The Crisis of the Confined a: A Conference in Romance Studies / Abstract Deadline 12/1/10

updated: 
Friday, October 22, 2010 - 2:10am
University of California, Berkeley

The Crisis of the Confined Body is a graduate student conference that will join five Romance languages (Catalan, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish), fostering a comparative approach to studies of the body in confinement, isolation and extraction. The conference will offer critical examinations of the body and its contingent relationship to spatial, temporal, cultural and/or linguistic parameters. A theme that lends itself to multiple fields, The Crisis of the Confined Body will promote interdisciplinary collaborations between the humanities, visual arts, and sciences, engaging points of overlap as well as lines of divergence. We encourage presentations that engage a comparative and/or interdisciplinary approach.
