Topic: Indebted Bodies: Feeling the Effects of Economics, Obligation, and Exchange
By definition, to be indebted is to owe gratitude, favor, recognition, or money to another. This year’s fabricating the body panel is soliciting proposals for conference papers that explore the notion of indebted bodies – those cloaked in obligations (willing or otherwise). We are interested in papers that study this concept of bodies in debt from any theoretical perspective. Textual analysis of any genre or time period is welcome.
Please send 500-word abstracts by April 30 to Melissa Ames, Eastern Illinois University, firstname.lastname@example.org.
