Scholarship on the global Middle Ages has flourished in recent years, examining the role that a

global community played in the medieval period. Such work demonstrates the remarkable links

between various civilizations in the medieval period and the extent to which the Middle Ages truly

were a hotbed of trade. Recent scholarship has considered the cultural interactions of trade, literary

transmission, pilgrimage, religious conversion, explorers, colonization, and military expeditions. For

instance, literary scholars have shown that the story of Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, traveled from

India through texts in Armenian, Arabic, Ethiopic, Georgian, Greek, Latin, Russian, and other versions,

Technological advances at the intersection between science and art have provided new ways of scrutinizing and representing microcosmic and the macrocosmic realms by multiplying the scales and the processes involved in the constitution of the material world. Technologies such as the microscope, photography, imaging technologies (PET scan, X-ray, MRI), human-made mutations and microcinematography have challenged the boundaries between the animate and the inanimate, and have posed important challenges to traditional notions of the organic and inorganic, human and non-human, nature and urban, normalcy and pathology.

Ege University 16th International Cultural Studies Symposium (CSS) "NARRATIVES OF TRAUMA"

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 31, 2017

CALL FOR PAPERS

Multidisciplinary academic considerations that define the field of trauma studies are currently being shaped, expanded and redefined by various theoretical openings. As Dominick LaCapra comments: “No genre or discipline owns trauma as a problem or can provide definitive boundaries for it” (Writing History, Writing Trauma 96). For Cathy Caruth, one of the central figures in cultural trauma theory in the early 1990s, trauma is a crisis of narrative and representation, and of truth and history. Trauma theory is also an attempt to trace the different forms of human suffering and our responses to it.
