1. CFP: Disability and the Emotions (Part 2), Liverpool Hope

    Posted on May 25th, 2017 by Hannah Tweed

    Disability and the Emotions: Part 2 of the seminar series hosted by the CCDS at Liverpool Hope University

    No crying in disability studies, that was the rule set by Joseph Shapiro’s No Pity in 1993, only to be broken a few years later by Elizabeth J. Donaldson and Catherine Prendergast at the 2000 MLA conference. In the decade that followed there was a proliferation of work on emotion, especially affect, which culminated in Donaldson and Prendergast’s Representing Disability and Emotion, a themed issue of JLCDS published in 2011. Since then the CCDS has engaged with the subject of emotion recurrently. Most recently, Ria Cheyne, Joanne Heeney, Margaret Price, Emma Sheppard, Chris Foss, and Michael Rembis all gave excellent seminars in the Disability and the Emotions series.

    If you would like to present a paper in this seminar series please send a proposal on or before July 16, 2017. The proposal should consist of a summary of your presentation (200 words max) and a biographical note (100 words max). If your proposal is accepted you will be invited to give a 45 minute presentation in the 2nd part of the seminar series (2017-2018). Proposals should be sent to: ccds@hope.ac.uk

  2. Disability Studies: Austerity and Precariousness Seminar Series Inaugural Colloquium, Dundee

    Posted on May 25th, 2017 by Hannah Tweed

    Date: 12-3.15pm, 6th June 2017

    Location: Dalhousie Building 2S14, University of Dundee

    You are invited to: Disability Studies: Austerity and Precariousness Seminar Series Inaugural Colloquium

    Sponsored by ‘(Dis)places: Embodiment and community in critical and creative motion research group’, School of Education & Social Work, University of Dundee

    Disability studies is a scholarly movement that engages with interdisciplinary insights into the construction(s) of disability and ableist-normativity and what these dividing practices means for social policy, social care, legal regimes and biopolitics more generally. Precariousness ‘implies living socially, that is, the fact that one’s life is always in some sense in the hands of the other. It implies exposure both to those we know and to those we do not know; a dependency on people we know or know not at all’ (Butler, 2009, 14).

    Precariousness can be a significant measure of the efficacy of social policy and law. This seminar series will bring together researchers whose work focuses on the marginal, the aberrant, disabled people, displaced persons and the trans/categorically ‘othered’ to explore austerus, those ‘dry, harsh and sour’ landscapes of thinking about difference, variability and the increasing (re)turn to classifying populations creating inside and outwith zones of belonging and exclusion.

    RSVP through our Eventbrite page.

    (Dis)places: Embodiment and community in critical and creative motion

    (Dis)places: is a new grouping that goes by a name that is emblematic of its intended flexibility, critically and creative, without us taking ourselves too seriously. The ‘dis’ element, reflects, firstly, the School’s historical and continuing strengths in disability-related research – broadly defined. Bracketing it alongside ‘places’ draws attention to our interest in marginal spaces – physical, political, educational, cultural, economic, etc. – in which disabled people, as well as other groups and communities, find themselves. (Dis)places: Embodiment and community in critical and creative motion highlights the broad disciplinary base of our group – humanities, theology, social sciences (pure and applied), as well as making links with creative arts.


    12.00 Welcome/Chair by Dr Fiona Kumari Campbell (seminar coordinator, Co-convenor Displaces)

    12.15 Professor Marianne Hirschberg

    1.45 Dr Maria Norstedt

    2.15 Dr Elisabet Apelmo

  3. CFP: ‘Dementia Lab 2017 – stories from design and research’, Dormund, Germany

    Posted on May 25th, 2017 by Hannah Tweed

    Date: 6th – 7th September 2017 (Dortmund, Germany)

    The theme for this year’s Dementia Lab is sharing the underlying questions that designers, researchers and educators face in their design process for and together with people with dementia.

    These questions vary from such practical challenges as recruiting persons with dementia to finding funding before a project begins or failing to have a method work as expected. Designers may struggle to find a way of communicating with people with dementia when words fail or have a hard time coping with the stress of dealing with people who are in constant mental and physical decline. Finally, once a design is made, designers and researchers often encounter resistance to the first iterations of the things designed or have difficulty integrating the designs into the routines of daily life and care.

    This second edition of the Dementia Lab event, wishes to support the sharing of these successes and failures by inviting contributions from designers and researchers who are designing for and together with persons with dementia.

    The event program is open for traditional contributions such as papers and workshop proposals. Additionally, there is the possibility to share experiences through stories as well as showcase the designs made for persons with dementia. The poster exhibition gives the opportunity to discuss preliminary ideas or share an experience in a poster format. Selected submissions will be published in the event proceedings.

    Deadline for submission: 12th June 2-17

    Notification of acceptance: beginning of July

    Dementia Lab event: 6th – 7th September 2017

    As the event is supported by the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the Fochhochschule Dortmund, the cost to attend is free. However, no more than 50 participants can attend. We have a travel support for students of up to 250 euro.

  4. CFP: ‘The Forgotten Other: Disability Studies and the Classical Body’, London

    Posted on April 25th, 2017 by Hannah Tweed

    CFP: The Forgotten Other: Disability Studies and the Classical Body

    Location: Kings College London

    Date: 18th–19th June 2018

    Deadline: 31st July 2017


    • Ellen Adams (Lecturer in Classical Art and Archaeology, Kings College London)
    • Emma-Jayne Graham (Senior Lecturer in Classical Studies, The Open University)

    The influence of the classical bodily ideal on Western notions of beauty has been vast. But what of the broken body, as so many classical marble sculptures have become? While philosophical explorations of the body and the senses may reference the ancient world as a starting point, there is generally little engagement with the sensory body that is impaired or progressively failing. If we are interested in the body, past or present, experienced or represented, we must look to what happens when it ‘breaks’ – the challenges posed and met, the hurdles overcome or un-surmounted, and the remarkable strategies adopted to mitigate any disabling effects of physical and sensory impairments – by both individuals and their societies. Studying the disabled in the ancient past has yet to engage with Disability Studies in a way comparable with other areas of identity politics, such as gender, sexuality and race. Classics, and its cognate disciplines, has nevertheless played a role in shaping the modern concepts of impairment and disability that form the basis of contemporary Disability Studies, and this relationship deserves further exploration.

    This conference seeks to explore shared ground by examining what modern debates concerning impairments and disabilities can add to our understanding of ancient bodies and identities. It will question why ‘non-normative’ bodies are so rarely brought into the mix by classicists, historians and archaeologists studying ancient social and cultural contexts, and how doing so can offer suggestive new ways of understanding the complex relationship between bodies, identities and divergent experiences of the world.

    We invite papers which explore these issues from the standpoint of both Classical Studies and Disability Studies (of all periods). Plenty of time will be dedicated to discussion and, where possible, the organisers hope to ‘pair up’ speakers from different disciplinary backgrounds in order to encourage greater reflection on the synergies and differences of each approach. Free-standing papers will also be welcomed. Topics might include, but are not limited to:

    • The ableism inherent in the Humanities
    • Reference to the classical world and ancient thinkers in Disability Studies
    • ‘Fixing’ impairments (including aids)
    • The tension between ‘disabled’ and ‘unable’
    • The terminology of disabilities
    • Moving beyond etic objectification to the emic voice of the (impaired) person
    • The application of social, medical and interactional models to the classical world
    • Other approaches to treating disabilities (e.g. ritual)
    • The phenomenology of impairment, including movement and kinaesthesia
    • Sensory impairment and embodied experience
    • The disabled ‘beautiful body’ and the beautiful disabled body
    • Experiences of and attitudes towards progressive disabilities and sensory impairments.

    Confirmed speakers include: Patty Baker, Eleanor Betts, Lennard Davis, Jane Draycott, Edith Hall, Brian Hurwitz, Helen King, Christian Laes, Michiel Meeusen, Georgia Petridou, Tom Shakespeare, Michael Squire, Hannah Thompson.

    Papers should be 20 minutes in length and abstracts of approximately 200-300 words should be submitted to either Ellen Adams (Ellen.Adams@kcl.ac.uk) or Emma-Jayne Graham (Emma-jayne.graham@open.ac.uk) by 31st July 2017. Successful contributions may be considered for publication in a conference volume. Funding may be available to support travel and accommodation for speakers where necessary.

  5. CFP: Different Bodies: (Self-)Representation, Disability, and the Media, London

    Posted on April 24th, 2017 by Hannah Tweed

    CFP: Different Bodies: (Self-)Representation, Disability, and the Media

    Location: Regent Campus, 309 Regent Street, University of Westminster, London

    Date: 9am-6pm, 23rd June 2017

    Deadline: 28th April 2017

    This one-day conference seeks to explore representations of the body as strange, shameful, wrong, impaired, wounded, scarred, disabled, lacking, different or ‘other’ in contemporary media.

    The advent of digital media has underlined the importance of visual culture and our curiosity in representations of the body to form opinions about ourselves and others. Media portrayals of bodies can affect our lives because media are one of the primary agents of socialization (Moore and Kosut, 2010). Bodies we see in newspapers, on television and in our social media feeds are often made to appear perfect in order to conform to racialized and heteronormative ideals of what it means to be beautiful and normal in contemporary capitalist societies. Presentations of the body that are white, young, slim and productive have been critiqued from different fields in academia such as feminism, queer theory, disability studies, critical theory and postcolonial studies.

    The digital media landscape is posing new challenges to the study of body representation. The Internet and social media in particular have led to an increased representation and engagement with the body through practices such as selfies, webcamming, blogging, vlogging and so on. While digital media may contribute to an empowerment of excluded and silenced bodies, they may equally open up spaces of discrimination, threats, hatred, trolling and silencing online, as the #gamergate controversy or author Lizzie Velásquez’ self-presentation on social media have recently illustrated.

    A critical approach to representations of bodies and disability is therefore essential as a means of change (Bolt, 2014). This conference aims to develop a new understanding of disability and the media in the 21st century by establishing a dialogue between different scholars on the theme of body representations. In particular, we seek to formulate new questions to comprehend how the tension between non-digital and digital media is creating spaces for new ways of framing disabled bodies. How are new narratives being developed to recount diversity? What is their function? What is the relationship between representation of the body in news outlets and self-representation on social media? What are the epistemological opportunities the media could embrace in order to promote equality, health literacy and ultimately, a more comprehensive understanding of what it means to be human?

    We encourage interdisciplinary paper presentations of 15 minutes that aim to explore how narratives and images of other bodies are constructed in the media and what their aesthetic, social, cultural, epistemological and political implications are.


    Papers may draw on media and communication studies, as well as queer theory, disability studies, postcolonial studies, feminist theory, critical theory, psychoanalysis, psychosocial studies, literature, history, visual studies, anthropology, health communication, religious studies, medicine and philosophy.

    Possible themes include but are not limited to:

    • Researching bodies and the media: frameworks and methodologies
    • Journalism and practices of othering the body
    • The mediated body as spectacle
    • Celebrity bodies and the spectacles of transformation
    • The abject body
    • Stigma and the body
    • De-colonizing and de-westernising the mediated body
    • Neoliberalism, policy and austerity politics
    • (Dis)Empowerments of the disabled body
    • The objectification of the disabled body in the media
    • Contemporary coverage of disability in print/online/television/radio
    • Reality television and the body
    • Auto-ethnographic accounts of the body in / through digital media
    • The medicalised body in the media
    • Representing wounds and scars
    • Affective labour of bodies
    • The body and trauma

    This conference is part of the research project ‘Facial Disfigurement in the UK Media: From Print to Online’, led by Dr Diana Garrisi (University of Westminster) and Dr Jacob Johanssen (University of Westminster), which is financed through the University of Westminster Strategic Research Fund.

    Invited speakers include Henrietta Spalding, Head of Advocacy at the UK charity Changing Faces.

    How to submit papers

    Please send in abstracts of no longer than 500 words to both Jacob Johanssen (j.johanssen@westminster.ac.uk) and Diana Garrisi (d.garrisi2@westminster.ac.uk) by 28th April 2017.

    Conference attendance will be free and registration will open in late spring.

    We seek to provide an open and inclusive space for everyone.

  6. CFP: Care and Machines, Manchester

    Posted on April 24th, 2017 by Hannah Tweed

    CFP: Care and Machines: an interdisciplinary conference on caring relationships with technologies 

    Location: University of Manchester

    Date: 20th – 21st October 2017

    Deadline: 1st June 2017

    The event will provide researchers from a variety of fields with the opportunity to come together and to discuss and reflect upon what is meant by ‘care’ in a world characterised by increasingly intimate relationships with machines (of all shapes and sizes).

    The conference will feature keynote presentations from Prof Noel Sharkey (University of Sheffield; Robot Wars);  Prof Jeanette Pols (University of Amsterdam); Dr Kate Devlin (Goldsmiths University, London); Dr Aimee van Wynsberghe (University of Twente); and Nigel Ackland (public speaker on bionics and cyborgs). These discussions will explore care in contexts ranging from healthcare and mobile technologies, to prosthetics and dis/ability, to machines as companions, and sexual tools and partners. Researchers are invited to propose papers on these themes and other aspects of care to be presented at the conference.

    In order to explore critically the meaning, significance, and future of care and machines, contributors from a range of disciplines are invited to propose papers on a variety of topics. As an indicative guide, topics and questions that might be explored include, but are not limited to, the following:

    Methodological issues

    • What is ‘care’ in relation to other concepts such as wellbeing, trust, or altruism?
    • What do these reveal about our understandings of care and machines?
    • How can we discern or measure ‘care’ in a technological context?
    • What insights from the philosophy of technology can be applied, developed, or critiqued?

    Ethical issues

    • Do humans have a duty of care to one another?
    • Can/should this be technologically mediated?
    • Do humans have a duty of care to nonhumans, including machines and animals?
    • How do practices of care interact care and machines an interdisciplinary conference on caring relationships with technologies between different nonhumans, i.e. can/should machines care for nature or animals?
    • What, if any, are the reciprocal demands on participants – human and machine – in caring relationships?

    Practices in contexts

    • What specific questions are raised by different examples of care and machines? (I.e. mobile devices and ubiquitous communication/data mining; companion robots and projection of emotion/replacement of relationships with other humans; machines in medicine and trust/prompting of new moral dilemmas such as switching off life machines; etc.)

    Disciplines, traditions and receptions

    • How do historical relationships influence our present and future attitudes to care in technological contexts?
    • How do depictions of technologies in fiction influence our attitudes to care and machines?
    • What religious attitudes would support or challenge practices of care with machines?

    Please submit an abstract of no more than 300 words, together with a short author bio (of approximately 100 words), to scott.midson@manchester.ac.uk. The closing date for proposals is 1st June 2017, and authors will be notified of decisions by 1st July. Prospective presenters should be aware of the diverse audience of this conference, and ensure that their papers are accessible to researchers from other fields and disciplines. This should be reflected in abstracts and proposals. This conference is part of the Living with and Loving Machines project at the Lincoln Theological Institute, The University of Manchester.

  9. CFP: Special Issue of Modernist Fiction Studies, ‘Modernist Fictions of Disability’

    Posted on April 10th, 2017 by Hannah Tweed

    Guest Editor: Maren Linett
    Deadline for Submissions: 1 December 2017

    In 2012, then-president of the Modern Language Association Michael Bérubé described disability studies not as an emerging field, but an “emerged” one. Disability studies revises the medicalized and individualized understanding of disability, an understanding that places it outside of culture and discourse. It locates disability instead in the social and political relations among bodies and minds understood as impaired, bodies and minds granted the cultural capital of normalcy, and the built and social environment. Because it explores the embeddedness of bodies and minds within cultures, this growing and vibrant field has an important role in literary studies.

    This special issue of MFS aims to place disability studies in conversation with modernist studies. Some questions essays might consider are the following: what role does disability play in a particular modernist narrative? How does the presence of disability affect the aesthetic or political trajectory of the fiction? How do modernism’s famously difficult formal experiments complicate current modes of reading disability such as David Mitchell and Sharon Snyder’s “narrative prosthesis” or Ato Quayson’s “aesthetic nervousness”? How did the experience of World War I alter representations of disability in fiction? How do the norms that create disability function in narratives without disabled characters? We seek essays that consider the ways disability permeates modernist fiction, broadly conceived, and are especially interested in essays that take intersectional approaches.

    Essays should be 7,000-8,500 words, including all quotations and bibliographic references and should follow the MLA Style Manual 7th edition for internal citation and works cited. Please submit your essay via the online submission form at the following web address: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/mfs. Queries should be directed to Maren Linett at mlinett@purdue.edu.

  10. CFP: Stories of Illness / Disability in Literature and Comics: Intersections of the Medical, the Personal, and the Cultural (Berlin)

    Posted on April 10th, 2017 by Hannah Tweed

    CFP: Stories of Illness / Disability in Literature and Comics: Intersections of the Medical, the Personal, and the Cultural

    Date: 27th – 28th October 2017

    Location: Berlin, Germany

    Keynote speaker: Leigh Gilmore (Wellesley College), Author of “The Limits of Autobiography: Trauma and Testimony” (2001) and “Tainted Witness: Why we doubt what women say about their lives” (2017)

    Deadline: 31st May 2017

    This two-day academic conference examines the ways in which knowledge and experience of illness and disability circulate within the realms of medicine, art, the personal and the cultural. We invite papers that address this question from a variety of different perspectives, including literary scholarship, comics studies, media studies, disability studies, and health humanities/ sociology/ geography.

    To launch this conference, there will be an exhibit of comics dealing with medicine, illness/ disability, and caregiving, presented in the permanent pathological collection of the Berlin Museum of Medical History at the Charité established by Rudolf Virchow (http://www.bmm-charite.de/en/museum/our-museum.html). Our intent is to juxtapose the museum’s anonymous anatomical specimens with situated personal works of comic art.

    The exhibition, which will run for three months, opens Thursday, October 26, 2017 with talks by two of the central figures of the graphic medicine movement: MK Czerwiec, nurse and author of the comic “Taking Turns. Stories from HIV/AIDS Care Unit 371” (2017), and Ian Williams, physician and author of the comic “The Bad Doctor. The Troubled Life and Times of Dr. Iwan James“ (2015) (see www.graphicmedicine.org<http://www.graphicmedicine.org>).

    For the conference that follows, we invite as yet unpublished papers on comics and/ or literary texts (both fictional and auto­biographical) addressing one (or more) of the following questions:

    Shared Spaces: The Transformative Relations between Literature/ Comics and Medicine/ Science
    How do scientific/ medical professionals use comics and/ or literature to engage the public and impart new research or public health measures? How do narrative and graphic illness stories influence medical and scientific concepts of health and disease? How do these diverse spaces of experience and knowledge interact with each other?

    Inner Landscapes: The Aesthetics of Representing the Lived Experience of Illness

    What aesthetic strategies do literary works and comics use to reveal the inner perspective of living with illness/ disability/ medical treatment? How do narratives represent emotional situations of invisible suffering, such as psychic disorders, trauma, involuntary memories and flash­backs, but also autoimmune diseases or cancer? Literature has devel­oped aesthetic techniques such as inner monologue, stream of consciousness, and metaphors; do comics employ comparable or different aesthetic strategies?

    Timelines, Time Spirals, Time Vectors: Communicating Acute Illness, Chronic Disease, and Terminal Illness

    In On Being Ill, Virginia Woolf characterizes periods of illness as having a time of their own, ‘slowing down’ life, revealing humans’ finiteness and inspiring unprece­dented creativity. How do other literary and graphic illness narratives reflect the percep­tion of time during illness? How is the disruption of acute illness or the caesura brought on by a new diagnosis represented? Do comics and literature employ different means of representing life with a chronic con­dition?

    Confessing, Surviving, Normalizing: Constructing the Self in Illness Narratives

    What kind of subject is produced in contemporary illness narratives that rely on the confessional mode? As Michel Foucault has argued, such a mode is double-edged: it presumes a powerful speaking subject who is simultaneously subjected to the very institutions s/he addresses, ranging from healthcare to patient support groups and including the audiences of illness narratives. What kind of identity is enabled or foreclosed by concepts such as ‘sur­vivorship’? What avatars are created in illness comics – do they differ from protag­onists in written texts? Do literature and comics take part in or go beyond a process of normalization that is entailed in the confessional mode and the term ‘compliant patient’?

    The Politics of Storying Illness: Going beyond the Individual

    Can illness narratives give voice to the experience of entire communities or comment on national healthcare systems (and their potential flaws)? Are there texts and comics that offer alternatives to narratives that focus on a single protagonist – if so, how do they do it? To what extent are illness narratives in literature and comics emancipatory and subversive, and to what extent do they tie into contemporary endeavors in bio-medical self-management, prophylaxis, and prevention?

    For each panel, we welcome either theoretical reflections on or close readings of literary texts and/ or comics; comparative papers on both artistic media are especially welcome. Accepted participants will receive funding to cover travel and accommodation expenses. Selected papers will be considered for publication in an edited volume on the subject of patho/graphics, i.e. literature and comics on illness/ disability.

    Paper proposals should include a title, a 300-word abstract (max.) for a 20-minute presen­tation, and a short biographical note with institutional affiliation (where appropriate). Abstracts and papers can be in either English or German. Please submit by May 31, 2017, to: pathographics@fsgs.fu-berlin.de.
