2011 PAMLA Religion and Literature Panel: Suffering and Religious Identity, Scripps College, Claremont, CA, 11/5-11/6 , 2011

PAMLA

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?

History and Hermeneutics in Biblical Translation - 28 May 2011

Thursday, February 24, 2011 - 6:00pm
Birkbeck College, University of London

2011 marks the fourth centenary of the publication of the King James Bible, now widely recognised as the landmark work in the history of English scriptural translation, even if contemporaries were slow to embrace the work. It is an appropriate time, then, for a retrospective glance at the Bible's place in the English language, from its earliest mediaeval incarnations, through the manifold early modern versions to the present-day, when the Bible is still being adapted to the idioms of modern speech, as in Rob Lacey's Street Bible (2002). More than any other work, the Bible has participated bilaterally in the development and enrichment of the language, and of the cultures which that language has underpinned.

Exploring the Global Caribbean through Literary and Theoretical Texts Conference, 5-7 July 2012, Kingsville, Texas

updated: 
Wednesday, February 23, 2011 - 10:32am
Texas A&M University-Kingsville

Keynote Speaker:
Gustavo Pérez-Firmat, Columbia University

Call for papers:
Because the Caribbean represents the confluence of peoples and cultures—from Europe, Africa, and the Americas—first through trade routes and colonization and then through the dispersion of its literature and culture in a contemporary diaspora back out to the larger world, it provides a paradigm for studying the processes and effects of globalization. A culturally and linguistically rich region of the world that includes English, French, Spanish, Dutch and native creoles, the Caribbean also provides a fascinating literature that is complicated by its history and location.
