MORAL MACHINES? THE ETHICS AND POLITICS OF THE DIGITAL WORLD 6–8 March 2019, Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies, University of Helsinki, Finland With confirmed keynotes from N.

Such issue is too complex to be met only with instinctive digiphilia or digiphobia. No technology is just a tool, all technologies mark their users and environments.

RSA Panel: The Female Body as Text in Renaissance Literature

updated:

Allison Collins, UCLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 13, 2018

As the Renaissance saw a rise in female literacy and texts addressed to women readers, the relationship between gender and genre was foregrounded in debates about the appropriate texts for women to read – or if it was appropriate for women to read at all.  These conversations particularly centered on the genre of romance, simultaneously a genre classed as feminine and a genre deemed morally inappropriate for women to read. While these debates raged outside literary texts, within the texts themselves, we see women reading and women as objects to be read – both by the reader of the text and by other characters within the text. How does the female body serve as a text within a text?
