Violent bodies pervade literature and cultural history and remain a topic of profound importance in current events. Bodies both commit acts of violence -- from the "law-making" violence of interpersonal conflict to the "law-preserving" state violence of the body politic (Benjamin) -- and also experience violence inflicted upon them, often for expressly political purposes. Scholars such as Elaine Scarry and Lauren Berlant have studied how violence reconstitutes its victims' realities through the affective structures of trauma and pain. Others have focused on how certain bodies can be scripted as violent.

The House in the Mind: Architectural Space and the Imagination

A conference to be held at Wadham College, Oxford
Wednesday 16 – Thursday 17 March 2016

From its use in classical and medieval arts of memory to its presence in the work of contemporary artists and writers, the house has been a recurrent, even haunting image. In recent art and literature, it has been used as a symbol with a wide variety of social and political resonances, but also has intimate links with the creative process, exploring memory, imagination and the interactions between them. It is here, in particular, that there are striking consonances with medieval and early modern writing influenced by the arts of memory.
