With the current American Presidential campaign under full swing, coming
after a two-year declaration of war against terror presented as a war of "good" against "evil", a declaration often invoking God and
tapping into centuries-old tensions between religious allegiences,
the editors of Queen are announcing a call for submissions on
the Rhetoric of Religion in the Public Sphere.
Submissions are sought from all areas of the humanities and arts. We are particularly interested in articles, photo essays, even multimedia presentations exploring the ways in which religion, religious tradition and institutions, and the conflation of civil function and religious rhetoric are shaping the current political climate throughout the world. Topics can explore all regions of the world and all eras, but we would particularly encourage works focusing upon the contemporary scene.
Queen is an electronic, refereed journal, and we are committed to
encouraging the use of the full potential of this publication medium. We publish academic articles, journalistic pieces, poetry, photographic essays, and multi-media/HTML formats, or any hybrid combination of the above.
All submissions should include a brief abstract of the work. Photos
should be sent as JPEG files. Video clips should be sent as QuickTime files. If accepted, you will work with the editors to provide a web-friendly version of your submission, and will be asked for a personal photo and brief (two-line) bio.
Please visit the web address given below and click on the links to 'Queen'.
Please email your abstracts (full work also accepted, but must include an abstract) to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com by 30 September 2004 (deadline is flexible).
