The young professional and graduate conference “Holy Monsters, Sacred Grotesques” aims to create conversations on the impact of monstrosity and examples of the grotesque in discourse related to religion and the sacred.
We invite submissions for 20 minute papers that represent an intersection of the sacred (loosely construed) with a theme or object of monstrosity. Topics from a variety of disciplines are encouraged including (but not limited to): religious studies, philosophy, history, gender studies, art history, literature, political science, sociology, psychology, and anthropology.
Please send a 300-word abstract, along with your name, institution, and year of study (if a graduate student) by May 17, 2013 to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have questions or require additional information, please contact Michael Heyes at email@example.com.
The conference will be held at Rice University in Houston, TX on October 25-27th, 2013.
