Western Regional Conference on Christianity & Literature
Crossing Borders/Exploring Boundaries
Committed to educating students for employment and service in the United States and abroad, Point Loma Nazarene University is also committed to forming Christian disciples. Teaching in the humanities in this context presents both great challenges and amazing opportunities. Literature is sometimes seen as an unneeded luxury for students preparing for employment and a challenge (or even a detriment) to Christian formation. At the same time, literature allows students and faculty to cross boundaries and borders, offering them the opportunity to read the stories of those whom they are called to love whose life experiences may be very different them their own.
In the spirit of Christian communion and intellectual dialogue, we invite papers, panels, creative presentations, and roundtable discussions that explore this broad theme: the crossing of boundaries and borders. We welcome proposals from a variety of perspectives including, but not limited to literature, creative writing, faith communities, film, visual arts, philosophy, popular culture, and pedagogy and practice.
Catherine Kapikian is the founder and director emerita of The Henry Luce III Center for the Arts and Religion at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC. The author of Art in the Service of the Sacred, Professor Kapikian will address the interrelationship between theology and the arts. A skilled visual artist, Kapikian will also explore the relationship between literature and the visual arts. More information about her work can be found at www.catherinekapikian.com.
Diane Glancy is a noted playwright, poet, essayist, and fiction writer. Of Cherokee, German, and English descent, Glancy is noted for her work exploring the boundaries between racial and ethnic identities as well as the boundaries between Christian faith and Native American beliefs. A long-time faculty member at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, Glancy has also been a visiting professor at Kenyon College and Azusa Pacific University. She has been invited to both give a public reading and offer theological reflections on her work.
