    Wounded Bodies – Wounded Minds:



    Intersections of Memory and Identity

    INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
    to be held in Iasi, Romania

    6 - 10 April 2011
    Call for Papers

    Intersections of Body and Mind have been revisited lately in a variety of discourses. Both the body and the mind can be seen as carriers of cultural codes, markers of identity and traces of diverse historical and theoretical contexts.
    This intriguing interconnection has been approached in philosophy and aesthetic theory, anthropology, sociology and history, literature and psychoanalysis, gender studies, semiotics, performance studies, visual arts, the media, and others. Currently, burgeoning intercultural encounters have moved this nexus as a problem into new focus.
    This conference aims to reinvestigate issues such as:

    - representations of traumatic experiences inflicted through history, culture, and politics on the body and the mind;

    - cultural memory vs. cultural amnesia;

    - reworking the past: truth and reconciliation in cultures in distress;

    - pain: the limits of language and intersubjective communication;

    - violence, wounds, and healing.
    Proposals for individual papers may address the above topics; further panel suggestions are also welcome.

    Deadline for submitting proposals: 1st of September, 2010. 200-250-word proposals should be submitted to the conference email address: body_mind_conference@yahoo.com ,
    or to any of organisers at:

    • odymir@uaic.ro (Prof. Dr. Odette Blumenfeld),

    • Monika.Reif-Huelser@uni-konstanz.de (Herder Prof. Dr. Monika Reif-Huelser),

    • tcvera@yahoo.com (Dr. Veronica Popescu),

    • sorinachiper@gmail.com (Lect. Sorina Chiper).


    Notification of proposal acceptance: 30th of September, 2010.

    A selection of presented papers will be published in the conference volume.
