The concept of écriture feminine, or female writing, often elides the mediating function that writing entails. Acting as a stand between or a intermediate stage between two parties, writing and generalized writing as it extends to alternative forms of media, constitutes and performs a philosophy of media. This panel aims to consider how feminist philosophies specifically are informed by, and constituted through textual, literary, visual, and performative mediations. How does gender factor in to philosophical debates, and how is this factor communicated? How does the body serve as an instrument of gendered philosophical inquiry? How do technologies inform or change the way we think of feminism?

Friday, December 30, 2016

CALL FOR PAPERS

Multidisciplinary academic considerations that define the field of trauma studies are currently being shaped, expanded and redefined by various theoretical openings. As Dominick LaCapra comments: “No genre or discipline owns trauma as a problem or can provide definitive boundaries for it” (Writing History, Writing Trauma 96). For Cathy Caruth, one of the central figures in cultural trauma theory in the early 1990s, trauma is a crisis of narrative and representation, and of truth and history. Trauma theory is also an attempt to trace the different forms of human suffering and our responses to it.
