Religious Transnationalism in Ethnic U.S. Literatures (MELUS, April 19-22, 2012)
Given the connection between many religions to specific geographical locations outside of the United States (for example: Jerusalem, Rome, Mecca, the Ganges, Tepeyac, etc.), religious practice can be seen as a common and powerful means of transnational experience in the U.S.
Submissions are being accepted for a panel that discusses depictions of or references to such transnational aspects of religious practice and/or belief (from any tradition) within ethnic U.S. texts.
Send a 1-page abstract by Sunday, 16 October to Dr. J. Stephen Pearson (U of Tennessee, Knoxville) at email@example.com . Panelists will be notified by the 23rd of October.
