Feminist Theologies in American Literature (*DEADLINE APPROACHING*)
The American Religion and Literature Society seeks proposals for presentations on literary expressions of feminist theologies broadly construed. We welcome presentations on any period, genre, or form of American literature, and those regarding any religious orientation. We particularly encourage papers on works of literature
- that examine the power, enfranchisement, religious ideas, and practices of women

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.
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?

Written as a collaboration between Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, Good Omens(1990) had an active and long-term fanbase before the debut of the Amazon Prime miniseries. Its adaptation, brought to fruition by Gaiman as a promise to Pratchett before Pratchett’s 2015 death, however, has not only brought new fans into the fold, but increased the visibility of the original text.

“The familiar observation that the Bible is the best-selling book of all time obscures a more startling fact: the Bible is the best-selling book of the year, every year. Calculating how many Bibles are sold in the United States is a virtually impossible task” says “The Good Book Business” article published in The New Yorker in 2006, underlines the billion dollar industry of Bible-publishing in the U.S.
