Fictional Testimonies, Comparative Confessions, and Literary Ethics, Sponsored Seminar of the ICLA Research Committee on Religion, Ethics, and Literature 

Organizer: Kitty Millet

In a continued discussion on Redemption and Literature at our previous seminars at ACLA and ICLA conferences, this panel invites comparative papers on the presence and absence of confession in testimonial, poetic, or prose texts. We especially hope for papers that examine aesthetic experience or judgment in relation to these kinds of texts, that analyze the seminar's themes either across a global field or within local, regional contexts. While we expect papers to be comparative, the concepts of confession and testimony are broadly conceived. Panelists do not have to be members of the research committee in order to participate. Remember, you must submit an abstract for this seminar between August 31 and September 21 through the ACLA portal found at their website. All submissions have to go through the ACLA portal; they cannot be sent to me directly. However, if you have any related questions, please feel free to contact me via kmillet1@sfsu.edu.
