Violent Bodies Graduate Conference at The Ohio State University, Oct. 30th-31st, 2015

Monday, May 25, 2015 - 11:03pm
English Graduate Organization (EGO) at The Ohio State University

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.
