Writing and dramatising the body : violence, discordance and reconfiguration in English-language literature and drama

updated: 
Saturday, September 3, 2011 - 4:17am
Université Charles de Gaulle - Lille 3 (Lille, France)

Should violence be considered as one of the experiences the body undergoes in literature or as an ordeal which elicits the very question of what this body is – a body which is mapped in language and speech. As a result of the violence that it undergoes, inflicts or self-inflicts, the body grapples with something which is not simply outside itself: it discovers its own foreignness, its own discordance. It rebelliously slips through the categories in which one attempts to contain it, but it also defies the biological body to which it cannot be reduced. What does a body do when, for no apparent reason, it breaks, splits, is pulled asunder, petrified? What happens when the part usurps the whole or the whole body is reduced to nothing, mere refuse?
