COV&R-Bulletin No. 3 (Sept. 1992)
The next annual meeting of COV&R will take place April 22-24, 1993 at the University of North Carolina. Theme: "Literature and the Sacred." Judith Arias and Cesáreo Bandera will be the organizers. We thank Cesáreo for the invitation and Judith for agreeing to serve as the primary administrative facilitator. Proposals for papers and workshops should be sent to her.
In 1994, the meeting will be held in Wiesbaden, Germany, probably in June, with focus on social philosophy and the work of Jean-Pierre Dupuy.
Keeping with a precedent of the last two years, COV&R will meet in conjunction with AAR/SBL, this year in San Francisco. This will be on Friday, November 20 in Monterey A of the San Francisco Hilton. Charles Mabee will present a paper on "The Problem of Myth: Bultmann and Girard," with René Girard and Robert Hamerton-Kelly responding, and there will be a discussion of James Williams's book, The Bible, Violence, and the Sacred, with René Girard and Leo Perdue as panelists. It should also be noted that René will give a major address ("The Satan of the Gospels") at AAR on Monday, November 23 at 8.00 p.m. (SFO - Hilton Square).
