Imago Dei in Contemporary World Literature (15 May; SAMLA Nov. 5-7, 2010)

full name / name of organization: 
Steve Pearson/U of Tennessee

Special Session on Religion & World Literature: Imago Dei: humanity contains the image of God. What does this idea look like in late 20th-century world literature (1970-2010)? What does it look like either inside or outside the Judeo-Christian tradition? How have globalization, technologization, secularization, post-secularization and other historical developments created new "images of God"? In what ways are modern "images of God" syncretic and in what ways are they traditional?
