New Age and Neopagan Medievalisms

Call for Submissions

New Age and Neopagan Medievalisms

We welcome contributions to a collection of essays that explores the medieval in New Age and Neopagan movements. Scholars of Religious Studies, Gender Studies, Art History, Music History, and Cultural Studies, as well as historians and literary critics, are particularly encouraged to contribute.

Current topics included in the volume:

n New Age appropriations of Kabbalah

n The medieval in New Age masculinities

n Hermeneutics and medieval-themed tarot decks

n Hildegard in the New Age

Abstracts of approximately 500 words and a brief academic bio should be sent to Dr. Karolyn Kinane at by December 1, 2011. Abstracts should clearly articulate how the article will advance theoretical and cultural understandings of medievalism and/or New Age and Neopagan movements. Acceptance of the abstract does not guarantee inclusion in the volume.

Upon preliminary acceptance, contributors will be asked to submit articles of approximately 7,000 words by August 1, 2012. Editors reserve the right to reject articles that do not meet editorial standards. We anticipate a Fall/Winter 2013 publication date.
