CFP: Victim Narratives in Transnational Contexts

Conference: Victim Narratives in Transnational Contexts
Place: University of Innsbruck, Innsbruck, Austria
Date: January 25-27, 2018
Submission deadline for abstracts: May 30, 2017
Description: »The objective of this conference is to identify and analyse conceptualisations of ‘victimhood,’ in par­ti­cular with regard to cultural studies and memory research. It also aims at a critical discussion of vic­tim­hood/victim status in fictional texts (prose, poetry, theatre) as well as in other media (film, photography, etc.). The con­ference invites participants to discuss recent texts (post-1989) that challenge entrenched victim narratives and attempt to transcend the logic of retaliation and atonement without negating or relativising the victims’ suffering. The conference welcomes submissions from a broad range of discip­lines such as film, literary, and cultural studies, and is particularly interested in transnational and trans­cultural aspects.«
