      *Call for Papers
      2009 SECSOR Regional Meeting
      March 13-15, 2009 Chapel Hill, North Carolina*

      The following section invite members who wish to present a paper or
      coordinate a session to submit proposals (1-2 pages) or completed
      manuscripts to the email address below. Please use the proposal
      submission form available on the SECSOR web site (www.secsor.appstate.edu).

      This section deals with cultural issues, as well as science and religion:

      /(AAR/SBL) Bible and Modern Culture/

      Themes: Proposals are invited which relate to the following themes:

      (1) *A joint session with the Islam section on “Scripture, Religion and
      Science”*; papers concerning Islamic views on science and involvement
      with science are particularly welcome. (2) A joint section with
      Religion, Culture and the Arts entitled “”Prayer is the Study of
      Art/Praise is the Practice of Art: The Bible in Modern Literature and
      the Arts”. (3) Open call. This session invites papers around the
      intersection of Biblical Hermeneutics, Science, and Culture. Submit
      copies of proposals (limit of two pages) to co-chairs Prof. Brian
      Mooney, Johnson & Wales University–Charlotte (*brian.mooney@...*)
      and Dr. Finbar Benjamin, Oakwood University (*fbenjamin@...*).

      So far this section has accepted some interesting presentations, such as
      a film that has been made documenting the history of prayer in films –
      something of interest to many from a literary, film, sociological, or
      cultural studies perspective. So the field is wide open, either for
      topic related to specific sessions or the open call.

      We are taking submissions until about Oct 8 – earlier is better. All
      that is required is a less than two-page proposal, written on the
      proposal form available on the SECSOR website (see above). You have
      until early next year to write the actual paper.

      If you look at the other calls for papers on the webpage cited above,
      you’ll see what else is going on. Lots of opportunities!
