C all for papers eflections on Violence ‐ Hispanic Studies Third Annual Graduate Conference

Deadline: February 4, 2013

Reflections on Violence ‐ Hispanic Studies Third Annual Graduate Conference, March 22nd ‐ March 23rd

Probably the biggest challenge of society today, is to find mechanisms to disarticulate the various representations and manifestations of violence that are emerging as a common part of our increasingly globalized and differentiated world. “Reflections on Violence” encourages participants to consider literature, film, the plastic arts, performance, cultural and political thought, philosophy, sociology, linguistics, psychology, anthropology, and so forth, as contexts where violence is reframed. We welcome submissions from all disciplinary and professional backgrounds to present papers in English and/or Spanish. Panels are encouraged.

Possible themes and topics include, but are not limited to:
-Political violence
-Social violence
-Cinematographic adaptation
-Sexual violence
-War on drugs
-Cultural violence
-Race issues
-Spanglish/code switching
-Literary/cinematographic genres

Keynote Speaker: Mario Mendoza, probably the most important Colombian writer from his generation. Winner of the Biblioteca Breve award with Satanás, turned into a movie by Andrés Baiz.

SUBMISSIONS Please send tentative title, abstract (300 word maximum), and CV to mariapoisa@neo.tamu.edu by February 4. For more information go to http://hisp.tamu.edu/activities.html.
