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

CFP: Nathaniel Hawthorne Society ALA 2021

The annual conference of the American
Literature Association will be held at the Westin Copley Place in Boston, MA on
July 7-11, 2021. The Nathaniel Hawthorne Society seeks proposals for the
following panel:



 



Hawthorne and Fatherhood



 



We invite proposals for papers exploring
aspects of “Hawthorne and Fatherhood.” This may include, but is not limited to:
Hawthorne as father; Julian’s and Rose’s memories of their father; missing
fathers (as in Hawthorne’s own); father stand-ins, such as grandfather in "Grandfather’s
Chair"; Dimmesdale as deadbeat father or Chillingworth as want-to-be
father, leaving his money to Pearl; Coverdale and Hollingsworth avoiding
fatherhood, though the latter wants to be some great paternal figure; barren
men and husbands, as in The House of Seven Gables; or other fathers in
Hawthorne’s shorter fiction.



 



Please submit abstracts of approximately
250 words to Nancy Sweet nsweet@csus.edu by February 15, 2021.
