Call for Papers: Cultures of Toxicity

Conference at the University of Warwick

Friday 8th and Saturday 9th November 2019  

 
This conference aims to explore the concept of toxicity in relation to a number of contemporary political concerns including culture, health, economics, gender, and ecology. We are concerned to examine how cultural practices (from theatre to graphic fiction) and critical methodologies, for example in performance studies, are contributing to, and intervening in, contemporary anxieties about safety, risk and toxicity.
