Walker Percy: Science and Literature [UPDATE]

updated: 
Saturday, January 15, 2011 - 12:58pm
Christian Scholars Conference

Twentieth-century writer Walker Percy studied to be a physician and became a novelist. Much of his fiction aims to confront "scientism," a belief that only science provides knowledge about the universe. He worries that people are unable to recognize the limits of scientific knowledge, and thus, they depend on it even to define the self. This session requests papers that explore Percy's dialogue with science, either in his novels or in his published essays.
Please submit and abstract of 250-500 words in a Word.doc attachment via email to Dr. Jessica Hooten at jhooten@umhb.edu by January 15, 2011--extended to February 1. Notice of acceptance of your paper will be provided by February 15, 2011.
