Autism and Representation Friday 24th Feb 2006

A colloquium hosted by the Association for Research in Popular Fictions at Liverpool John Moores University

 

 

This colloquium seeks to consolidate, encourage & advance the growing body of cultural analysis concerned with cognitive disabilities, especially autism.

 

The rising rate of diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorders coupled with the popularisation of neurological research (not to mention the popularity of a certain well known novel) has made autism the disorder 'de rigueur' for the beginning of the 21st century.

 

This colloquium aims to map out the discursive challenges, limits, dangers and potentialities of this cultural phenomenon.

"Women's Autobiography: Private Memories, Public Voices." Panel for Northeast Modern Language Association (NEMLA), Philadelphia, March 2-5, 2006.

This panel will examine critical questions about women's autobiographical writing, a topic which has generated wide interest over the past three decades. Looking at women's writing in this genre from historical and theoretical perspectives complicates the issues raised in discussions of autobiographical writing and identifies the use of strategies such as imitation, masquerade, subversion, and disruption of conventions. Papers may focus on different types of autobiographical writing by women in different historical time periods and cultures.

mapping the continued vitality of photography for imaging or organizing an
oppositional politics. By exploring the politics of visual culture-
photography as activist practice— this anthology aims to contribute to
recent debate on social movements that stress the role of culture.
Especially welcome are essays that explore the new political objectives and
