The scope of the list for the past couple of days is broad. There are some incredible options for our cohorts on H-Pennsylvania.
The majority of posts are CFPs for conferences and journals. Please visit the sites as some are within Pennsylvania borders and easy to travel to. At least one international conference is offering presentations via Skype!
We wish you the best in this new Academic year. Be sure to forward the lists to students that may benefit from some of these conferences.
New items have been posted in H-Announce.

20. Situating Adventist History [announcement]
by David Trim
Seventh-day Adventist history remains an understudied subdisicpline of church history. While critical studies, based on archival sources, have appeared in the last thirty years, few studies situate Adventist developments in social, cultural, political, and economic contexts, or explicitly situate their work in relationship to wider historiographical trends. It is impossible, however, fully to understand crucial episodes in Adventist history, or the development of Adventist thought, institutions, attitudes and culture, in isolation from wider historical currents.
21. Culture, Transport, Global Warming [announcement]
by Tatiana Prorokova
Culture, Transport, Global Warming
(Summary) Cultural media have celebrated the might of technology, the necessity of mechanization, and humanity’s inability to exist and progress without transport by air, water, and land. At the same time many vigorously powerful narratives draw audiences’ attention worldwide to the problem of climate change caused by industrialization that transportation immensely intensifies.
This collection aims to trace the enigmatic and tacit relationship between global warming and transport through the examination of various cultural artifacts (films, TV-series, novels, graphic novels, photography, etc.) to understand how through extensive depictions, they have created a cultural understanding of humanity’s addiction to and obsession with transport on the one hand, and its myopic attitude to the inevitability of the drastic ramifications of environmental changes and/or a pathological fear of global warming, on the other.

by Michael Kranert
Since the Brexit vote in the United Kingdom and the rise of Trump, Orbán and Le Pen, to name but a few, 'populism' has re-emerged as a common keyword in international news coverage. This term has become highly contested, often used to stigmatise political opponents. The current conflation of new right-wing politics with 'populism' backgrounds leftist mass movements such as Syriza in Greece and Podemos in Spain, despite a rich history of left wing populism.
