CFP: [Collections] "Jesus" in Literature

updated:

Andrew Ng

Essays are sought for a collection which looks at the way in
which “Jesus” as a signifier is deployed in twentieth-century literature.
Essays may look at individual narratives, or take a comparative approach
in the way “Jesus” is signified in works by different writers. A variety
of theoretical responses to reading such narratives is encouraged, as one
of the principle aims of this collection is to demonstrate the way in
which particular theoretical/philosophical perspectives illuminate the
way in which “Jesus” is constructed and mobilized for textual, ethical,
ideological, religious, etc. purposes.

Possible topics (non-exhaustive) could include:
