CFP: Writing and dramatising the body

Conference: Writing and dramatising the body: violence, discordance and reconfiguration in English-language literature and drama
Place: Charles de Gaulle University, Lille, France
Date: March 22-23, 2013
Submission deadline: January 12, 2012

Description: »Aside from the specificities which might distinguish fiction, drama and poetry, the question of genre/gender comes to the fore in the emphasis laid on an eroticised, sexualised, gendered body, which violence prods with particular force: the political and aesthetic issues at stake in the construction and representation of the gendered body are therefore also of chief interest.
These angles of approach are, of course, non-exhaustive and we would welcome papers dealing with these and other issues.«
