War & the (Re)Invention of Communications & Communities (11/01/07;
2/29/08-3/1/08) Arizona State U.
Paper Submission Deadline Extended to Nov. 1, 2007
How does the (re)invention of communications and communities intersect with
issues of war? How can war, totalitarianism, or torture be reconsidered
regarding transmission, translation, and transgression? Examples could
include transmission of information to communities about war via media and
visual images; translation of trauma to the body into writing or speaking;
how literature, art, creative writing, rhetoric, etc. might translate war;
and transgressions against the nation-state, religion, gender, violence, etc.
