CFP: The Da Vinci Code in the Academy (12/15/05; collection)

debunk the underlying claims regarding the interpretations of art and
history, membership in secret societies, as well as feminism and religion.
How do these popularized theories and beliefs enter into academic
discussions, either scholarly or within the classroom?
