CfP: The Devil 20/20

CfP: The Devil 20/20

12-14 November 2020, University of King’s College, Halifax

“The Devil 20/20” explores the nature, significance, and operation of demonism and demonization at all points in the western tradition. This conference will bring together scholars interested in the social construction of the devil and the impact of demonism across different chronological periods and from diverse methodological perspectives. It aims to foster interdisciplinary dialogue that addresses challenging questions about how notions of the demonic are shaped by cultural priorities and anxieties, by professional discerners and the media, and by discourses of fear and safety. “The Devil 20/20” will investigate why these images repeat throughout the ages and why they continue to have resonance in the modern world.

Submissions due: 15 April 2020 to: devil2020conference@gmail.com.
