2011 PAMLA Religion and Literature Panel: Suffering and Religious Identity, Scripps College, CA, Proposal deadline 3/25

Sunday, March 13, 2011 - 5:52pm
PAMLA (Pacific and Ancient Modern Language Association, 11/5-11/6, 2011

The Literature and Religion panel at 2011 PAMLA Conference (November 5-6, 2011; Scripps College, Claremont, CA) seeks papers that address how questions of faith have shaped literary works and cultural meanings. In particular, it welcomes papers exploring the relationship between suffering and religious identity. Some of the questions we will consider are: how do writers represent the connection between suffering and faith? Can certain experiences of epiphany—i.e. moments of empathic identification with the suffering other—be categorized as inherently transcendent? Do religious and non-religious writers come to terms with human suffering in different ways?
