Syl-la-ble: Performing Syntactic Vulnerability

This panel addresses the roles that syntax and performance play in telling the stories of people who live, or live within, bodily transformations. An accident, an operation, a condition, even a diagnosis can alter the definition of the self. What results is a literary genre, the memoirs of people with bodies in pain. Is the vulnerability of language to nonsense (as in the loss of a syllable from a familiar word) analogous to the experience of such a self? How does the loss of an organ, of a function, of a potential, or the compensatory gain of a prosthesis produce writing? How can the ontological condition of "becoming a patient" be seen as an artistic genre or condition?

The human body has continued to captivate intellectuals of the arts and sciences throughout history, whether through an aesthetic or physiological study of its structural form and internal mechanisms or in an attempt to comprehend the complexities of the mind that reside within the biological machine. Literature, art, music, film, and storytelling often turn our attention to these ideas of the body, and their inquiries into the physical body and the mind have framed our universal conceptions of health and disease, while also giving rise to myriad variations on the notions of bodily normality and abnormality. The body becomes a receptacle for our non-corporeal collective and individual identities, divisions, and prejudices.
