How Prayer Solves Problems and Creates Them: Prayer as a Cultural Tool for American Evangelicals

May 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

American Evangelicals believe prayer can do a lot, both for themselves and for the world. Yet just as prayer solves problems for them, it also creates them.  Two especially important problems are spontaneity and certainty: it’s important for Evangelicals to feel as though they “really mean it” when they pray and that they understand God’s will as they seek advice and guidance.

Creature (Dis)comforts: On Human Thresholds from Classical Myth to Modern Day

June 3 @ 9:30 am - 5:30 pm

CMRS Conference The threshold of the home constitutes a literal boundary between public and private, between the domestic and the political. It is also a border that, by its very nature, invites transgression. It is a boundary that exists to be crossed. This conference, organized by Dr. Sara Burdorff (UCLA, English) and Malcolm Harris (UCLA, English) takes the literal liminality of the domestic threshold as its inspiration, exploring the comparable permeability of more abstract thresholds in a wide range of…
