This conference is part of the collaborative project "La littérature dans la peau" organized by the Université Paris 8 and the Université Polytechnique Hauts de France, Valenciennes.
The aim of the project is to foster scholarly exchanges and explore how literature and tattooing practices intersect via the reproduction on the skin of texts, quotes, illustrations, portraits of authors or characters, autographs, ornamental symbols and signs.
How does fiction address the legality of tattoos?
How does it represent tattooed characters on the wrong side of the law?
How do tattoos celebrate the law?

In Numbered Lives: Life and Death in Quantum Media, scholar and feminist digital humanities practitioner Jacqueline Wernimont examines recordkeeping technologies used to account for human lives and bodies, beginning as early as the 15th century. The book, in part a robust critical historiography, challenges us to interrogate and engage mindfully with contemporary data issues and methods, and with the ways in which they shape our narratives regarding the value of lives and cultures.

Taking its cue from Lawrence Venuti's work on the scandal of translation, the ways that translations of texts originally produced in other languages carry the power to affront the norms and assumptions of both source and target languages and cultures, this roundtable for the South Atlantic Modern Language Association's conference, which will take place at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront in Jacksonville, FL, 13–15 November 2020, welcomes submissions on either particularly scandalous adaptations or the scandal of adaptation generally.
