radical artists, activists, theorists and academics together to
discuss past and present convergences between the theories and
practices of artists and writers and the theories and practices of
movements for radical social change.

An International Conference to be held at the University of Caen
Basse-Normandie - France -
         14 & 15 June 2007 -

    A (land)scape does not just spring up into existence, and is no absolute
either. In it, through it, a certain culture, and desires express
themselves, a subject is speaking, discourses are interwoven and
disseminated. Our conference will endeavour to sketch the many
crisscrossings which happen in a landscape.

New Deadline for "Cross Cultural Explorations of Trauma" at the North
East MLA, Baltimore March 1-4.

Despite Cathy Caruth's claim in her landmark collection "Trauma:
Explorations in Memory" that "trauma itself may provide the very link
between cultures," trauma has been infrequently explored from
cross-cultural and non-Western perspectives. This panel seeks to examine
the relationship between trauma and culture, to explore and possibly
critique the Eurocentric perspective of trauma studies, and to
investigate the manner in which trauma reinvigorates psychoanalysis with
the work of cultural critique.

Paper topics might consider the following questions:
