Due to a very unfortunate error, the original cfp (see below) mistakingly
stated that panel presenters must hold a Ph.D. Submissions are of course
invited from anyone interested in presenting on the panel, regardless of
educational or professional status. My sincere apologies for the error.

AIDS in Literature (4/14/06; MMLA, 11/09-12/06; Chicago, IL)
 
In "AIDS, Keywords and Cultural Work," Jan Zita Grover remarks that people infected with HIV/AIDS find the boundaries of normativity challenged and re-configured and that people carrying the virus no longer view themselves as integrated, "but instead as a container for the virus." Michel Foucault underscores Grover's claim, linking the fear of death resulting from AIDS to using such fractive or dis-integrative strategies to cope with the fear of impending death.

CFP: Visual Archives and Embodied Practice

This panel looks to the archive as a motivating device for intervention, rather
than as an inert repository of empirical data. In other words, we're interested
in discussing how archival research becomes embodied in practices, and would
like to reconsider the agents and institutions mediating these embodiments.
