Session Title - Images of Crisis: Poetic Ways of Seeing Disasters

Whether it is Landscape with the Fall of Icarus or the photograph of a dead three year-old Syrian boy on the beach, visual representations of disasters unsettle us, at times in unexplainable ways. As Susan Sontag suggests in Regarding the Pain of Others, narratives imbue the images with much of their meaning. In this sense, literary art, as a descriptive rhetorical device that captures the essential stories of visual images, becomes a critical motor of meaning-making.

Religions make normative claims and scholars have normative commitments. However, religious studies often conceives of itself as an empirical discipline, aligning itself with other disciplines that are ostensibly descriptive, like history, sociology, and anthropology. This tension has led to polarization within religious studies.

CFP: How is it Possible to Think Through and Beyond Catastrophe? Composing for a Common, Livable World

Ron Milland, Critical Legal Conference: University of Warwick

The slowly unfolding catastrophe currently referred to as ‘Anthropocene’ generates a number of dire questions that we cannot even ask – let alone begin to answer – without deep thought. This panel asks how such deep thought might be possible in the face of the self-indulgent apocalypse narratives (Haraway), barbarism, infernal alternatives and sorcery (Stengers), and blind panic / desire to look away (Klein) that are engendered in catastrophic time.
