Wednesday, November 4, 2015 - 2:37pm
Universitas Press

In today's complex world religious discourse is especially crucial, considering that secularism is expanding around the globe. We seek contributions on the representation of the Virgin Mary in World Literature and Art. Comparative approaches are always welcome. Religious and cultural literacy is important for domestic and international politics, the practice of peace, harmony, justice, and social prosperity. Thus, this edited volume will help diminish religious illiteracy. Universitas Press has agreed to publish this edited volume. We have already 14 authors who agreed to participate in this collection. Contributions are welcome from scholars in various disciplines in the humanities.
