Social factors such as race, gender, and class influence relationships of power between individuals and groups, separating those with access to cultural, political, and financial resources from those without. Functioning as overlapping lenses through which to examine cultural texts, they can be used as tools with which to condone or contest repression and domination in the daily lives of individuals.

Nationalisme sans frontières: The National Francophone Text
Technological advances at the intersection between science and art have provided new ways of scrutinizing and representing microcosmic and the macrocosmic realms by multiplying the scales and the processes involved in the constitution of the material world. Technologies such as the microscope, photography, imaging technologies (PET scan, X-ray, MRI), human-made mutations and microcinematography have challenged the boundaries between the animate and the inanimate, and have posed important challenges to traditional notions of the organic and inorganic, human and non-human, nature and urban, normalcy and pathology.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Multidisciplinary academic considerations that define the field of trauma studies are currently being shaped, expanded and redefined by various theoretical openings. As Dominick LaCapra comments: “No genre or discipline owns trauma as a problem or can provide definitive boundaries for it” (Writing History, Writing Trauma 96). For Cathy Caruth, one of the central figures in cultural trauma theory in the early 1990s, trauma is a crisis of narrative and representation, and of truth and history. Trauma theory is also an attempt to trace the different forms of human suffering and our responses to it.
