This panel explores the interrelations between literary form and genre, spirituality, and political thinking in the global 20th century. Panelists are encouraged to consider contributing on topics related to literature's relation to secularism/post-secularism, mysticism and the occult, global spiritualities, religious nationalisms, transnationalisms, and cosmopolitanisms in the 20th century. Interdisciplinary approaches that address literary-aesthetic or formal concerns are also welcome.
