Ege University 16th International Cultural Studies Symposium (CSS) "NARRATIVES OF TRAUMA"

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 30, 2016

CALL FOR PAPERS

Multidisciplinary academic considerations that define the field of trauma studies are currently being shaped, expanded and redefined by various theoretical openings. As Dominick LaCapra comments: “No genre or discipline owns trauma as a problem or can provide definitive boundaries for it” (Writing History, Writing Trauma 96). For Cathy Caruth, one of the central figures in cultural trauma theory in the early 1990s, trauma is a crisis of narrative and representation, and of truth and history. Trauma theory is also an attempt to trace the different forms of human suffering and our responses to it.

ACLA 2017: Queering the Law: Dialogues on Justice, Transgression and Optimism

updated: 
Tuesday, August 9, 2016 - 3:30pm
Looi van Kessel and Tessa de Zeeuw, Leiden University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

In the context of events such as the recent upsurge in police violence in the US, the rhetoric surrounding the influx of refugees in Europe, and ongoing violence that targets queer communities, this seminar poses the question of justice in relation to the concept of queerness. What questions do alternative structures of political, social and romantic organizing pose to normative social forms? Does justice reside in forms of re-, and counter-alignment, or in the very questioning of the idea of alignment? In other words, how can we read performances and experiences of eccentricity as modes of destabilizing the L/law?
