Call For Papers: One session invites proposals of papers focused on the representation of the Moses/Exodus tradition in moving images, including but not limited to Ridley Scott's 'Gods and Kings' (rel. December, 2014). A second open session invites the proposal of papers on any topic related to the use, influence, and development of biblical texts, motifs, and themes in the various media of the moving image, including cinema throughout its history, television, and the interactive narratives of gaming media. Papers which break new ground in any of these areas are particularly welcome.
