For a prospective peer-reviewed cluster on Modernism/modernity’s Print Plus platform, we seek proposals for original essays that analyze the role of art and culture in building modern worlds in the aftermath of revolutions. Situated within the discourse of global modernisms, the transdisciplinary cluster probes whether there is something intrinsic to the post-revolutionary reconstructive moment that can be teased out through focused studies on contemporaneous constellations between the aesthetic and the political around the globe during the twentieth century.

CRISIS: “a time of great danger, difficulty, or confusion when problems must be solved or important decisions must be made” (OED)
"Tantra" has the distinction of being one of the few conceptions that simultaneously refers to intensely esoteric and antinomian systems of traditional mystical, magical, and occult practice deeply rooted in and contextualized in cultural specificity while also being used to describe popularized receptions that variously narrow its focus, broaden its scope, secularize it, moralize it, sanitize it, demonize it, and diabolize it. Sometimes popular conceptions also associate its practice with variant interpretations of concepts such as the "Left-Hand Path" that themselves have accrued a considerable range of both emic and etic significances frequently at odds with one another. Unlike abstractions such as the "Left-Hand Path," Tantra has retained a common t

Archetypal and Jungian psychology have a well-established and verified relationship with esoteric and occult worldviews, a circumstance demonstrated even more clearly with the publication of Jung's Liber Novus. However, while there is considerable literature on the intersections of the general background of psychodynamic origins with the occult milieu, they have been explored less systematically and also less sensationally. Similarly, while parapsychology occupies a significant place in popular cultural lore that overlaps with conspiracism and also the study of the paranormal, systematic inquiry into the relationship of scientific psychology with occult, esoteric, magical, and mystical worldviews has also been less prominent, though present non
"Sovereign Bodies, Movements, and Imaginaries"
The peer-reviewed journal Voces del Caribe invites proposals for a special issue titled “Sovereign Bodies, Movements, and Imaginaries” edited by Joshua Deckman (Marywood U) and Ana Ugarte (College of the Holy Cross). This issue is a follow-up to a series of panels to be presented in Spring 2021, which bring together faculty and graduate students from a broad array of disciplines with the aim of fostering collaborative research and activism. Our tasks: to identify and explore new paradigms for understanding “sovereignties” across the globe, and to construct new cartographies of cultural creation and circulation beyond the confines of modern nation-states.
The study of conspiracism overlaps with the study of esotericism, occultism, and magic in several respects. In addition to the frequent significance of secrecy and clandestine interactions in the history of esoteric, occult, and magical movements, their association (real or imagined) with heterodox religious movements, political subversion, and intelligence organizations has led to close association of these conceptions with each other in popular cultural imagination as well as in their own subcultural milieux. Esotericists, occultists, and magicians have themselves engaged in conspiracist conception, generated conspiracy theories, and projected them onto others, as well as themselves being the recipients of such projections by both religious and secula
