The meeting seeks to examine, assess and explore the multiple uses and
contexts in which testimony finds a voice. It takes for its theme
Testimony: Memory, Trauma, Truth, and Engagement. Why testimony? How
is it defined? How is testimony used in contexts such as legal,
restorative, pedagogical, artistic, clinical, to name a few? Why does
it continue to thrive and evolve in the twenty-first century and does
it, or does it not, differ from earlier modes, times, cultures?

This conference will examine Ellroy's influence on the genre, his inspirations as a writer and his achievements in forging an idiosyncratic and unique style.

The Journal of Digital Media Arts and Practice is dedicated to providing a platform for scholarly and creative publishing on the burning issues in the rapidly evolving, always contested, and unpredictable field of new media and digital media arts. The purpose of the journal is to provoke questions and discussion on digital media arts research and practice as a means of moving the field forward with rigor, thoughtfulness, and collaboration.
Topics might include but are not limited to:
Though the chick lit genre is most often cited as a location for the study of contemporary white women's experiences or perhaps to debate the genre's feminist credentials, it has in the last fifteen years emerged as a site where protagonists of many ethnicities negotiate their cultural identities and notions of national belonging. In novels such as Alisa Valdes Rodriguez's The Dirty Girls Social Club (2003) or Tara FT Sering's Amazing Grace (2008), Latina, African-American, South Asian-American, and Chinese-American protagonists redefine their relationship to the United States, their families, and their heritage while at the same time they attempt to achieve, in typical chick lit fashion, some measure of success.
"Circulating Notions of TB"
Conference papers invited that examine the representation of patients' experiences with tuberculosis in imaginative, digital, and other texts.
How do these narratives, metaphors, or images intersect with or even actively shape public behavior, public health initiatives, public thought, or other things "public" (like public personas)?
Ideally, I'd like this panel to explore notions of TB and their public circulation, broadly construed, from within various historical and national contexts.
