Bible and Visual Culture

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Papers are now invited for the Bible and Visual Culture seminar of the International SBL 2015. Proposals should focus on topics that present an original, distinctive, and creative visual interpretation of a biblical text, narrative, or character. In keeping with the seminar’s overall aim of exploring biblical works of art in the venue where the SBL takes place, we would like to give first consideration to the art in Buenos Aires, a city that is a rich center of Latin American faith and culture. Submissions may draw from such institutions as the National Museum of Decorative Arts, the MALBA, Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (MNBA), Eduardo Sívori Museum, the Fortabat Art Collection, and the Juan B. Ambrosetti Museum of Ethnography. Presenters can also broaden the scope to include artists and works from throughout Latin America.
