Running for the border

In the good news department, I’ve recently found out that I’ve had two papers accepted at upcoming religious studies/theology conferences. I’ll be presenting a paper called “A Theological Aesthetics of Desire: Divine and Human Eros in Pseudo-Dionysius” at the Eastern Regional Meeting of the American Academy of Religion in Syracuse, NY in May. And barring any unforeseen circumstances, in November I’ll be at the main AAR/SBL annual conference in San Francisco to present a paper called “Mystical Embrace: Barnett Newman, Primal Desire and Apophasis” as part of the Explorations of the Religious in Contemporary Art section. Andrea and I are looking forward to both of these journeys south of the border and the opportunities they will provide for visits to IHOP.
