Embodied Philosophy is an online educational portal dedicated to Indian, Chinese, and Southeast Asian philosophies and practices.

Imaginings: Other Places

This creative session seeks work that crosses, that inhabits several places or that moves relentlessly through and across places of genre, form, medium, and so on. It is meant as a partner and collaborator with the panel “Thinkings In and Out of Place,” though in this session the boundary-crossings activate and shape the works sought. The call is for scholarship|interpretive work projected into new forms with differently confluent streams of image and text, of prosaic and poetic, of academic and literary. Is there a way to project interpretation and theorization in such a way that resists or operates differently than the conventions of academic discourse, its unshakeable positivity and correlative thetic and agonistic stance?

Some texts resist the place(s) of genre classifications and are nevertheless—in spite of the resistances they perform—constituted as within these boundaries: Plato, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, for example, tend to be held within disciplinary bounds of philosophy. In this panel, a focus will be on texts that seem to strive for displacement, for other places or, more radically, for a continual re-placement or release from place(s) of genre.

Ireland, Irish America, and Work is the theme of the 33rd annual meeting of the American Conference for Irish Studies-Western Regional [ACIS-West] for Oct. 19-22, 2017 at the Davenport Hotel in Spokane, Washington. Many prominent members of the American Labor Movement were Irish and Irish-American. Jim Larkin and James Connolly worked for the I.W.W in both Ireland and the United States, where, in 1917, the I.W.W. began to face vicious repression. By July 1917, federal troops began to be used to suppress industrial conflicts, to raid I.W.W. halls, to break up meetings, and to arrest Wobblies. In Spokane, Irish I.W.W. leader James Rowan was arrested and sent to Leavenworth.

The High and the Low of Walker Percy's Art

Percy's practice and thoughts on art - and the human experience - range from high to low, from immanence to transcendence.   Was Percy's philosophy an abstracted high art and his fiction, a low art, for conveying the same message, but in the humble context of physical life?  Percy's first novel, The Moviegoer, talked of the low art of movies (as they were considered during his time) as escape, but also serving a higher purpose of self-realization.  He writes of the movie magazine as the "low slick."   But the Moviegoer ends with the high art of the church, a conduit for the divine.   Percy wrote of the orbit and re-entry of the artist, going from high to low.

A return to the feminisms of the 1970s is one of the most salient dimensions of feminist studies to emerge over the last decade. Scholarly books, special issues of academic journals, conferences, exhibitions, and research forums have revisited this decade in which feminism became a discernible liberation movement rewriting political and cultural landscapes around the globe. Vibrant with differentiation, moving across multiple practices and disciplines, this return can be characterized in at least two ways. First of all, it creates and traces subtle lines of inquiry between the purported triumphs and failures of 1970s feminisms.

CFP ReFocusThe Films of Xavier Dolan

Ever since his first feature film J’ai tué ma mère premiered at Cannes in 2009, where it received an eight-minute standing ovation and three awards, every film from the prolific and precocious 28 year-old Québécois director Xavier Dolan has generated significant buzz. A recipient of numerous international awards, Dolan has recently taken his career into genre filmmaking (with Tom à la ferme, which premiered at Venice and garnered the prestigious FRIPESCI prize) and to an international level, with his first English-language feature The Death and Life of John F. Donovan now in post-production.

The digital realm has reconfigured the ways in which production and consumption of games happen.  Consider some prominent examples:

  • In May 2011, self-taught game developer Andrew Spinks released his own world-building game after only five months of production.  The game, Terraria, now available on all major computing and gaming platforms, has sold over 20.5 million units, but is still only available through Spinks’s own publishing firm, Re-Logic.
