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

Description: »This panel seeks papers on the ways that violence is represented in literature, theatre, or film from WWII to the present. How do contemporary artists stage or visualize violence, and does such staging encourage or discourage violence? How are bodies and subjects construed as vulnerable? What ethical problems are raised in staging violence? Do artists imagine possibilities for transformation and healing? I am especially interested in studies of gender-based violence.«
