EABS (European Association of Biblical Studies) Annual Meeting 2013, Leipzig, July 30th-August 2nd, 2013.
The “Science Fiction and the Bible” workshop is running for the first time at EABS Annual Meeting in Leipzig.
You are cordially invited to propose papers which critically and creatively engage with the possibilities of discussing the Bible informed by Science Fiction (SF).
Papers could apply knowledge of SF and SF theory to consider whether new insights can be derived from applying concepts of SF to aspects of the Bible, or papers could bring SF texts, films, or artefacts into a hypothetical dialogue with biblical passages to reconsider what we thought we already knew.
Themes can include but are not limited to: visions of future architecture or future modes of being, encounters with the other,
extraordinary biology or geography, extraordinary modes of travel,
extraordinary spaces and locations, accounts of transformations etc.
Online abstract submission is open from December 1st until February 1st: <http://www.eabs.net>.
