Fictionality in representations of Japan and Europe from a cross-cultural perspective

updated: 
Saturday, February 27, 2016 - 6:24am
Mutual Images

For the fourth Mutual Images workshop, we seek to explore the dynamic relations between Japan and Europe through the notion of fictionality. These past decades, the growth of cultural exchanges has created new opportunities of fictionalization between European and Japanese. Far from being restrained to its definition as a genre, Fictionality has become a key element in our contemporary society. Whether it is in entertainment media (novel, manga, video games, movies and other forms of current entertainment), Art (photography, painting), or even our perception of the other, the self, and reality, fictionality is present in our everyday life.

[Re]Defining Liberal Arts Education in the 21st Century

Friday, February 26, 2016 - 4:20pm
College of Liberal Arts/Jackson State University

The College of Liberal Arts at Jackson State University invites proposals from scholars on all topics related to"[Re]Defining Liberal Arts Education in the 21st Century."

The purpose of this first conference, scheduled for October 6-8, 2016, is to explore the reasons Liberal Arts disciplines are undervalued by students, parents, and others and to examine how we might [re]define or reframe our roles in an increasingly multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary academic world in which job preparedness appears to be the goal of higher education rather than critical and analytical thinking and writing. At the conference, we will also discuss the role of and need for a conference on the liberal arts and how we might move forward.

The Politics of Difference and the Threshold of Law

updated: 
Friday, February 26, 2016 - 11:42am
Albany Law School / SUNY Albany

This conference hosts a multidisciplinary conversation on how we contend with the emergence of violence toward difference, before it receives remedial treatment by the law, that is, before it crosses the threshold of the rule of law. Many – perhaps most – forms of discrimination persist for long periods of time beneath the threshold of the law, and may continue indefinitely (one thinks of recent debates about the Confederate flag at the South Carolina State Capitol, following the Charleston Church shooting).
