CFP: 4th Global Conference: Trauma: Theory and Practice
full name / name of organization:
Dr. Rob Fisher/ Inter-Disciplinary.Net
4th Global Conference
Saturday 22nd March – Tuesday 25th March 2014
Call for Presentations
Trauma has a thematic identity that exists on the interdisciplinary fringes of other subject areas, either peripherally nudging, or fully penetrating existing research, shifting cultures and influencing global politics. Thus, while we continue to welcome research papers of core theoretical and clinical interest, we would also warmly encourage those papers that address: critical questions of practice; practical projects; first-hand survivor/bystander reports of individual and collective experiences; and, those that interrogate, critique, represent, or create works that deal with fictional and actual traumatic events.
We would also like to encourage presentations that take the following forms: auto-ethnographical and experiential accounts, case studies, papers, performance pieces, reports, works of art, works-in-progress, and workshops.
Finally, submissions which engage with the aftermath of trauma as a space of potential opportunity for change, emotional growth, identity shifts, or developing spirituality are particularly welcome across any of the following themes.
1. Public and Political Trauma
2. Personal and Individual Trauma
3. Diagnosing and Treating Trauma
4. Theorising Trauma
5. Representing Trauma
