Catholicism, Literature, and the Arts II: Legacies and Revivals
The second biennial conference will explore key questions concerning the relationship between Catholicism and the arts, including literature, music, and visual art. What substantive relationships of conceptual and formal influence exist between Catholicism and the arts? Is there such a thing as Catholic literature, Catholic music, and Catholic art? If so, in what ways does their catholicity reside in relevant ideas, attitudes, values, and beliefs?
This conference is organised and hosted by the Centre for Catholic Studies (Durham University), the University of Notre Dame, and Ushaw College. Keynote speakers will include our own Patricia Waugh on Catholicism and Muriel Spark, and Martin Dubois on poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins.
