CFP: Histories of Violence: War and Memory

Conference: Histories of Violence symposium
Place: Northwestern University, Evanston
Date: May 10, 2013
Submission deadline: November 28, 2012

Description: »This symposium explores Histories of Violence through the theme of War and Memory. Specifically, we seek papers that address the long and broad aftermaths of war, including those that mobilize the figures of veterans, refugees, colonial subjects, and sex workers. We are interested in the transnational circulation of violence, weapons, tactics, and symbols, as well as the relationship between violence and power both in the United States and in transnational context. How do people remember violent experience, and what are the social costs of such memories? What legacies of American violence continue to shape identity, projects of empire, and political discourse? Can we read the relationship between state and interpersonal violence in memory?«
