Bible and the Moving Image


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: A first session will be devoted to the bible and children in film, animation, television, etc. We are especially interested in papers that discuss how biblical stories and characters are presented to a youthful audience, both in terms of their content and form, as well as the underlying presuppositions about children and their interests and how that affects the selection of texts, topics and characters from the bible. The second session is an open session which invites the proposal of papers on any topic related to the use, influence, and development of biblical texts, motifs, and themes in the various media of the moving image, including cinema throughout its history, television, and the interactive narratives of gaming media. Papers which break new ground in any of these areas (and especially the latter) are particularly welcome.
