This panel invites proposals on the engagement of assimilated Jewish writers and artists in discourses on Christianity, religion and spirituality in Viennese Modernism. Literary or interdisciplinary approaches to topics such as Jewish perspectives on Christianity vis à vis science, philosophy and art, the revision of Biblical narratives, the meaning of symbolism and rites, are welcome, as well as the contextualization of these works with those of non-Jewish contemporaries. Please submit abstracts (200-300 words) and a brief academic biography to Caroline Kita at ckita@holycross.edu by September 30, 2012.
