Abrahamic sacred texts continue to inspire a diversity of scholarship that seeks to transform the ancient into the contemporary, the remote into the immediate, and the distant into the visceral experience. This seminar of three panels takes that process into the examination of troubling topics, often overlooked, yet found in the Tanakh, New Testament, and Qur’an. Building from foundational texts, other sacred works such as Talmud, Apocrypha, Patristics, and Hadith as well as philosophy, textual satire, and the arts may be brought into play.This is for the American Comparative Literature Association's annual meeting in March of 2019. The call-for-papers period is August 30-September 20, 2018. Follow the link for further particulars.
