Use, Influence, and Impact of the Bible


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: This year we are particularly interested in the performance of the Bible in different contexts. Proposals will be especially welcome on aspects of the Bible’s performance on stage, in theatre, opera and dance. We are planning a joint session with the Bible and Film Unit, for which we invite papers that consider theoretical approaches to biblical reception in film, constructively compare different cinematic receptions of particular texts, or engage with films outside of the Hollywood mainstream. We will also have at least one open session: proposals are welcome on any aspect of the Bible's reception history. For the open sessions our preference is for papers that do not focus on the narrower history of scholarship, but explore wider aspects of the Bible's impact on religions, society and culture, art, literature and music.
