Nihilism… Utopianism (June 2017)

 

For the June 2017 issue of Modern Horizons we welcome submissions of essays on the theme of ‘Nihilism … Utopianism’.

On either side of life and underlying the meaningful forms we inhabit and live as individuals is – what? –something? –nothing? This basic and enduring question may be thickened for us through the temporal and metaphysical inquiries of nihilism and utopianism—intellectual and spiritual stances that critically engage with the ways we affirm or gainsay our familiar yet different worlds. Through a variety of papers and perspectives at our conference, we aim to address different positive and negative approaches to these two great themes.

April Durham/Legende Journal for SLSA Conference 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 31, 2017

Timothy Barker’s 2012 book, Time and the Digital, collated perspectives on time in Deleuze, Serres, and Whitehead to theorize a notion of time that is thick, dynamic, and multiple, clarifying the notion that all aspects art, scientific inquiry, and everyday life are involved in a complex becoming inside the operations of flexible, unpredictable movements of time. The idea of continual becoming has been circulating for some time now and informs work by Elizabeth Grosz, Karen Barad, Barbara Bolt, and others as they theorize the ability of subjects and objects to transform each other in an a-linear manner, through their situated relations.

The current buzz word in academic circles is “student engagement.” Faculty are expected to engage in it, but many of us struggle to match our classroom practices with gridded and numbered administrative standards. How does your institution describe, define, view, practice, or measure student engagement? What are the goals set forth administratively and in the classroom? How do you strive to meet those expectations? And how does it matter to your college, to your administrators, to you, and to your students?
