Rhetoric of Religion in the Public Sphere - Extended Deadline
Call for Papers Deadline:
CFP - Queen: a journal of rhetoric and power
"Rhetoric of Religion in the Public Sphere"
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. We anticipate submissions from students of history and biblical studies, as well as from public sphere theorists, anthropologists, students of literature, modern media critics, even philosophers of science. Religious rhetoric suffuses the cultural landscape, making its impact felt subtly and obviously, in many different areas of culture, thought and expression.
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 website listed below and click on the links to 'Queen'.
Please email your *abstracts* to firstname.lastname@example.org or
email@example.com by 31 October 2004.
