Summer School in Ontology

updated: 
Friday, April 8, 2016 - 9:36am
International School of Philosophy

Our school valorises the unavoidable pursuit of ontology, foregrounding the debate on this classical philosophical question. We do not intend to endorse one particular approach to ontology; on the contrary we have attempted to gather what we consider to be the most interesting philosophical perspectives of our time. The 2016 edition will offer a cutting edge, high-quality programme, thanks to the participation of some of the leading contemporary philosophers: Francesco Berto, Félix Duque, Adrian Jonhston, François Laruelle, Claude Romano, and Alenka Zupančič.

Racism and Discrimination in the Sporting World
An interdisciplinary volume to be edited by:
Professor of French and Fulbright Scholar
Eileen M. Angelini, Ph.D.
Canisius College

What is it about culture and society that creates an environment in which an athlete is able to excel or fail in his/her respective sport? Which factors, such as racism, discrimination, financial advantage or hardship, propel or hinder an athlete's achievements? This volume seeks to explore how the world of sports is often a microcosm of the real world and the many ways in which it uniquely reflects cultural and societal issues. Abstracts are welcomed from all disciplines.

CFP: thresholds no. 1, Extraneous

updated: 
Thursday, April 7, 2016 - 5:31am
Fran McDonald, Whitney Trettien

thresholds is a new digital journal co-edited by Whitney Trettien (UNC) and Fran McDonald (U. Louisville). The journal's platform bears witness to the dynamic processes that constitute reading and writing by way of a split-screen architecture. On the left side of the screen, we publish short essays (essayer – trial, attempt, test). The right side of the screen is populated by the various text fragments, images, audio, and video clips that inspired the author and propelled the corresponding work. Unlike a footnote or endnote, these fragments are not explicitly harnessed to the essay's main body; they do not rustle the reader toward a specific interpretative conclusion.
