Circus, Dance, and Sacred Literature

Monday, August 26, 2019 - 10:01am
Dr. Ora Horn Prouser
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 15, 2019

Humans have always moved or danced as a way of ritualizing their relationship to the Divine. These dances expressed an understanding of God(s), the relationship of human beings to the divine world, and were an expression of thanksgiving for the life cycle events that move history forward: birth, death, and all that is between. Some circus arts, find their earliest documentation as religious practices. This book begins the investigation of what it means for these practices to meet their holy origins once more, not as a form of expression but as a mode of study.

Western Region Conference on Christianity and Literature
deadline for submissions:

Why do we do what we do in the field of literary studies? Why does it matter? To whom? What redemptive or transformative work does literature do? When? Where? How? We invite reflection and conversation about the different kinds of work literature does to and through writers, readers, teachers, thinkers, and scholars. Our topic is intentionally broad as we seek to inspire, encourage, and celebrate the creation, interpretation, and appreciation of literature from any historical period and any genre. Our format is inclusive with panels for professors, graduate and undergraduate students, as well as scholars from multiple disciplines including English, Modern Languages, Theology, Education, Psychology, Science, and Humanities.

Religion and Jorge Luis Borges

Max Ubelaker Andrade / University of Massachusetts Lowell
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel within the March 5-8 2020 NeMLA conference in Boston is dedicated to a discussion of the ways that religion intertwines with fiction in the work of Jorge Luis Borges. 

Your presentation might consider one or several of the following questions:

How did Jorge Luis Borges draw from and transform different theological traditions in his fiction and poetry?

Are there interesting relationships between Borges's fictionalized theologies and literary theory? How do they correspond to his ideas about fiction? 

Do different religious traditions respond to separate aspects of the author’s literary project, or do they overlap and combine? What functions to they serve?
