COSPONSORED SESSION: Religion and Popular Culture Unit and SBL Bible and Popular Culture Unit

Call for Proposals

The AAR’s Religion and Popular Culture Unit and the SBL’s Bible and Popular Culture Unit invite proposals for a joint session exploring the influence, artistry, and cultural impact of Kanye West. We invite analyses of West (through, for instance, his lyrics/music/albums, videos, religious services, and branding) and his international cultural impact through a range of methodologies, including textual criticism; biblical reception studies; ethnography; ritual and media studies; and other approaches that critically examine West’s use of Bible and biblical/religious imagery and the impact of his oeuvre on contemporary religion and popular culture.
