Anyone who knows me is well aware that I truly enjoy (much to the confusion and lament of my close friends and family) those two great tastes that taste great together: the Bible and critical theory! Thus, it is with great pleasure that I pass on the news that The Bible and Critical Theory Seminar has offered a call for papers for BCTS XIV:
Roland Boer, at Stalin's Moustache, writes
Papers typically deal with all areas of biblical studies and
critical theory, which we define broadly to cover areas such as
feminism, postcolonialism, psychoanalysis, Marxism, narratology, empire
studies, new historicism, eco-criticism, queer theory,
poststructuralism and so on.
When: Friday-Saturday, 10-11 July 2009 (please note the slight change in date from earlier announcements – the pub doesn’t open on Sundays).
Where: a great old pub called The Grand Hotel, corner of Church and Bolton Streets, Newcastle. You can check it out at http://www.thegrandhotelnewcastle.com.au/. It’s 5 minutes from the beach, 10 minutes from Newcastle Railway station and in the old part of town. We’ll do our usual thing of listen to papers, discuss (more room for that this year), slip away for a drink, etc.
I do miss Australia. And I'll miss this gathering, too.
Check out Roland's blog for the meeting's complete details
You can send paper proposals to him at roland.t.boer(at)gmail.com.
