Panel: "For Christ's Sake! – Transformations of Christ in Contemporary Literatures"
Seminar Organizers: Brian L. Johnson, Austin Peay State University and Gregor Thuswaldner, Gordon College
This special session at PAMLA 2010 will investigate the soft boundary between Literature and Philosophy by probing how the narrative conventions of the two forms use language to construct significance(s). In what ways do the vocabulary, contexts, connotations, and purposes of these forms converge and/or diverge? How can we stimulate a productive conversation between them?
All manner of approaches and topics are welcome. Presenters may perform close readings of philosophical or literary texts or may engage exclusively with philosophy or literary theory.
