CFP: Torture

Conference: Torture: 2nd Global Conference
Place: Lisbon, Portugal
Date: April 1-3, 2017
Submission deadline for abstracts: October 28, 2016
Description:
»While papers dealing with state torture are very welcome, we would also particularly encourage papers dealing with non-state torture. This may include, but is not limited to, torture – contemporary or historical – by religious institutions, communities, or armed groups, as well as non-state actors involved in state torture. Papers touching on parallels, differences, or connections between state and non-state torture are highly welcome as well.
Proposals are invited for presentations, workshops, panels, interactive round tables, performances, readings, screenings, or installations concerning the effects of torture on its survivors throughout history and in contemporary societies, from liberal democracies to totalitarian states.«
