Trauma: Writing, Image, Affect

We are soliciting previously unpublished articles or essays for an edited collection on the topic of trauma in relation to writing, image and affect. Trauma theory has both widened and deepened its scope since it rose to prominence within Holocaust Studies, while the "affective turn" has produced work of significant value and considerable controversy in multiple disciplines, as well as being an emerging theory within creative practice disciplines. Trauma: Writing, Image, Affect explores the intersections between trauma and affect and the possibilities, potentials and problems of bringing these two theoretical realms together, with a particular focus on their operations in writing and image.

This panel will consider the force of digitization and new social media on Marxist theory and practice as well as, conversely, the force of Marxism on digital media theory and practice. What are the challenges, opportunities, and limits of the new social media in transforming the revolutionary subjects and sites of recent social movements, emergent multitudes, and virtual communities that gather strength from and part company with Marxism? How do digital archives, digital scholarship, and digital aesthetic practices in the age of hyper-capitalism advance and constrain the promise of a Marxist future to come?
