States of Crisis
Friday, 9 October 2009
Department of English and American Literature
Seventh Annual Graduate Conference
Since its origin in the ancient Greek krisis, "decision," related to krites, a judge, the term crisis has referred to ideas of discernment, evaluation, criticism, and sifting of evidence. In literary studies, for example, one can see moments of crisis in shifting aesthetics and changing genres as well as in literary tradition(s), character representation, and ideas of narrative. Drawing on interdisciplinary approaches and scholarship, this conference will explore different responses to the idea of crisis in the humanities and social sciences.
The FWNS sponsors the annual Francis William Newman Graduate Student Essay Contest and welcomes qualified submissions from March through July.
Intellectus ante Fidem is to be published under the auspices of the Francis William Newman Society by the Philosophy Documentation Center. It will be made available in digital format to institutional and individual subscribers through the database POIESIS. For details, please see our posting: http://www.fwnewman.org/Journal/index.html
