Journal of Literary and Cultural Disability Studies – Special Issue
Call for Papers: Disability and Visual Culture
Guest Editors: Dr Alice Hall (University of York) and Professor Tobin Siebers (University of Michigan)
In the last two decades, there has been an unprecedented explosion in visual culture. If we live in the 'age of the image', what does this mean for disability studies? From the Venus de Milo to Marc Quinn's Alison Lapper Pregnant (2005), or Diane Arbus's photographs to the media representations of the London 2012 Paralympians, visual representations of disability call into question notions of normalcy, aesthetic value and beauty.
The 5TH International "LITERATURE AND…" Graduate Student Conference:

Images of Terror, Narratives of (In)security: Literary, Artistic and Cultural Responses:23-24 April 2013
One of the greatest paradoxes of the 21st century is the fact that, even though western societies have reached an outstanding scientific and technological development, fear and insecurity continue to be very much alive in public discourse as well as in our private life. Concerns about terrorism, urban criminality, global epidemics, computer piracy and organized crime and, more recently, about the outcomes of the financial and economic crises circulate widely in the media and their highly politicized representations shape much of our everyday life.
