The Arts, Literature, and Religion section invites proposals for papers or panels on any topic concerning the intersection of the arts, literature, and religion. Of particular interest this year are papers or presentations that cast such intersections as instances of Kairos, opportune or appointed moments where truth is delivered or realized. Papers that consider such moments in the arts or literature or that describe the ways in which the classroom or a conference can create such moments are especially welcome. So, too, are presentations or performances that discuss moments of Kairos in one's own art (painting, photography, music, creative writing, etc). Proposals should not exceed 500 words and should include a title, a brief description, and an indication of the main arguments the presentation will make. A succinct self-introduction would also be helpful. Send proposals to:
