CFP: Women Writing War Trauma

Conference: NeMLA 2014 Convention
Place: Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, United States
Date: April 3-6, 2014
Submission deadline for abstracts: September 30, 2013

Description: »This panel seeks to investigate how gender affects not only the traumatic experience itself, but also the narration of traumatic experience, by women writing about war. The “writing” may take the form of memoir, fiction, poetry, film, or other, more experimental modes of narration, such as blogging. The goal of this panel is to bring together a diverse range of material and perspectives that will move the discussion of gender and trauma beyond a simple comparison of men’s and women’s trauma, and into the gendered politics of writing itself.«
