Whereas religious study often dwells with the theological question of how the sacred has been revealed to humanity, sociologists of religion Emile Durkheim and Max Weber preferred to ask how the sacred is made and remade within a society. For them, human activity assumes a power sometimes attributed to supernatural forces: the power to produce the sacred.

Comparative Drama Conference
April 5-7, 2018
In light of the Broadway revival of M. Butterfly (opening in October 2017) we are particularly interested in receiving abstracts that address this production (some possible topics: Taymor’s vision of the play, Hwang’s changes to the play, the timeliness of M. Butterfly, the casting of Clive Owen as Gallimard, or a comparison with the original production). Recognizing that not everyone will get a chance to see the play before abstracts are due, we also seek abstracts on the play in general.
