The symposium seeks to address the ambiguities of and tensions among perceptions at the cusp of internal (subjective) and external (social, cultural, political) 'gazes'. What the individual experiences, at either end of the consultation room, is a complex interlacing of personal vicissitudes, global structures, and community practices: a prismatic network in which 'care' and 'violence' are reflected and refracted in a variety of oftentimes overlapping and divergent interpretative modes.
Organized by Clio Nicastro and Marta-Laura Cenedese
The symposium is co-funded by the ICI Berlin, the VolkswagenStiftung, the Centre Marc Bloch, and the Nordic Summer University.
Deadline for abstracts: 10 Dec 2021
