Art, Ekphrasis and Religion in Contemporary Jewish American Literature
40th Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

This panel seeks papers examining the relationship between art and religion in contemporary Jewish American fiction.

Please submit abstracts of no more than 250 words to Amanda R. Toronto at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please email proposals of no more than 250 words by September 30, 2008 to Amanda R. Toronto, email@example.com.
