CALLING ALL CONVERSION-THERAPY SURVIVORS

Are you a conversion-therapy survivor and want to share your experience so that this debunked and dangerous practice doesn’t happen in the future? Individual stories are powerful and have much potential to personalize the often-misunderstood practice of conversion therapy.

Whether or not you have formal training in writing or storytelling, I want to hear from you! I am putting together an edited volume of stories about conversion therapy as told by survivors themselves.

“Putting Our Faith in Institutions”: Religion and Literature Permanent Section

updated: 
Thursday, March 2, 2023 - 4:52pm
Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, April 15, 2023

This year, MMLA’s general call questions what the academy “owe[s] democracy,” namely how academics engage with shared truths. In keeping with the general call, the Religion and Literature permanent section invites proposals that examine how authors interrogate institutionalized systems of belief. 

 

Those aspiring to be on the panel should feel empowered to offer proposals that interpret the concept of religion rather loosely by potentially including the academy as an institution of belief. Maintaining a broad interpretation of religion to include all intersections of faith, folklore, belief, and literature, expressions of belief may include creeds, mottos, mission statements, the constitution, charters, manifestos, doctrines, etc.

The field of narrative medicine recognizes that stories articulate the language of the body. Rita Charon, the founder of the field of narrative medicine, brought both patient and practitioner to a fuller recognition of stories as a source of medical insight and intervention: stories that may take shape in words but originate through bodily drives. Drawing lessons from psychoanalysis about “attention, drives, and relationships,” she reminded us that the nineteenth-century photographs of hysteria captured images of bodies telling stories not yet spoken.
