We’re excited to learn that the call for papers for the 2017 VariAbilities conference has been released. The conference is convened by Professor Chris Mounsey, who is a member of the Effaced project’s advisory committee.
Quoting from the conference poster:
VariAbilities III: The Same Only Different?
Senate House, University of London.
Malet Street, London, WC1E, England
Tuesday and Wednesday 6 & 7th June 2017
In the third iteration of the Variabilities Series, we will take stock of the academic work done on the “body” in “history”. When we study the “Body” should we restrict ourselves to impaired bodies or make comparisons with sports bodies? Or should a conference discussing the body entertain papers on both impaired and sports bodies? When we consider “history” we must ask ourselves when did history begin, and has it ended?
Variabilities III is casting its nets as widely as possible, with no methodological assumptions, beginning or end dates, with as wide a scope for dialogue as possible. Come and tell us what the “body” in “history” means to you.
For accessibility purposes we welcome Skype Presentations
