Invite submissions for papers on

CREATIVE FANTASY IN RELIGIOUS IMAGINATION
for the Conference organized at the University of Sydney on
Friday-Saturday, September 26-27, 2008.

The 20th century has witnessed a renewed expression of religious imagination
through modern literary, artistic and philosophical forms.
The conference invites papers discussing the new religious creativity as
found in the works of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Philip K. Dick, Philip
Pullman and others beyond any religious or cultural boundaries.
Special emphasis is given to new forms of religious imagination through the
internet, cinematic transformations and new movements both in East and West.
The Conference would like to address issues of both traditional and
contemporary post-modern spirituality
as expressed through the mytho-poetics of fantasy and imagination.

Date for submission of abstracts: 29 June 2008
