RMMLA Literature & Religion
CALL FOR PAPERS 2019
LITERATURE & RELIGION SESSION
Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association
Conference Dates: October 10-12, 2019
El Paso, TX
The RMMLA welcomes abstracts from graduate students, faculty members, and independent scholars across the wide range of Literature & Religion for the 2019 meeting of the Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association, with particular interest in proposals that illuminate lesser-known authors/texts, explore the familiar/canonical in new ways, and/or incorporate diverse perspectives. This panel welcomes intellectually rigorous proposals working with any religious, spiritual, or philosophical perspective as applied to literary texts of any genre. This panel strives to generate discussion, both during and after the session, and bringing together an eclectic panel of scholars and papers is a wonderful way to make this goal happen. For example, this panel has featured presenters exploring: ecological faith in Richard Jeffries' After London, phenomenological spirituality in Wordsworth's "The Prelude," and feminism and masculinity in religious translations. So, the sky's the limit, to use a cliche, but compelling research, thoughtful insights, and passion for the subject are always key elements of a successful proposal.
Please email abstracts (300-ish words) to Lucien Darjeun Meadows (LucienMeadows@gmail.com) by May 1, 2019. All abstracts are acknowledged. You do not have to be a member of RMMLA to propose a paper, but you should become a member by June 1st to be listed in the program. For more information, please visit: http://www.rmmla.org/
