2013 Conference Theme

Religion, Literature, and the Arts 2013
Sacrifice and the Terror of the Good
Sept 26-28, 2013

The 2013 Religion, Literature and the Arts conference at the University of Iowa will focus on the relationship of sacrifice to the terror of the Good. To this end, we will incorporates papers highlighting individual components of this theme, defining any of the key terms, and/or framing ways of conceptualizing how these terms relate. Rather than immediately accepting the appeal of the Good and our desire for finding ourselves in line with it, the conference will pause to reflect on the terrifying and terrible aspect of the Good and particularly on how it influences our desire to sacrifice what is dear—for good and for ill.

The complete CFP is available now at http://www.uiowa.edu/~rels-rla/2013/Call_for_Papers.html
Proposals are now being accepted. The call closes May 20, 2013. For more information or to submit a proposal, please email us at religion-rla@uiowa.edu.
