Wednesday, January 15, 2020

UC San Diego’s Department of Literature is excited to announce their second annual graduate conference. This year’s theme, “Movement,” embraces the complexities of the potential for, and results of, movement. The term “movement” has been at the center of aesthetics, literary history, and philosophy for centuries. From a movement like the Young Hegelians, that criticized the political establishment and capitalist modes of production, to the Aesthetic Movement, that created “art for art’s sake,” movements have shaped critical thinking in a variety of fields. In the social sciences, social, horizontal, vertical, and spatial mobility have been analyzed for decades.

People will be able to liberate themselves only after the legal superstructure itself has begun to wither away. And when we begin to overcome and to do without these [juridical] concepts in reality, rather than merely in declarations, that will be the surest sign that the narrow horizon of bourgeois law is finally opening up before us.

Kathleen Blake Yancey views threshold concepts as the “articulation of shared beliefs” that leads to the “modification, extension, and boundary marking” of spaces in social, professional, academic and other communities. Threshold concepts are entry points of knowledge that impact ideas and participants in discourse communities.
