The 2010 Conference on Christianity and Literature Mideast Regional Conference.

The 2010 Conference on Christianity and Literature Mideast Regional Conference will be held at Grove City College in Grove City, Pennsylvania, from March 11-13. The theme of the conference is "Pilgrims in Place." Featured speakers include Steven Bouma-Prediger, Professor of Religion at Hope College, and Farrell O'Gorman, novelist and Associate Professor of Catholic Studies at Depaul University.

Scholars at the meeting will explore intersections between Christianity, literature, and notions of pilgrimage and place--particularly the seeming tension between the necessary discipline of place that Wendell Berry writes about and the equally compelling disposition of Gabriel Marcel's homo viator or Walker Percy's castaway (among many others). This three-day conference will include traditional panels by faculty and several undergraduate student panels with faculty moderators.
