This conference, which will take place at Dordt College November 1–3, 2012, will explore the Christian tendency to “evade” popular culture. Speakers and presenters will seek answers to questions like: Is it possible to be “in the world but not of the world”? How can the Christian community sustain the impulse of reformation with regard to the social and cultural aspects of human life?
The 2012 Conference on the Christian Evasion of Popular Culture at Dordt College invites the submission of papers that engage the intersection of Christian faith and popular culture. All people, including graduate students, scholars, clergy, and lay people, are invited to submit papers of a theoretical or practical nature, focusing on—but not limited to—the following topic areas:
Practical and Pastoral Theology
Film, Television, and Social Media
Sports and Sports Media
Art and Music
Fiction and Poetry
Historical, Theological, and Philosophical Engagements of Popular Culture
A 250-word abstract of the paper should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 1, 2012. Those accepted will be notified by mid-June.
