Vicarious Trauma - ALA Boston Panel - Due 1/15/15

Ashley N. Doonan / University of New Hampshire

I am seeking fellow panelists to present on a panel loosely based on trauma--from psychological perspectives to literary trauma theory. The work that I am hoping to present is focused on vicarious trauma--a trauma transmitted but not experienced directly.

Submissions need not be more than 300 words and may be emailed to me directly.

I also have set up an excellent chair for the panel, who has done a great deal with trauma theory in her dissertation.

Please feel free to contact me with further questions.

"Collective intelligence has to organise itself into a hostile intelligence — also in the sense of inoculating the host as a malignant parasite. An alien intelligence is not concerned with any orthodoxy, it proliferates and organises its own heresies".

Circling Our Wagons Conference: Stories and Histories of Hip Hop
April 16-19, 2015
Rap music is a black cultural expression that prioritizes black voices from the margins of urban America. Rap music is a form of rhymed storytelling accompanied by highly rhythmic, electronically based music. It began in the mid-1970s in the South Bronx in New York City as a part of hip hop, an African-American and Afro-Caribbean youth culture composed of graffiti, breakdancing, and rap music. From the outset, rap music has articulated the pleasures and problems of urban black life in contemporary America.

2015 ASA Panel: "Autistics Speak: Narrative Challenges to Neurotypical Dominance" (250 wd. abstracts due 1/5/15)

Tova Cooper (Panel Organizer) for American Studies Association 2015 Meeting

In November 2013, the autism community vocally criticized Suzanne Wright, the co-founder of Autism Speaks, for characterizing autism as a "monumental health crisis" that brings "despair" to the families and caretakers of autistics. Wright's critics, including Jon Elder Robinson (who resigned from the organization's board after the incident), were disturbed by her suggestion that autism is a "national emergency" that produces misery for everyone involved. Wright's comments privilege neurotypical views and behaviors rather than acknowledging that many individuals on the autism spectrum experience the world in an atypical but not inferior way.
