SOUTHEAST CONFERENCE ON CHRISTIANITY AND LITERATURE (SCCL)
Christian Literature and Sustainability
This panel welcomes papers having to do with any issue relating to the interrelationships between the
environment, ecology, the economy, or any subject pertaining to these topics from a religious perspective. In particular, papers examining Christian attitudes or portrayals of the earth and of humanity’s place in nature would be of interest, especially those which handle the impact of doctrinal differences on these themes. Is there a proper “Christian” view of sustainability? In what ways has Christian literature been supportive or resistant to environmental concerns? By June 10, 2014, please submit a 250-word abstract, a
brief bio, and A/V requirements to Lawton Brewer, Georgia Northwestern Technical College, at
lbrewer@gntc.edu.
