Rewriting the Body (grad) (2/16/07; disjunctions, 4/6/07-4/7/07)

This call for papers is a proposed panel to be held at (dis)junctions, the
University of California, Riverside's 14th Annual Humanities Conference,
April 6-7, 2007. In keeping with this year's theme, "Malapropriation
Nation," this panel attempts to explore how the body as cultural text is
rewritten through acts of (re)appropriation, misappropriation, passing,
mimicry, and resignification.

Papers from all periods and areas are welcome. Suggested topics include

Juridical bodies
Virtual bodies
Historical, narrative, and/or developmental bodies
Racialized, gendered, and/or sexed bodies
Monstrous and/or illegible bodies
Confessional bodies
Transgender and/or transsexual bodies
(Non)Canonical bodies
Material bodies
Supernatural, phantasmal, and/or illusory bodies
Pathologized, medicalized, criminalized, and/or abject bodies
'Primitive' and/or postmodern bodies
Uncontrollable and/or excessive bodies
Fetishized and/or idealized bodies
Fragmented bodies and/or bodies without organs
Performative bodies, broadly conceived
Bodies as ontology
Bodies under (de)/(re)construction
