Conference Dates: March 25-27, 2010

California Baptist University, Riverside, CA

The Western Regional Conference on Christianity and Literature 2010 is seeking informed papers and creative presentations which can address the role of "family" in literature. We also hope to find meaningful ways to engage contemporary culture and explore how participants can come to understand how the concept of family fits within modern and post-modern literary theories and practice. While the Committee will consider proposals on all subjects, we especially encourage those related to the general theme of the conference. Papers in progress, interdisciplinary panels, and panels composed of or including graduate students are welcomed. A limited number of subsidies will be available for graduate students.

The deadline for all submissions is January 10, 2010.

Please note: The application deadline for graduate student travel grants has been extended to January 31, 2010.
