CFP: The Ruptures of War: A Conference on War, Culture, and Society

Conference: A Graduate Student Conference
Place: Claremont Graduate University, Claremont, California, United States
Date: April 10, 2010
Submission deadline for abstracts: December 14, 2009
Description: »War is the most intense nexus of politics, violence, culture, society, and nature. The fact that it is with us constantly is exemplified by Foucault’s provocative question: "If we look beneath peace, order, wealth, and authority, beneath the calm order of subordinations, beneath the State and State apparatuses, beneath the laws, and so on, will we hear and discover a sort of primitive and permanent war?" This conference is designed as a way to explore the multifarious ways in which war affects cultures and societies. The idea of war is neither constrained by temporality nor discipline, and it is enmeshed in the human condition. War is essentially an organizing principle by which we hope to discuss many diverse topics, which can include but are not limited to: Trauma, Suffering, Gender, The Environment, Memory, Race, Affect, Political Violence, Ideology, Technology, Secrecy, Human Rights, Torture, Justice, Power, Genocide.«
