What counts as labor, and who gets to decide? For the 8th Annual Tufts University Women’s Center Symposium on Gender and Culture, we will explore how questions of identity shape our ideas about labor. What kinds of work are men, women, and trans or nonbinary people expected to perform, and for whom? How do various identities and positionalities—like gender, race, class, and sexuality—inform the work we do? And what does it mean to resist gendered, raced, classed, or otherwise invisible labor? How can we reshape our understanding of what is work and what work matters?

How do comics and related visual media such as illustrated books, comic strips, and animation represent disability differently from other media, and what new possibilities do they propose for thinking about or visualizing ability?
Join us for a one-day conference at Dartmouth College on Friday April 26, 2019.
What is real and what is fake? And why does it matter? As soon as objects, texts and utterances (be they pragmatic or artistic) become imbued with a sense of authority or authenticity, there is a potential to produce other objects, texts and utterances which mimic and attempt to siphon off that authority and authenticity. In late medieval and early modern European culture (1400-1750), this potential was realized in new and unprecedented ways. Social, technological, and intellectual developments forever altered many activities which fall under the remit of forgery and fabrication, spurring lively debate about truth and falsity. The printing press transformed the production, distribution and marketing of texts and images.

If we really want to change things…, it’s going to start at the grassroots level,
In 1974, in the shadow of the Vietnam War and amidst the economic and political retrenchments of post-1968, Ursula K. Le Guin published The Dispossessed. The novel’s radical innovation of the narrative utopia, with its unblinking acknowledgment of the form’s conceptual as well as practical limits, paradoxically revitalized and reactivated utopia’s uncompromising social vocation for an emphatically anti-utopian era.

Despite an increased call for applicants from marginalized populations, people with a disability are more quickly eliminated as potential candidates for full time academic employment, either through direct discrimination or from ablest conventions of the job interview process.
