This panel proposes to explore the relationship between the science of medicine and the art of representation. The power of language to create and control lived experiences within a social context is widely accepted. We know that the way in which we experience gender, sexuality, and other identity constructs are formed by the words we use. We also know that power dynamics are shaped and reinforced by domestic and public discourse. This panel seeks to explore these issues in the medical field. How does the language we use to represent medical realities shape or create the experience of various medical conditions? How can the diagnostic categories we use to describe illness or other disorders influence the ways in which we experience them?

In the history of science, it has been well-documented that institutionalized science and professional scientific circles actively and systematically excluded people from their ranks based on gender, race, and class. However, what has been underrepresented is the scientific work and endeavors of the marginalized groups themselves. This session seeks to recover some of these excluded voices and stories by investigating the creative, alternative ways that these groups participated in scientific discourse.

A symposium hosted by the Centre for Modernism Studies in Australia

Saturday 16th of May, 2015

The novel as a distinct genre of prose emerged in the period of modernity. From the eighteenth century, marked by scholars as the period of the 'rise of the novel', to the late twentieth century, during which the trope of 'the death of the novel' gained cultural traction, the novel has sought to both draw upon and distinguish itself from other narrative genres, from history, biography, memoir, and travelogues, to film, television, and digital storytelling.

Abstracts are being welcomed for a proposed collection examining the toy as hero. Toys, a celebrated part of childhood and often key figures in children's imaginative play, have a fantastic history of heroism in print and on film. Open to examinations of literature, comics, and film, the collection seeks to be a repository of original essays that analyze the roles toys play as protectors of the child(ren) they love, as heroes of their own stories, or as champions for the greater good.
