2011 PAMLA Religion and Literature Panel: Suffering and Religious Identity, Scripps College, CA, Proposal deadline 3/25

updated: 
Sunday, March 20, 2011 - 9:51pm
PAMLA (Pacific and Ancient Modern Language Association) 11/5-11/6, 2011

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?

Please submit proposals by 3/25 2011

The journal `Critical Survey' invites proposals for 4,000-6,000 word articles analysing some of the cultural and social dimensions of sport in Britain in the years 1800-1914. The nineteenth century saw the rise of professionalism in sport and the emergence of women as participants. Sport also engaged a wide range of novelists, poets, dramatists, painters and journalists – both as commentators and participants – from Byron's swimming to J.M. Barrie's cricket team.
