‘Corpus Historicus’ Conference

Followers might be interested in a conference taking place at the end of this month in Sosnowiec, Poland. The programme for ‘Corpus Historicus: The Body In/Of History‘  looks like a fascinatingly wide-ranging and interdisciplinary feast of body studies across history, and we will be interested to see where the face features. I’ve already spotted Marta Gorgula of the University of Silesia speaking on ‘Forgotten Faces of the Great War: The Wounded Servicemen in Henry Tonks’ Surgical Portraits’ (Marta also appears to have made the very cool conference art, below). The CFP has of course closed, so we will have to hope that there are eager Tweeters in attendance to keep us in the loop.
