CFP: Texts and Violence

Conference: MadLit 2014 Graduate Conference
Place: University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wisconsin, United States

Date: February 20-22, 2013
Submission deadline for abstracts: December 15, 2013
Description: »While grounded in literary and interpretive studies, the subject of textual violence cannot help but engage fields within the humanities, including history, art history, theater, comparative literature, architecture, and gender studies. In particular, the conference will raise questions about how these fields produce and teach critical thought, narratives, objects, bodies, and experience. To this end, we hope this conference will invite a discussion of how research in the humanities interprets, responds to, and even constructs ideas of “texts” and “violence.”«
