CFP: Experiencing Prison

Conference: Experiencing Prison: 8th Global Conference
Place: Lisbon, Portugal
Date: April 4-6, 2017
Submission deadline for abstracts: October 28, 2016
Description: »The upcoming 8th Global Conference will be primarily focused on the prisoner and the impact imprisonment itself and the many shortcomings and civil rights violations that often accompany it have on the lives of the inmates. Living in a total institution can be profoundly traumatic in itself and doing so against one’s will, as a form of punishment is enough to generate powerful, specific emotions and experiences. But when faced with threats to one’s life, health or wellbeing because of issues such as prison overpopulation, physical and sexual violence, abuse of power by prison staff and management, prison riots and gang wars etc., loss of freedom becomes only one part of a more complex and darker story.«

CFP: Sexual Violence

Conference: Sexual Violence: 1st Global Meeting
Place: Lisbon, Portugal
Date: April 1-3, 2017
Submission deadline for abstracts: October 28, 2016
Description: »This conference has a global focus; it aims to facilitate dialogue and spark innovative collaborations and discussions at the international level. We welcome papers from all disciplines, professions and vocations, going beyond the academic world and bringing together researchers, community, and professionals engaged in work on Sexual Violence. We welcome traditional papers, panels and workshop proposals, as well as other forms of presentation platforms (art, poetry, posters, video submissions, etc.) favoured outside academia, given the interdisciplinary nature of the conference, recognising that different groups express themselves in various formats and mediums.«

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.«

CFP: War, Trauma, and Healing

Conference: Congress for Humanities and Social Sciences
Place: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Date: May 27 - June 2, 2017
Submission deadline for abstracts: November 18, 2016
Description: »The centenary of the battle of Vimy Ridge in World War I and the sesquicentennial of Canadian Confederation are significant historical events in 2017, providing an opportunity to reflect critically upon the daily reality of war in an ever-shrinking world. In the light of these anniversaries, this panel welcomes papers on the image, idea, and reality of war, the trauma it produces, and the possibility of healing, specifically as enacted through creative textual expression in multiple forms and genres. Papers could address the idea, metaphor, and reality of war as engaged by texts: its intersection of spiritual and physical, of idealized principle and economic and political imperatives; the meaning and impact of orchestrated violence; or different forms of and purposes for warfare, both literal and metaphorical, physical, moral, and spiritual. They could focus on war-related trauma and responses to it through narrative fiction, poetry, performance, or cross-media genres, considering how and whether writing and text operate as emotional, spiritual, moral agents in the process of healing, in either a communal or an individual context. They can consider the role of religious faith in this context, as represented, interrogated, explored, or expressed through the texts under consideration, in which the material and the spiritual meet in textual and emotional terms. Papers on Canadian literature are welcome, but the panel encourages a trans-national perspective if possible.«
