Call for Papers & Creative Work
9th International Congress
“Animals in Fact, Fable, and Scripture: An Ecumenical Examination.”
Congress Dates: 13-19 June 2002, Maltese Islands
“Animals in Fact, Fable, and Scripture: An Ecumenical Examination” is an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural look at how human beings from all walks of life look at, think of, treat/mistreat, write about, teach, learn from, and cohabitate with animals. This includes—but not limited to—literary and artistic presentations; theoretical and hermeneutical
approaches; zoological and medical perspectives; ethical, religious, and philosophical exegeses; public, national, and international policy making; commercial and financial considerations; and historical and fictional narratives.
Papers and original fables (in English) are welcome from literateurs, creative writers, nature writers, and literary scholars; historians; artists; philosophers; theologians; scientists; economists; ethicists; animal lovers; journalists who cover animal rights in the media (old journalism adage: “‘Dog bites man’ is not a story, but ‘man bites dog’ is.”); and champions of animal rights.
N.B. All papers and original fables delivered at the Congress will be considered for publication in Bestia, the Society’s refereed Yearbook.
