Fictional Religions (ACLA 2015)

Friday, August 21, 2015 - 9:31am
American Comparative Literature Association

Fantasy, science fiction, horror, and even more mimetic fiction in various media such as texts and graphic novels have long permitted the sort of free experimentation often celebrated (or bemoaned) in the American religious environment, though constrained by genre conventions, social contexts, market forces, and other factors. Thus, especially the "estranged" genres of fiction (pace Suvin) permit not only the utopian depiction of traditional religions as they ought to be and the dystopian depiction of religions as they ought not to be, but also the representation of novel religious forms—a space in which new fictional religions may be invented.
