The Parthenon Sculptures have long been a source of disparagement and fascination, especially since their arrival in London as early as 1803. Prior to that year, Thomas Bruce, seventh Earl of Elgin, procured a collection now housed in the British Museum as the Elgin Marbles, intensifying a transformation in which materiality of the marbles has been infused with seemingly vital force through an after-life of aesthetic representation. Whether through drawings, paintings, or poetry, the Elgin Marbles as objects have animated their subjects—pensive in gaze—to motivate, in effect, proliferation through aesthetic production.

[One-Day Symposium] The Neighbourhood—Call for Abstracts

While the word “community” is more often than not suffused with a benevolent glow, connoting the virtues purportedly associated with groups of people—shared values and heritage, constancy and solidarity—“neighbourhood” is a term that has a more ambiguous, even troublesome, valency. Neighbourhoods, depending on one’s point of view, can be good or bad, welcoming or hostile, safe or dangerous, dull or vibrant. They can also, in both their physical and figurative senses, change over time, beset by vagaries, be they sociological, geographical, political, moral or even psychological..These changes can be existential—neighbourhoods come and go, they die out or are subsumed into larger ones, or are supplanted by newer geographical collectivities.

Divisions/Revisions of Labor: Tufts University Women's Center Symposium on Gender and Culture

updated: 
Monday, December 3, 2018 - 12:28pm
Tufts University Women's Center
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 7, 2019

What counts as labor, and who gets to decide? For the 8th Annual Tufts University Women’s Center Symposium on Gender and Culture, we will explore how questions of identity shape our ideas about labor. What kinds of work are men, women, and trans or nonbinary people expected to perform, and for whom? How do various identities and positionalities—like gender, race, class, and sexuality—inform the work we do? And what does it mean to resist gendered, raced, classed, or otherwise invisible labor? How can we reshape our understanding of what is work and what work matters?
