This session will examine how the notion of seeing and not seeing common in many classical religious texts was interpreted by ancient commentators to elaborate certain epistemological theories. We will consider why ancient interpreters from various religious traditions frequently applied the sense of sight analogously to the act of understanding. 

This session is also interested in papers that specifically focus on this year's theme of sight, visuality, and ways of seeing.

UPDATE: Animals in Literature and Film

MMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 14, 2017

This year’s MMLA Animals in Literature and Film panel invites papers engaging in tensions of “human” and “animal” found within a variety of ancient textualities related to the broad field of animal studies. In ancient Greek and Roman society, animals serve important roles, often as a medium in religion, as symbolic function in Greco-Roman mythology, and as poetic symbol in ancient oral tradition and later written literature. Often, animals are given titular roles, and they carry strong symbolic function in the narrative, whether the narrative is oral, written, or artistic.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 31, 2017

The conference will be dedicated to current issues of literature, translation and teaching and learning of different languages.

Academics and university lecturers are cordially invited to present their research regarding current issues of literature, translation and teaching and learning of different languages and dialects in English, Arabic or Persian. Such an approach suggests that a study is no longer limited within a certain field; knowledge from different fields cultivates diversity in a study. Recognizing this trend, the conference organizing committee aims to provide a platform for researchers and scholars from various fields to exchange ideas.
