Forgotten Bodies will provide a forum in which postgraduate researchers can explore often overlooked discourses, representations and practices relating to embodiment, sexuality and gender. Previous research into this field has often urged overly simplistic hegemonic models of practices, desires and identities, which this conference hopes to reassess. Our main objective is to explore the challenges of not only researching, including but also re-positioning so-called 'forgotten bodies' in academic programmes.
We are inviting paper proposals for an accepted seminar at the 2010 Annual American Comparative Literature Association Meeting (New Orleans, April 1-4).
