CFP: Echoes of trauma: exploring the intersections of trauma & culture

21st Annual Mardi Gras Conference. Louisiana State University, March 3-4, 2011.

"Remembering, rethinking, reworking, and reimagining are just a few of the ways in which authors and artists, historians and critics, audiences and citizens have explored their own traumatic experiences, as well as the traumatic events that continue to impact larger communities. Stemming from its basis in psychoanalysis, trauma studies and trauma theory have opened up unique pathways in literature, as well as other media, by exploring the stress and shock associated with wounds, be they physical, psychological, emotional, or cultural."
Submission deadline for proposals: December 5, 2010.
