Religion and Early Literature (MLA 2016 in Austin, TX, 7-10 January)

updated: 
Monday, February 9, 2015 - 11:48am
MLA Forum on Religion and Literature

Given the difficulty of distinguishing between literary and religious texts in early periods, how do literary scholars differ in their approaches to early texts from scholars of religious studies? We invite papers on religious literature from the sixth to the seventeenth centuries, from a range of literary disciplines and languages (Old English, Scandinavian, Hebrew, Spanish, Arabic, etc.), exploring questions of approach and practice. Panel sponsored by MLA Forum on Religion and Literature. Abstract/CV by 15 March 2015 to Adrienne Williams Boyarin, aboyarin@uvic.ca

Alien religions, post-secular numinous experience, evolutionary religious developments, neo-religious epiphanies--science fiction rarely leaves religion behind as it leaps to the stars.

Silence!
McGill Art History and Communication Studies Graduate Student Conference
CFP Deadline: March 1st, 2015.
Conference Date: April 24, 2015.
McGill University, Montréal

Silence itself—the things one declines to say, or is forbidden to name, the discretion that is required between different speakers—is less the absolute limit of discourse, the other side from which it is separated by a strict boundary, than an element that functions alongside the things said, with them and in relation to them within over-all strategies. [...]There is not one but many silences, and they are an integral part of the strategies that underlie and permeate discourses. (Michel Foucault, The History of Sexuality Vol. 1: An Introduction )
