Aerial Assault: Drone Warfare, Precision Bombing, and Combatant Experience

During the Persian Gulf War, the American military debuted smart-bombing that quickly eliminated Iraqi infrastructure. The Persian Gulf War was known as a “clean” war, as targets were efficiently acquired and destroyed. The War in Iraq further exemplified the American military prowess in aerial assault: Predator and Reaper drones acquired targets and enabled surveillance. Although weaponized drones are an efficient means of acquiring and destroying targets, we should contemplate how the American military conducts war in foreign countries, the ethical stakes, and how the combatant’s experience of war has transformed in the age of technology. An especially important facet of drone warfare to consider is the civilian impact.

Women, Madness, and Badness in Contemporary American Literature and Visual Arts

updated: 
Wednesday, August 16, 2017 - 10:25pm
Northeast Modern Language Association Convention
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Where does one draw the line between madness and badness when it comes to women’s misbehavior? In some cases, a woman who defies social convention is considered bad, exhibiting a kind of failed femininity. In others, her actions are, in fact, so bad that she must be mad to have committed them. This panel seeks to unpack the concepts of madness and badness in contemporary American literature and visual arts to determine when these terms are worth resisting, and when they might be worth embracing.
