Marilynne Robinson has written widely-acclaimed novels and essays that explore the relationship between religion and culture. Marilynne Robinson Society at the 2019 American Literature Association (ALA) Conference is soliticing proposals that examine how recent developments in post-secular studies can illuminate Robinson’s religious vision. Jurgen Habermas, Talal Asad, Charles Taylor, Jared Hickman, Tracy Fessensden, among other scholars, have led us to reconsider the secularization thesis and the ways in which it has shaped narratives of modernity. We ask how Robinson’s investigation of faith is especially relevant to the growing field of postsecular studies.

Western civilization is deeply rooted in Judeo-Christian tradition and ideology, which goes a long way in explaining why the Bible is a shadow text on nearly every college literature syllabus. The heritage of the so-called “the book of books” spans the full historical spectrum of English writing, from its earliest specimens up to its most recent. For centuries, the bible offered up a common vocabulary and shared lens through which American college professors and their students could think and talk about literary history and culture.
