CFP: The Human Body and World War II

Conference: The Human Body and World War II: Interdisciplinary conference
Place: University of Oxford, Oxford, United Kingdom
Date: March 23-24, 2018
Submission deadline for abstract: October 1, 2017
Description: »This two-day interdisciplinary conference aims to explore the kinds of bodies that were enlisted, co-opted and represented during the Second World War, on both the battlefield and the various ‘home fronts.’ How did the damage done to the wartime body affect the medical establishment and its practice? In what ways were amputation and prostheses taken up by the culture industry? How did language shape, accommodate, or erase the body during this period? What new relationships were formed between human bodies and machines? We welcome papers that seek to challenge disciplinary and geographic boundaries, and we are particularly receptive to proposals situated within a disability studies framework.«
