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:
-War on drugs
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.
