Society for Comparative Research on Iconic and Performative Texts


Program Unit Type: Affiliate
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: In 2020, SCRIPT invites proposals for one panel on "digital sacred texts." With the digital turn, texts are encountered in new material forms that impact the ways they are read, recited, and interacted with. Questions we hope to think about include: What is gained or lost when a text is used in digital formats, as compared to print culture? How is personal, ritual, or scholarly engagement with sacred texts impacted by the digital turn? Proposals on any aspect of digital sacred texts are welcome. A second panel is open for papers that examine any aspect of iconic and performative texts in terms of their display as cultural artifacts, their ritual use in religious and political ceremonies, their performance by recitation and theater, their depiction in art, and/or display in museums.
