KEYNOTE ADDRESS: Dr. William Arnal

William Arnal is Professor and Head of the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Regina. His research focuses mainly on Christian origins, with specific attention to the intellectual dimensions of early Christian literary production; secondarily, he has developed an interest in the political functions of contemporary religion, and the political implications of demarcating a realm of human doings as “religious.” His articles have appeared in Method and Theory in the Study of Religion,Journal of Biblical Literature, Journal of the American Academy of Religion, and Harvard Theological Review, among others. His books include Jesus and the Village Scribes (2001), The Symbolic Jesus (2005), and The Sacred is the Profane (with Russell McCutcheon, 2013). He shares three cats and a purple house with his partner, Dr. Darlene Juschka.
