CFP: ICMS Kalamazoo 2020, May 7-10

ACLA 2020: Literary Diagnosis and the Anti-Medical Humanities

With Health Humanities programs on the rise and medical memoirs flooding our bookshelves, it is easy to forget that the alliances forged between literary representation and medical discourse are new and fragile. From the 19th century onwards, writers from a multitude of traditions have squared off against doctors for the right to diagnostic prominence, particularly in capturing the "essence" of disease and the dis-eased body/mind. Their motivations, meanwhile, have spanned from the starkly political -- such Joseph Brodsky's mid-century assault on Soviet psychiatric norms -- to the intensely personal -- the use of faux-medical terminology in the memoir of French writer Camille de Peretti to expose the subjectivity at the heart of clinical observation.

This panel explores different urban spaces depicted in popular French and Francophone cultural production, such as crime and science fiction artworks. What are the connotations of urban spaces and how are they represented in these narratives? What does it mean for crime to be located in a particular space? What do construals of futuristic cityscapes say about our understanding of present-day cities? How do these descriptions compare to earlier representations of urban spaces, such as those that appear in realist novels, historical fiction, theater or poetry?
