THE WAR LITERATURE: MAPPING THE UNHEARD VOICES ACROSS THE GLOBE

Concept Note:

I am the enemy you killed, my friend.

I knew you in this dark: for so you frowned

Yesterday through me as you jabbed and killed.

I parried; but my hands were loath and cold.

Let us sleep now. . . (Wilfred Owen: Strange Meeting)

Transformations: journal of media, culture and technology
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 31, 2018

This issue of Transformations calls for papers as provocations into the human-nature relation through the questioning power of the moving image. In particular, we are looking for contributions that focus on the function of the moving image as a material artefact or visual object within an ecological milieu or image-world, where the human relation to nature is rendered open-to-question. Thinking about the moving image extends to many formats, including panoramas, dioramas, video art installations, online digital displays, scientific data schematisation and other visual apparatuses, as well as narrative and non-narrative film and cinematic projection.

“I think our ligands are stories.” - Rita Charon

In the face of complex academic, social, and political issues emerging in the 21st century, humanities
scholarship has embraced interdisciplinarity as a means of addressing such issues. One field which has
emerged from this is the “Medical and Health Humanities,” a wide-ranging body of critical thought that
examines the intersection of various forms of healthcare and medicine with human and animal interests
and engages with theoretical, pedagogical, professional, and therapeutic inquiries.
