Bible and Popular Culture

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Bible and Popular Culture Unit will host two sessions in 2018. The first session looks backwards and forwards, as we celebrate the retirement of Drs. Linda Schearing and Valarie Ziegler, co-founders of this Unit. The session will consist of a conversation with Drs. Schearing and Ziegler in which we will cogitate and ruminate on how the study of the Bible and Popular Culture has evolved since the Unit began, and we will conclude with our Business Meeting to discuss future sessions. Our second session is an open session, and we invite proposals for papers focusing on any aspect of the reciprocal relationship between the Bible and popular culture.
