CFP: Migration, Diaspora and Identity
Midwest Modern Language Association Religion and Literature Section
Call for Papers Deadline:
Religion and Literature: "Migration, Diaspora, and Identity." In the self-identity of many religious groups, the historical experience of diaspora is an important theme. War, persecution and famine have driven groups across every continent in search of peace, freedom and homeland. How does the ancestral memory of diaspora color the self-identity and story of a contemporary people? How do the themes of chosenness, promise and homeland affect a people’s current story about themselves, in both individual and group tellings? Where do the descendants of diaspora belong?
Please send 250-word proposals to Bobbi Dykema Katsanis, Graduate Theological Union, firstname.lastname@example.org. M/MLA 2009 Convention is Nov. 12-15, St. Louis Union Station Marriott.
