The Literature and Religion panel at 2011 PAMLA Conference (November 5-6, 2011; Scripps College, Claremont, CA) seeks papers that address how questions of faith have shaped literary works and cultural meanings. In particular, it welcomes papers exploring the relationship between suffering and religious identity. Some of the questions we will consider are: how do writers represent the connection between suffering and faith? Can certain experiences of epiphany—i.e. moments of empathic identification with the suffering other—be categorized as inherently transcendent? Do religious and non-religious writers come to terms with human suffering in different ways?

In the beginning was murder. Then came drama: the hair-tearing (or eye-gouging) discovery of one's own overweening hubris, the inconsolable grieving over the loss of the most basic sense of humanity, and, simply, more killing. Indeed, murderers are significant figures in what Erich Auerbach would call "scenes of drama from European literature": Cain, Oedipus, Medea, the parricides in Dante's inferno, and Shakespeare's army of villains. Acts of killing in these literary texts not only contribute to the excitement of the drama, but also make imperative a rethinking of social order, justice, morality, state power, and human-God relations.
