New project on Religion & Literature (“R&L”) by Cooper Harriss

February 8, 2021

This is to inform you that Cooper Harriss, Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Indiana University and Founding Co-Editor (with Sarah Imhoff) of the journal American Religion, received an IU Presidential Arts & Humanities Award for the project “R&L”, which he describes as follows:

“Scholars working across religious and literary studies have much to offer one another, yet they (and their work) confront a disciplinary divide. […] ‘R&L’ is a series of workshops that bring together scholars working at the nexus of religion and literature in a wide range of literary and religious traditions in a variety of historical and geographical contexts: from contemporary poetics of the Black Sacred to those underlying Chinese Confucianism, from colonial Latin America to medieval Europe and Japan, from poetry, plays, and novels to picture books.”

A future workshop will be held this year with further plans still in process. To find out more about the project, click here!
