The Bible and Early Modern Radicals: Milton, Bunyan, and Others.

Led by Dr. Angelica Duran (Purdue University)

The English Department at The Ohio State University will host an
international conference in 2011 on the 400th anniversary of the publication
of the King James (or Authorized) Version of the Bible. Held in *Columbus,
Ohio from May 5-7, 2011*, the conference will focus on the making of the KJV
in the context of Reformation Bible translation and printing as well as on
the KJV’s long literary and cultural influence from Milton and Bunyan to
Faulkner, Woolf, and Toni Morrison. Events will include plenary lectures and
discussions, roundtable seminars, an exhibit by the OSU Rare Books and
Manuscript Library, and a special reading and Q&A session with
Pulitzer-Prize-winning author *Edward P. Jones* (*Lost in the City; The
Known World; All Aunt Hagar’s Children*).  *Submission deadlines have been
extended, so don’t miss the chance to participate in this exciting event!
Please refer to http://kingjamesbible.osu.edu for further conference info,
and contact kjvconference at osu.edu with any questions.*

We are currently seeking *participants for a roundtable seminar on “The
Bible and Early Modern Radicals: Milton, Bunyan, and Others.”* Each
participant will *submit a short position paper in advance of the conference
*; Dr. Duran will then read all the papers, formulate discussion questions,
and circulate the papers and questions to participants. She will determine
more precise schedules and seminar requirements, once enrollments have been
reviewed and approved.

Potential texts for this seminar include *Paradise Lost*, *Paradise Regained
*, *Samson Agonistes*, *Pilgrim’s Progress*, or any of the poetry and prose
of Milton and Bunyan. Topics are open within the general area, but should
encourage wide-ranging thematic discussion, which will comprise much of the
actual conference.

*Please submit questions or project titles & statements of interest to
kjvconference at osu.edu by September 30, 2010. **Thank you for your interest!*
