Call for Papers--"The Poetics of Liturgy and Place" conference in London

Conference Theme: Catholicism, Literature, and the Arts III: The Poetics of Liturgy and Place 
Conference Dates: July 12-14, 2022
Deadline to submit paper proposals: May 16, 2022
Hosted by: Durham University's Centre for Catholic Studies, in collaboration with the University of Notre Dame's London Global Gateway 
Location: London 
Registration & Details:  

This interdisciplinary conference will explore the Catholic tradition’s contribution to "place-making" through the arts, including architecture, graphic arts, sculpture, drama, literature, and music. How do the arts create, shape, or contest Catholic global, regional, and local identities? How might the liturgy shape our understanding of "place" and, in turn, how might our perception and creation of "place" inform or reform the liturgy? What difference do the material surroundings in which we encounter religious artworks make to our reception of them? And how has art in the Catholic tradition attended to the "displaced", the homeless, refugees, and to the "more-than-human" world?
