deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 30, 2018

This panel seeks to examine the writings of Marilynne Robinson, one of the most important contemporary American writers.  Robinson has written widely-acclaimed novels and essays that explore the relationship between religion and contemporary culture.  This panel considers the ways in which Robinson’s religious vision informs her writing.  How has Robinson contributed to discussions of faith in our contemporary moment, both through her fiction and essays?  How is her investigation of this topic especially relevant to the growing field of post-secular studies?  How is her Pulitzer novel, Gilead, a meditation on race and religion in American culture?
