To explore the tensions and intersections between religion and love (both sacred and secular) in global popular culture, the Journal of Popular Romance Studies calls for essays, interviews, and pedagogical materials for a special forum guest-edited by Lynn S. Neal (author of Romancing God: Evangelical Women and Inspirational Fiction). The deadline for submissions is December 1, 2012, and the forum is slated for publication in September, 2013.
Texts from all traditions, media, and periods are welcome.
Published by the International Association for the Study of Popular Romance (IASPR), the peer-reviewed Journal of Popular Romance Studies is the first academic journal to focus exclusively on representations of romantic love across national and disciplinary boundaries. Our editorial board includes representatives from English, Comparative Literature, Ethnomusicology, History, Religious Studies, African Diaspora Studies, and other fields. JPRS is available without subscription at http://jprstudies.org.
Please submit scholarly papers of no more than 10,000 words by December 1, 2012, to An Goris, Managing Editor firstname.lastname@example.org. Longer manuscripts of particular interest will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Submissions should be Microsoft Word documents, with citations in MLA format. Please remove all identifying material (i.e., running heads with the authorís name) so that submissions can easily be sent out for anonymous peer review. Suggestions for appropriate peer reviewers are welcome.
