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.”«

Date: June 19-20, 2014
Submission deadline for abstracts: January 31, 2014
Description:
»Topics relevant to this conference may include, but are by no means limited to, the following issues:
1. How have different disciplines examined and explained acts of violence?
2. Is it possible to identify specific cultures of violence in the pre-war era as well as during the war itself?
3. What was the impact of situational and intentional factors on killing and brutalisation?
4. To discuss how we can explain atrocities - as actions motivated by belief, as an unexpectedly horrifying consequence of obeying orders or as matter-of-fact acts of killing.
5. To compare the traumatising effect of violence with pleasure, excitement or gratification in carrying out acts of violence.«
