Vulnerability: 10th Annual Medievalists @ Penn Graduate Conference

Monday, October 16, 2017 - 12:42pm
Medievalists @ Penn
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 15, 2018

Keynote Speaker: Masha Raskolnikov, Cornell University

Conference date: Saturday, March 17th 2018, University of Pennsylvania

This conference aims to think of vulnerability as a state of being that precedes but does not necessarily entail violence, a condition that is temporalized, oriented toward a future that is potentially hazardous. To be vulnerable is to be under threat. What are the methods by which the Middle Ages constructed and maintained states of vulnerability? As a corollary, if we think of vulnerability as entailing threat, what are the methods by which people or things are constructed as threats? What did it mean for medieval people to be living under threat?

The 5th World Humanities Forum 2018

 Theme: The Human Image in a Changing World

The theme for the 5th World Humanities Forum is “The Human Image in a Changing World.” The very purpose of humanities research is to study humans, but the image of humans however, has gone through on-going changes not only throughout different time periods but also according to the various local situations. Therefore it is important that we primarily capture human images and then document the characteristics of the human images from past to present in various academic and ordinary lives.

The Grimm Mouse: Violence in Post-9/11 Animated Disney Films

Saturday, October 14, 2017 - 6:30pm

In 2009, Hubka, Hovdestad and Tonmyr examined Disney animated films from 1937-2006 for "child endangerment," finding a total of 26 of the 42 (62%) main characters were maltreated at least once.  This trend continues in contemporary American G and PG rated animated features.

Not only are child characters in these films treated and portrayed poorly, 9/11 related themes have skyrocketed since 2001; these include issues of patriotism versus nationalism, the security state, and even torture scense.  For example, think of toddler Boo strapped into the torture chair ("scream extractor") in Monsters, Inc.

Scale and proportion in art and architecture are both concerned with size: while scale refers to the size of an object in relationship to another object, proportion refers to the relative size of parts of a whole. Throughout history of art, many artworks represent what was considered as an ideal based on the ancient classical Greek model and therefore serve as an illustration of both scale and proportion in art.

Here, we are interested in how scale and proportion function today in art and architecture, therefore we invite you to submit papers to bring scale and scaling into view. What ideals and/or ideology do they represent, how measurement scales are built and what are these, what are the relationships between materiality and size?
