on the Case Study Genre

The interdisciplinary and transnational character of the case study genre
has proved of enduring interest to all Western societies, particularly in
relation to questions of the sexed self, sexual subjectivity and sexual
This conference will investigate the case study genre and its relationship
to different publics and audiences, from patients to social reformers,
from moral crusaders to literary audiences.
We are interested not only in how case studies were used to communicate
the findings of individual researchers to other members of their academic
disciplines - and beyond that, to broader publics - but also in how in
turn case studies were used by a range of publics and audiences to refute
and dispute academic knowledge.
In particular, we seek papers that engage with the case study as a site of
interdisciplinary negotiations and transnational influences and
transferences, including the ways in which larger historical and
geopolitical forces such as war, migration, translation, and
internationalization shaped the case study genre.
Please submit abstracts to Jana Verhoeven firstname.lastname@example.org by the 13
