Thrall Presents on Religion and Science Fiction

James Thrall (Religious Studies) presented papers on representations of sacred texts in Philip K. Dick’s science fiction novel The Man in the High Castle and the Amazon Prime television series based on it, at the International Society for Media, Religion and Culture conference in Seoul, Korea, in August, and the International Society for Religion, Literature and Culture conference in Glasgow, Scotland, in September. The papers drew on a book chapter on “The Authority of Sacred Texts in Science Fiction” that Thrall contributed to The Routledge Companion to Literature and Religion published earlier this year.
