Please consider submitting a manuscript for our special issue, Opening the Ecological Text, in the peer-reviewed, open-access journal, Humanities. Here is the call for papers and the link where you can submit:
[When this call for abstracts was submitted two months ago, we all lived in a different world. Recognizing that academic lives have been disrupted as we have adjusted to online teaching as well as other responsibilities at home, I have extended the deadline for abstracts. I also realize that many scholars have not been able to go to their offices or institution library during this time and consult materials. If this is your situation and you still want to submit an abstract, please send me an email and I will work with you.]

"Magic. A Companion"
Edited by Katharina Rein
We are seeking one or two chapters to fill out our edited collection Religion and the Medieval and Early Modern Global Marketplace (already under contract with Routledge). Ideally the chapter(s) would provide a case study that addresses some intersection of economy (market, exchange) and religion (faith, sprituality) in medieval and/or early modern Africa. How did matters of faith enter the marketplace in a specific region of Africa? How did religion facilitate or provide resistance to the growing slave trade? How did religions adapt to changing markets?

Veterans Studies is a growing field of research that addresses the significant impact of military personnel transitioning from active duty to civilian life. This special panel session invites papers that explore any aspect of military service in literature, including those that reflect the conference theme of “City of God, City of Destruction.” Outside the trauma of military existence is the rich sense of community that exists in the brotherhood of service to one’s country. Military bases are cities unto their own. They exist as denizens of destruction. This session invites papers that explore the many facets of military experience exhibited in literature, theater, film, and poetry written about or by military veterans.
The introduction of movable type print in late fifteenth-century Europe began with the noble aspiration of making the Word of God available for all, most famously exemplified by the Gutenberg Bible. How could early printers have foreseen that their work would prepare the ground for the violence and social turmoil that would follow in the Reformation. Texts, broadly defined, were experiencing a powerful transformation. The trust that people placed in texts came under severe strain even as they were more readily available than ever before. Texts of all kinds—the sermon of the local clergyman, a pamphlet expressing a political view, poetry, plays, even the Word of God itself—required new methods and systems for declaring their trustworthiness.
The Journal of Gender, Ethnic, and Cross-Cultural Studies is an interdisciplinary journal with the primary goal to facilitate the examination of the intersection among gender, cultural, and ethnic studies. Published biannually, this journal seeks to invigorate discussions of the global mobilization of people, ideas, and capital, and the ways in which this circulation has influenced conceptions of gender, ethnicity/race, migration, and culture. In the very same way, the journal examines the gendered nature of cultures and cultural encounters across borders. It is committed to facilitating intersectional, interdisciplinary dialogue which results from the crossing of disciplinary boundaries.

Holidays are central components of culture. They can be celebratory or commemorative. They can be festive, merry, and joyous in their celebrations, or (also simultaneously) sombre, solemn, and reflective in their commemorations. They help us mark the calendar, highlight important sociocultural milestones, measure the passage of time, follow the turning of the seasons, and, in so doing, organize life and society.
