THE CONFERENCE ON CHRISTIANITY AND LITERATURE is an interdisciplinary society dedicated to exploring the relationships between Christianity and literature. Organized formally in 1956, CCL is dedicated to both scholarly excellence and collegial exchange and includes hundreds of members from a variety of academic institutions and religious traditions from the United States, Canada, and more than a dozen other countries.
Does literature have transformative potential? Does it increase one’s capacity to pay attention or empathize? Does it form reader’s subjective emotional states? Please join us for the following session at the Modern Language Association annual convention in Chicago, January 3-6, 2019.
