[UPDATE] Essay Collection: Representations of Beauty and Violence

Thursday, November 18, 2010 - 8:05pm
University of Northern British Columbia

CALL FOR PAPERS: ESSAY COLLECTION
REPRESENTATIONS OF BEAUTY AND VIOLENCE--Abstracts FEB 1, 2011

We are seeking essays that theorize the relationship between and inter-implication of beauty and violence in literature, theatre, film and art. While inquiring into the discursive constructions and multi-layered cultural re-enactments of the "violence mythos," we are interested in the mechanisms of conversion whereby the seductive powers of aestheticized violence allow a reader/viewer to move past a "front- line vocabulary of cruelty" (Katherine Ackley) and become captivated by the beauty of such representations. How, in other words, do aesthetics intersect with violence?
