- 18 April 2016, CFP for Panel on Material Religion.
- Part of Conference of the International Society for Religion, Literature and Culture. 9-11 September 2016, University of Glasgow.
- Panel Convenor: S. Brent Plate, firstname.lastname@example.org
Objects and media, bodies and senses, books and symbols, spaces and times, all operate together to shape religious worlds. Materiality stands at the heart of religious life. We are interested in papers or panels that explore some of these dimensions. In keeping with the conference theme, we are especially interested in thinking about the transformation of objects and bodies as they cross cultural and political borders, or occupy different sites. This includes transitions from ritual settings to museums, and libraries to sanctuaries. We are also interested in receiving proposals on the ‘material texts’, and will be arranging a session in conjunction with the University of Glasgow Library Special Collections.
