New Deadline for "Cross Cultural Explorations of Trauma" at the North
East MLA, Baltimore March 1-4.

Despite Cathy Caruth's claim in her landmark collection "Trauma:
Explorations in Memory" that "trauma itself may provide the very link
between cultures," trauma has been infrequently explored from
cross-cultural and non-Western perspectives. This panel seeks to examine
the relationship between trauma and culture, to explore and possibly
critique the Eurocentric perspective of trauma studies, and to
investigate the manner in which trauma reinvigorates psychoanalysis with
the work of cultural critique.

Paper topics might consider the following questions:

Call For Papers
Visualization and Narrative: A themed issue of Reconstruction

Reconstruction: Studies in Contemporary Culture
<reconstruction.eserver.org> is soliciting papers for a special themed
issue on visualisation and narrative--with special reference to
filmmaking, information design, and computing.

Visualisation consists of the visual representation and analysis of
processes over time, in dynamically changing information spaces.

As filmmaking has moved to digital formats in writing screenplays,
making images and sounds and editing and manipulating those images,
all filmmaking processes are actually or potentially subject to
visualisation.
