Tuesday, October 7, 2014 - 4:49pm
Elizabeth Sheckler/ University of New Hampshire

From Florence Nightingale to Nurse Ratched, nurses have been portrayed by others and by themselves as, in turn, idealized paragons of femininity and vilified portents of social disintegration. This roundtable seeks papers that consider the complex ways in which this ambiguous figure has navigated the wounded bodies, minds, places, and social relationships that litter the pages of literature.

What Does War Look Like?: Visual Trauma and Representation, March 26-29, 2015

Tuesday, October 7, 2014 - 1:31pm
American Comparative Literature Association

Every war has its own patterns of injury based on contemporary military weapons, strategy, and tactics. Unlike in previous wars, the "signature wounds" of the Global War on Terror are the invisible injuries of PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury. While Elaine Scarry has argued that "what is remembered in the body is well remembered" as a record of what happens in war, the visible wounds of war are today less frequently seen. From the ban on showing returning military coffins to restrictions on images of wounded soldiers and civilians to isolated injury care units, the physical wounds of war are often unrepresented and unremembered. This panel explores the ways in which war visibly wounds the body, the nation, the landscape, and the globe.

'Writers in Conversation' contributes to the resources available to researchers internationally and to the development of a creative and engaged critical community.

The Economic in Literature -- ACLA Seminar CFP March 26-29

Monday, October 6, 2014 - 9:31pm
Kyle Wanberg, Ph.D., New York University

We find ourselves in a world where economic logic rules the day. Caught within the rationality of neoliberalism, those of us who contest austerity, privatization, and the concomitant militarization of civil society are often left to counter them through vague logics of redistribution which take as given the very systems of accounting which we seek to undermine.
