Thresholds and Threshold Concepts 

Saturday, February 29, 2019

 

Call for Papers: 

In a physical sense, a threshold is the bottom of a doorway that must be crossed to enter into a room. Kathleen Blake Yancey views threshold concepts as the “articulation of shared beliefs” that leads to the “modification, extension, and boundary marking” of spaces in social, professional, academic and other communities. Threshold concepts are entry points of knowledge that impact ideas and participants in discourse communities.

Religion and Utopia in American Literature

Recent scholarship excavates the politics of religions in American literature but has largely left untreated the utopian quality of religion. In many literary texts, religion provides bases for imagining new social relations. Reading religion as utopian invites us to look anew at the multivalent relations between religion and politics in American literature.

Certainty and Ambiguity: Essays on the Moral Imagination of Mystery Fiction

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - 2:28pm

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 1, 2020

The editors seek previously unpublished critical essays for a new volume tentatively entitled Certainty and Ambiguity: Essays on the Moral Imagination of Mystery Fiction.  Perhaps one reason for the enduring appeal of mystery fiction is that it speaks to a deep longing in readers for that which often gets lost in modern/postmodern culture: to know what is true and just.  In a society that often seems devoid of order, the reader desires, even demands, a clear verdict for wrongdoing and injustice and a vindication for innocent victims. This yearning in avid mystery readers points to the need for moral stories.

deadline for submissions:

Academics, journalists, NGOs, and institutions of global governance increasingly speak of ‘environmental migrants’ and ‘climate refugees.’ But what separates an environmental migrant or climate refugee from another migrant, refugee, or asylum-seeker? If the focus is on the prefix, our primary legal framework for making sense of cross-border migration—the United Nations 1951 Refugee Convention and 1967 Protocol—does not acknowledge the effects of climate change as a legitimate ground for refugee status.
