Conference: The Violence Project: 13th Global Meeting

Submission deadline for abstracts: January 23, 2015
Description: »This conference is one of a continuing series that aims to bring together people from a wide range of disciplines to focus on Violence. Our intention is to contribute to the body of thought which seeks to understand the nature and causes of this endemic feature of society. Such a complex phenomenon has many faces, a multitude of contexts (real or imagined), and many possible explanations in relation to causation and to the role Violence has played and still plays in societies all over the world and at every stage of development. The scale of Violence is vast, ranging from genocide, systematised torture and extermination through to the individual dispute in the family or the playground. Perpetrators may be states, political or religious factions within states, military groups, state or private institutions, communities, gangs, families or individuals. The range of possible victims is equally diverse, ranging from the self to other individuals, families, racial, religious or ethnic groups, societal institutions, business corporations, groups within societies, states, and nations.«

CFP: Violence and the American Imagination

Conference: Violence and the American Imagination
Place: Loughborough, United Kingdom
Date: July 22-23, 2015
Submission deadline for abstracts: February 27, 2015
Description: »‘Violence is as American as cherry pie’, as Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin (H. Rap Brown), the Black Panther activist, famously stated in the 1960s. If ubiquitous in America, however, violence has also proved polysemic, highly mutable in its occurrences, meanings, and effects from the colonial era to the present. The aim of this interdisciplinary conference will be to explore and evaluate violence in the American imagination, considering its multiple, contested significances in a very wide range of discourses and practices that include literature, drama, film, the visual arts, music, philosophical and religious writings, and historical, political and military representations.«

CFP: Gender, Memory and Genocide

Conference: Gender, Memory and Genocide. An International Conference Marking 100 Years Since the Armenian Genocide
Place: Berlin, Germany
Date: June 4-6, 2015
Submission deadline for abstracts: November 30, 2014
Description: »The history of genocide and its aftermath cannot be understood without taking gender into account. As research on the history of the Holocaust and other genocides has demonstrated, genocidal violence has different but related effects on men and women, on gender relations and on gender hierarchies. Its processes have imposed new meanings on biological differences, femininity and masculinity, and on sexuality. Post-genocidal periods have witnessed the reconstitution of gender relations and the gendering of memory. Histories and memories of genocide are deeply gendered, both in their content and their silences.«
