The Cultural, Social and Political Thought program at the University of Victoria, British Columbia, is pleased to announce our annual graduate student conference to be held from May 22 to May 24, 2020. We situate our conference on the traditional territories of the Songhees, Esquimalt and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples, whose relationships to the land continue to this day. We invite proposals for research papers, participatory projects, and artworks that address this year’s theme: the alterity of affliction. This conference seeks to facilitate an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary discussion about the limitations and new horizons of discourse on pain. How do we come to know and recognize pain in the other? In the self? And, how might we reconstruct what is lost after pain?
Potential themes and topics may include (but not limited to):
⮚ Literary, aesthetic and semiotic representations of pain and their challenges ⮚ Archives of hurt (e.g., Indigenous responses to the TRC, Abu Ghraib, Middle Passage, Witch Hunts)
⮚ Wounded attachments and the nation or community in pain
⮚ The materiality and/or corporeality of the body in pain
⮚ Inter-generational trauma or pain
⮚ Metaphorical limits of pain
⮚ The spectacles, speculations and spectral of injury or pain
⮚ Scenes of subjection and performances of healing
⮚ Regarding the pain of others and the visual fields of pain
⮚ Remaking: what comes after pain?
⮚ Masochism in feminism, queer theory, and post/colonialism
⮚ Disability, debility, and bodily capacities
⮚ Interventions of the medical humanities
⮚ What is pain? and phenomenological approaches
⮚ Animal models of pain and critical animal studies of hurt, affect, and trauma
⮚ Biopolitics, biopower, and posthuman perspectives
⮚ Ecological and environmental harm, or harmful human action
We invite submissions from graduate students from both the Humanities and Social Sciences, including but not limited to indigenous studies, critical black feminism, philosophy, theory, geography, anthropology, sociology, gender studies, cultural studies, literary studies, and history, in addition to visual artists who work within these topics. In light of our theme, we seek to assemble a diverse group of scholars, artists, and activists, in order to foster interdisciplinary discussions through artworks and presentations that are approximately 15 to 18 minutes in length.
Artists can indicate if they also want to give a 15 to 18 minutes talk on their work, though this is not mandatory for participation.
