Call for Papers

Embodied Politics in Visual Autobiography (collection; abstracts due May 15/08)

We invite contributions for a proposed collection of essays on visual
autobiography, focusing on health, bodies, and embodied subjectivities. The
collection will consider how cultural practices of self-narration and
self-portraiture image and imagine unruly bodies and, in so doing, respond
to Patricia Zimmermann’s call for “radical media democracies that animate
contentious public spheres” (2000, p. xx).
