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?

Landscape Studies is multidisciplinary, with a diverse array of approaches that give the field its strength.

At this conference, all scholars interested in the widely varied interpretations and analyses of landscape are invited to join in the exchange of ideas and consideration of novel intellectual perspectives, to join in the effort of building a more integrative framework for the field.

We are open to many interpretations of Landscape, Space, and Place. Some previous papers and sessions have dealt with the following approaches:

Similar to narratives of the traditional, purely verbal format, topics of comics and graphic novels can range from purely fictional stories to accounts that make extensive truth claims. Graphic memoirs are probably the most discussed genre on the non-fictional–or at least not exclusively fictional–end of this spectrum. In fact, when we think of Spiegelman’s Maus which is often hailed as one of the first graphic novels, non-fictionality or semi-fictionality is central to this increasingly popular format.
