米ホーソーン協会の活動およびメンバーシップの更新について

June 3, 2021 付の便りです。


Dear Friends & Members of the Nathaniel Hawthorne Society,



 



I hope this summer finds you well and brings relief from the burdens
of the past year and a half. 



 



We are working diligently to revitalize the Hawthorne Society after a
difficult time, including two exciting panels (in person!) at the upcoming ALA
conference in Boston: “Hawthorne & Fathers,” 3 p.m. Thurs. 7/8 and
“Hawthorne & Aesthetics” 3:30 p.m. Fri. 7/9, followed by our annual meeting
(
Use this link to register for the ALA).  Next
January at the MLA in Washington, D.C., we have another interesting panel on
“Hawthorne and Play.”   We hope to see
some of you in Boston and D.C. in coming months. 



 



Upcoming issues of The Nathaniel Hawthorne Review, once again under
the able editorship of Monika Elbert, include feature articles on Hawthorne and
the short story and a special issue on Hawthorne and pandemic thinking. Monika
has gathered an outstanding range of scholarship in these issues that you will
not want to miss. 



 



And that brings me to the ask: Please renew your NHS membership
as soon as possible to ensure timely delivery of the next issues of the Hawthorne
Review
.  We can mail copies only to
current members, and we don’t want you to miss an issue.  (If you received this email, your membership
needs to be renewed.)



 



Membership renewals can be done through PayPal on our website here, including a new option of automatic, annual renewal.  



 



If you prefer, checks may be mailed to our Treasurer, Michael Martin
at the address listed on the webpage. 



 



Thank you for supporting our mission of advancing the study,
appreciation, and enjoyment of the works of Nathaniel Hawthorne (and family,
friends, and associates)!



 



Best wishes,



 



Chuck Baraw,
President

CFP: The Nathaniel Hawthorne Review

Charles Baraw先生より、米国ホーソーン協会の機関誌へのCFPの案内がございましたので、お知らせいたします。


Greetings, Hawthorne Discussion Group members,

 

The Nathaniel Hawthorne Review invites submissions for a special issue on Hawthorne and Religion, with guest editor Jonathan A. Cook.  


Over the course of his career, Hawthorne earned a reputation as the nation’s leading imaginative interpreter of New England Puritanism and its nineteenth-century cultural legacy, but the exact nature of his religious predilections remains open to debate.  Was he a bona fide Christian?  If he was, why didn’t he go to church?  What credence did Hawthorne give to his ancestral Calvinism?  What impact did his wife’s Unitarianism have on him?  Did Hawthorne have a well-kept “secret” that influenced his depiction of repressed guilt?  What did Hawthorne think of contemporary evangelical Protestantism, and of the nation’s increasingly varied religious denominations?  What does Hawthorne’s fiction say about his attitude to Unitarianism, Congregationalism, Catholicism, Quakers, and Shakers?  How do Hawthorne’s journals, sketches, stories, and novels chronicle the religious currents of his era?   Other general areas of exploration include Hawthorne and the Bible, Hawthorne and Milton, Hawthorne and the demonic, Hawthorne and the history and doctrines of New England Puritanism, Hawthorne’s religious psychology, and Hawthorne and Christian myth (notably Creation, Fall, and Apocalypse).  Subject matter and critical approaches are open.  Those interested should send a 250-word abstract to jcookinscrutable@gmail.com by October 1,  2021. 

 

Best wishes,

Chuck
