MORAL MACHINES? THE ETHICS AND POLITICS OF THE DIGITAL WORLD 6–8 March 2019, Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies, University of Helsinki, Finland With confirmed keynotes from N. Katherine Hayles (Duke University, USA) and Bernard Stiegler (IRI: Institut de Recherche et d’Innovation at the Centre Pompidou de Paris) As our visible and invisible social reality is getting increasingly digital, the question of the ethical, moral and political consequences of digitalization is ever more pressing. Such issue is too complex to be met only with instinctive digiphilia or digiphobia. No technology is just a tool, all technologies mark their users and environments.

RSA Panel: The Female Body as Text in Renaissance Literature

updated: 
Friday, June 15, 2018 - 10:55am
Allison Collins, UCLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 13, 2018

As the Renaissance saw a rise in female literacy and texts addressed to women readers, the relationship between gender and genre was foregrounded in debates about the appropriate texts for women to read – or if it was appropriate for women to read at all.  These conversations particularly centered on the genre of romance, simultaneously a genre classed as feminine and a genre deemed morally inappropriate for women to read. While these debates raged outside literary texts, within the texts themselves, we see women reading and women as objects to be read – both by the reader of the text and by other characters within the text. How does the female body serve as a text within a text?

In the American cultural imagination, the Midwest embodies the “home” or “heart” of the nation associated with frontier and rural values of promise, fertility, order, and stability, according to Joanna Jacobson in “The Idea of the Midwest.” Jacobson argues that the Midwest has come to symbolize the quintessentially “American,” speaking to “the impulse to invent a myth of commonality rooted in the physical landscape at the center of the continent and for the insufficiency of that myth as a response to the conditions of urban industrial culture.” While the idea and image of the Midwest in American culture serve as resources of recovery and refuge from the ill effects of urban industrialism, it is increasingly evident that these visions of a pastor

‘What happens when Derrida, a great thinker, becomes silent? What becomes of Derrida, what becomes of his friends, those who read him, think through him, speak to him?’(Douzinas, “Adieu Derrida”) With this rhetoric question, Costas Douzinas starts a book Adieu Derrida, in which renowned contemporary thinkers (Jean-Luc Nancy, Alain Badiou, Gayatri Spivak, Slavoj Žižek and others) reflect on the intellectual legacy of one of the most important philosophical figures of 20thcentury, Jacques Derrida. Indeed, what does it mean now, after almost 15 years after Derrida’s death, to read him, to think through him, to speak to him?
