The Marilynne Robinson Society and the American Religion and Literature Society (ARLS) will hold a joint panel at the annual American Literature Association Conference (May 25-28, 2022; Boston, MA).  We are seeking papers that examine the author’s relationship to American evangelicalism.  Robinson’s spiritual vision has been shaped by the writings of Jonathan Edwards, who is considered to be the founding father of American evangelicalism.  How does Robinson’s body of work lead us to think critically about the evangelical tradition in the United States?  How do her essays and novels, particularly Gilead, provide a counter-narrative to the discourses found in modern and contemporary American evangelicalism?  In what ways can they respond to the inc

Monday, October 17, 2022 - 10:37pm

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 30, 2022

What do the words “Arab” and “Arabic” mean today? What have they meant historically? What continuities and ruptures do they signify in contemporary discourses of the Middle East? In a world in which conflict, migration, transnational movements, the blurring of borders, and (self-)translation have become everyday realities for millions of Arabs, these questions have attained new urgency. In this seminar, we explore the relationship between the Arabic language and Arab identity and community in the transnational contexts that have long defined both.
