Why religion got it all wrong? Conceptualizing new methods of reading.

 

Literary scholars need to throw open the doors of what texts constitute the study of literari-ness and the methods of doing so; such an act will allow the discipline to examine and interrogate socio-discursive practices which affect the lives of women all over the world.  Religious texts codify culture and gender norms and it is imperative that literary scholars engage with these texts that perpetuate and maintain oppressive hegemonic institutions.

In Art As Experience, John Dewey writes: “When an art product once attains classic status, it somehow becomes isolated from the human conditions under which it was brought into being and from the human consequences it engenders in actual life-experience.” Dewey also notes that the growth of capitalism “has been a powerful influence in the development of the museum as the proper home for works of art, and in the promotion of the idea that they are apart from the common life."

This panel seeks informed readings of British sermons written between 1500 and 1900, reflecting on the ways that the sermon fits in the literature classroom and for literature readers today.What new avenues of research can be pursued in studying the sermon in Great Britain's literature from 1500-1900? How do the well-known sermon writers (e.g., Donne, Andrewes, Wesley) and lesser-known (Barrow, Whitefield, Edwards) form, transform, and deform the genre? And how do we respond to the form as instructors of British literature in the post-Christian, twenty-first century? This panel seeks informed readings of sermons and ability to discuss them in their historical context as well as pedagogically for college/university classrooms today.
