We are currently seeking proposals for the Literature and Religion panel at the 2014 Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association Conference in Riverside, California. The conference will take place October 31-November 2, 2014.

How do contemporary writers negotiate faith or unbelief? What are the varieties of secularism articulated in their work? How do they explore faith within a post-secular context? What are the tensions associated with inhabiting a post-secular age?

"The Hermeneutics of Hell: Devilish Visions and Visions of the Devil in World Literature"

November 7-8, 2014

Gordon College, Wenham, MA

"There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. They themselves are equally pleased by both errors, and hail a materialist or magician with the same delight." C. S. Lewis. The Screwtape Letters

CFP: AJS Panel "Love in the New World: Jewish American Women's Immigrant Narratives"

"He had vanished like a dream, and yet he was not a dream. He was the only thing real in the unreal emptiness of her unlived life." –Anzia Yezierska, "Wings"

From Anzia Yezierska to Lara Vapnyar, Jewish American women's immigrant narratives have frequently addressed the quest – sometimes successful, more often detrimental – for love in the New World. In many of these works, the desired other stands in for an idea rather than a person, obscuring the material and emotional realities of the parties involved. The love plot hence often encapsulates the immigrant's hunger to bridge cultures, frequently evoking the yearning to find a familiar sense of self, one that feels like home.
