Silence!
McGill Art History and Communication Studies Graduate Student Conference
CFP Deadline: March 1st, 2015.
Conference Date: April 24, 2015.
McGill University, Montréal

Silence itself—the things one declines to say, or is forbidden to name, the discretion that is required between different speakers—is less the absolute limit of discourse, the other side from which it is separated by a strict boundary, than an element that functions alongside the things said, with them and in relation to them within over-all strategies. [...]There is not one but many silences, and they are an integral part of the strategies that underlie and permeate discourses. (Michel Foucault, The History of Sexuality Vol. 1: An Introduction )
