February 21-22, 2014

The annual Religions in Conversation Conference is accepting paper proposals (limited to 200 words) on the general topic of the intersection of art and religion.  Seeking to address issues of artistic expression within religious settings as well as the usage of art by religion and the usage of religion by art, the conference is aimed at examining the mutual influence and engagement of religious traditions and artistic expression through transdisciplinary scholarly engagement within the fields. 

The conference invites papers in specific topics such as: icons, iconoclasm, religious artistic expressions, religious influences on specific subdivisions of art, artistic expressions of religious ideas (including painting, sculpture, drama, engravings, poetry, film, etc.), religion as art, art as religion, art in religion, iconoclasm, taboos in religious art, religious artists, curatorial decisions regarding religiously themed art, and religious authority's embrace or denouncement of artistic expression.

Send abstracts of no more than 200 words to conference chair Seth Rushton at religion.events@cgu.edu. The subject line should read "Proposal: 2014 Religions in Conversation Conference." Submission Deadline is November 1st, 2013 and presenters will be notified of their acceptance by the end of the month.

 

 Please contact the conference chair, Seth Rushton, at religion.events@cgu.edu with any questions.
