International Conference on War, Literature & the Arts, Sep 16-18 2010, United States Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, CO
An International Conference on War, Literature & the Arts at the United States Air Force Academy solicits both disciplinary and interdisciplinary presentations on "Representing and Reporting America's Wars: 1990 to Present." The conference seeks a variety of genre submissions, both critical and creative, including literary criticism, journalism, rhetorical analysis, cultural studies, theory, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, film studies, photography, painting, or music. As an international forum on recent warfare, the conference is designed to bring together a multitude of perspectives, critical approaches, and discourse communities on the topics of warfare and its representations in the Balkans, Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan. We encourage submissions that illuminate, challenge, deconstruct, engage with, or create not simply the 'official' representations of America's wars, but the sub-cultures that merit a more nuanced or sophisticated intellectual exploration. Abstracts should include requirements for audiovisual support, computers, display space, or other technical requirements.
Submissions window: November 1, 2009 through March 15, 2010, to the email listed above.
