[Last minute CFP] Seeing Things: Dreams, Visions and Hallucinations/ NeMLA 2010

updated: 
Sunday, September 27, 2009 - 2:10pm
full name / name of organization: 
Anna Strowe

This panel explores the connections between reality and imagined or imaginary worlds by examining the ways in which sight, and in particular the seeing of things that are not present or do not exist, contributes to knowledge and understanding. The faculty of vision is often a metaphor for understanding and learning, and the mystical or otherworldly vision represents not only an explanation for the integration and processing of new information into an older worldview, but a metaphorical space in which personal growth can be demonstrated through "seeing" new connections and truths.

CFP: 2010 National PCA Fat Studies (St. Louis 3/31-4/3; December 1, 2009)

updated:

full name / name of organization: 
Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association

Fat Studies is becoming an interdisciplinary, cross-disciplinary field of study that confronts and critiques cultural constraints against notions of "fatness" and "the fat body"; explores fat bodies as they live in, are shaped by, and remake the world; and creates paradigms for the development of fat acceptance or celebration within mass culture. Fat Studies uses body size as the starting part for a wide-ranging theorization and explication of how societies and cultures, past and present, have conceptualized all bodies and the political/cultural meanings ascribed to every body.
