contact email: 

In December 2012 Paul Elie wrote a New York Times article entitled, "Has Fiction Lost Its Faith?" which sparked conversation among many literati about the status of faith and literature. This conference aims to continue this discussion. Papers will be considered from a variety of disciplines and fields but should pursue questions regarding the intersection of faith and literature. Of particular interest will be those papers considering contemporary writers and the current state of faith in the arts.

Please submit a 500 word abstract on a Word.doc via email attachment to Jessica Hooten Wilson at jwilson@jbu.edu by March 15. Decisions will be made by May 1.

The conference will take place on John Brown University campus in Siloam Springs, AR on Nov 14-15. For more information see our website at http://www.jbu.edu/hss/conference/.
