Bible and Film


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: 1) This unit invites papers for two open sessions dealing with the critical analysis of films in dialogue with biblical texts. Presentations reflecting interactions with theory and/or dealing with non-Hollywood film are particularly desired, but proposals on popular Hollywood film will be entertained. 2) This unit invites papers for a third session utilizing affect/body theory (e.g. Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Vivian Sobchack, Laura Marks)in the critical analysis of film in dialogue with biblical texts. Papers might use affect theory to analyze film/bible, for example, in terms of fear, pain, suffering, and morality. Presenters are given 35 minutes to accommodate the use of film clips, which the unit encourages, in their presentations.
