Literature and Religion, PAMLA 11/ 5-11/6, 2011, proposal deadline, 3/15 2011

Tuesday, January 25, 2011 - 5:07pm
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association, Scripps College, Claremont, CA 11/5-11/6, 2011

The Literature and Religion panel at 2011 PAMLA Conference 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 3/15 2011

Literatures of Modernity Symposium 2011

updated: 
Tuesday, January 25, 2011 - 12:45am
Second Annual Literatures of Modernity Symposium, Ryerson University

"It is in its transitoriness that modernity shows itself to be ultimately and most intimately akin to antiquity," Walter Benjamin writes in _The Arcades Project_. For Adorno, modernity was a quality and not a chronology. How is modernity related to temporality? How is modernity related to technology, identity, the city? What are some of the popular icons of modernity? This symposium invites proposals on any aspect of modernity as expressed in literature or culture. In addition to academic proposals, the committee welcomes proposals for creative projects including photography, painting, video, film, or performance.
