Exploring Moral Interfaces: Private Worlds and Public Systems, 7th to 9th October, 2015

Exploring Moral Interfaces:
Private Worlds and Public Systems
An International Conference organized by The English and Foreign Languages University
7th to 9th October, 2015
"Everyone deserves a private life," says the female protagonist in the 1994 movie, Three Colors: Red by Krzysztof Kieślowski. The intrusive nature of the modern technologies that facilitate access—without consent or acknowledgement—to the private domains of people's lives further blurs the already hazy borderlines that separate the public from the private. The proposed conference will address some of the troubling issues relating to this phenomenon.

Modernism in the Green

For all its many urban topographies, the literary landscape of modernism contains a startling array of greens. From William Carlos Williams's representations of Garret Mountain Park, to Peter's reflections on Mrs. Dalloway in Regents Park or Wallace Stevens' frequent use of Elizabeth Park throughout his oeuvre, planned green spaces play an overlooked role in the development of modernism. We propose that thinking with and through public greens leads to a fresh and often more complex understanding of modernism's tangled engagements with arts, politics, material culture, bodies, and the nature-culture divide.

Go West!

An area of multiple panels for the 2015 Film & History Conference:
Journeys, Detours, Breakdowns
November 5-8, 2015
The Madison Concourse Hotel and Governor's Club
Madison, WI (USA)

DEADLINE for abstracts: June 1, 2015

AREA: Go West!
It seems that someone is always travelling somewhere in the Western. Be it progressive or populist, romantic or realistic, epic or tragic the American errand into the Western's wilderness transmits sets of assumptions about the American Character and the American Experience. Commenting on the economic, psychological, political, and social fluidities of American life, the Western frontier is itself constantly in flux.

Philosophy and Poetry [Edited Volume]

Subashish Bhattacharjee & Saikat Guha [India]

Poetry has been a continuous presence in the realm of philosophy. While the conflation often engendered poetic synchronization to the epistemic and aesthetic concerns of philosophy the cross-currents also opened up interesting instances of dissent. The resultant proliferation of ideas gave impetus to 'other' readings of poetry parallel to its traditional nuance. This volume seeks scholarly and original essays that take into account philosophy's engagement with poetry that goes back to Plato and Aristotle, and is a continuing imperative in the philosophical paradigms of Kant, Hegel, Rousseau, Dilthey, Nietzsche, Jean-Luc Nancy, Merleau-Ponty, Gadamer, Bakhtin, Heidegger, Sartre, Blanchot, Derrida, Adorno, Agamben and others.

RADICAL KINSHIP

Keynote: Omise'eke Tinsley, University of Texas at Austin
Conference Date: October 16, 2015

Conference Webpage: https://tuftsgradhumanitiesconference.wordpress.com/

Kinships that cross boundaries often entail radical decenterings of family, community, or subjectivity. What happens when Yellow Peril supports Black Power in Ferguson? When Maggie Simpson holds up a Je Suis Charlie sign? When, in a single frame, Kordale and Kaleb dismantle stale notions of Black masculinity, queerness, and fatherhood?

Can we undomesticate kinship?
