- *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!
