religion, Method, Normativity 

Virginia Graduate Colloquium

Theology, Ethics, Culture

 University of Virginia

13-14 October 2017


Religions make normative claims and scholars have normative commitments. However, religious studies often conceives of itself as an empirical discipline, aligning itself with other disciplines that are ostensibly descriptive, like history, sociology, and anthropology. This tension has led to polarization within religious studies.

The Handbook to Horror Literature: Select Chapters Needed

Tuesday, April 25, 2017 - 12:24pm
Kevin Corstorphine and Laura Kremmel
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 30, 2017

Most handbooks on the subject of horror focus specifically on film, whereas books on the literary manifestations of horror tend to be bound to the idea of the “Gothic.” The current field of Gothic studies grows out of the study of Romanticism, and refers specifically to a late eighteenth-century genre, but has also come to denote a critical approach to literature, film, and culture, drawing on psychoanalysis, post structural criticism, feminist and queer theory. These perspectives are all to be included here, but the book responds to a growing sense that “horror” is itself a worthwhile focus of analysis.
