The 10th Annual New Voices Conference focuses on representations of the Apocalypse as they manifest throughout history, across cultures, and in language. The conference committee invites papers dealing with any aspect of mankind's conception of the End-of-Days. Individual papers or panel proposals may center upon any time period and any culture or people. They may furthermore draw thematically from such academic disciplines as literary criticism and theory, medieval and renaissance studies, poetry, fiction, philosophy, religious studies, medieval and renaissance studies, art history, biblical history, cultural geography, and folklore. We also welcome papers exploring the rhetoric of the apocalypse, which may range from interrogations of the political rhetoric of alarmism to the religious rhetoric of technology-age theology.
