“The Ethics of Literature”

In recent years, literary scholarship has been increasingly concerned with ethics, both as a theme in literature and as an approach to it. Where and how do ethical concerns interrelate with literature, literary scholarship, and the academy?
Papers suitable for a twenty-minute presentation [approx. 2,000-2,500 words] are invited on the following or related topics:
• the ethics of literary pedagogy
• the ethical nature and needs of the academy
• literature and socio-political ethics
• religious ethics in literature
We also welcome papers on other topics regarding the intersection of Christianity and literature.

Send 250 to 500 word abstract AND a complete manuscript by Dec. 15, 2009 to mdtowles@liberty.edu. (MSWord or PDF electronic submissions only)
