About Face: Depicting the Self in the Written and Visual Arts

Prosopopeia is the trope of autobiography, by which one’s name . . . is made as intelligible and
memorable as a face.
PAUL DE MAN, Autobiography as De-facement

I approach the self not as an entity but as an activity, a continual process that gives rise to
concepts by which an
individual both distinguishes herself from others . . . and situates herself in relation to these
other[s].
JENIJOY LA BELLE, Herself Beheld

Philosophy and the Event is a graduate student conference that will be held at Emory University
from 02/29/08-03/01/08 focusing on the notion of the event in postmodern thought and its roots
in the history of philosophy. The keynote speaker will be John D. Caputo. We are calling for papers
that deal with the notion of the event in such thinkers as Caputo, Heidegger, Derrida, Deleuze,
Badiou, Benjamin, Zizek, etc. Especially, we are looking for papers that tie the notion of the event
to postmodernism as a whole movement and attempt to show how an emphasis on the event
characterizes philosophy today as distinct from or fundamentally similar to other movements in the

The Marianne Moore Society and the H.D. International Society invite papers
to be delivered at a joint panel at the American Literature Association
Conference in San Francisco, May 22-25, 2008.

Marianne Moore and H.D. met at Bryn Mawr and later reconnected when Moore
submitted poetry to the journal The Egoist, for which H.D. was acting as an
editor. That connection grew into a significant literary friendship that
lasted well beyond the Second World War. This panel seeks papers that
present new readings of the biographical and/or textual connections between
these two major modernist writers.

Papers are sought for a proposed panel on “Representations of Trauma in
Literature and Film” at the Cultural Studies Association Annual Meeting at
New York University, May 22-24, 2008.
Psychotherapists such as Dori Laub, Bessel van der Kolk, Onno van der Hart,
and Judith Herman have repeatedly underscored the visual nature of
traumatic experiences, which tend to be engraved in memory in the form of
images or icons. This would suggest that visual media provide the most
expedient canvas for representing these moments of crisis, and movies like
Sidney Lumet’s The Pawnbroker (1964), Christopher Nolan’s Memento (2000),
or Brad Anderson’s The Machinist (2004) confirm the validity of this
