CFP: Toni Morrison and the Bible (9/1/03; collection)

Toni Morrison and the Bible:

Proposals are requested for a contracted collection of essays on Toni
Morrison and the Bible. Papers may deal with any of Morrison's texts
and approach her use of the Bible from the standpoints of Judaism or
Christianity as well as from other religions/practices that may
intersect with or challenge what might be considered the dominant
theological discourse. I am particularly looking for a broad range in
topics, both in the approach taken and inthe texts the essays treat.
Ideally, I would like the collection to include some solidly theoretical
essays as well as some more traditional pieces of literary criticism.
