I am seeking paper proposals for a panel to be proposed for the Cultural Studies Association Conference to be held March 28-April 1 at the University of California in San Diego. This particular panel will consider the ways in which expressions of the material body articulate, negotiate, and/or represent individual or collective experiences of psychological trauma. Paper proposals that engage with issues of ethnicity and gender are especially encouraged. Please send 250-500 word abstracts and C.V. to Terra Caputo at by August 15, 2011.
