Scholar Nomads: Academia in the 21st Century - April 9-11

Tuesday, January 6, 2015 - 4:28pm
St. Bonaventure University Department of English

Both popular and scholarly press has been confronting the changing role of higher education, from Frank Donoghue's Last Professor to Henry Giroux and Kostas Myrsiades's collection Beyond the Corporate University. Technology, economic shifts, and cultural-existential needs change roles for faculty, students, and administration. Many incoming scholars face a "brave new world" of increased adjunct positions, declining tenure, MOOCs, reduced pure research, and students who may not fit traditional models. Finding a new home in this shifting world may prove difficult or exciting, depending on the outlook.

Hostile Intelligences and The General Antagonism

"Collective intelligence has to organise itself into a hostile intelligence — also in the sense of inoculating the host as a malignant parasite. An alien intelligence is not concerned with any orthodoxy, it proliferates and organises its own heresies".
–Matteo Pasquinelli

Sunday, January 4, 2015 - 3:08pm
University of South Florida English Graduate Student Association

In her 2014 Modern Language Association Presidential Address, "Connective Histories in Vulnerable Times," Marianne Hirsch reconfigures vulnerability. She asserts that answers to problems lie within the "aesthetic encounters" that we practice, study, and teach, which "elicit a sense of vulnerability that can move us toward an ethics and a politics of open endedness and mobility, attuning us to the needs of the present, potentialities for change, and to the future." Vulnerability, in essence, sustains us. In this era of STEM-focused funding and vast academic change, the humanities continue to reconfigure vulnerability into sustainability.

Travel and Translation in the Middle Ages

March 28, 2015 at Yale University

Abstracts from graduate students are now being accepted for the 32nd Annual New England Medieval Studies Consortium Graduate Student Conference, the theme of which will be "Travel and Translation in the Middle Ages." In light of recent endeavors such as the Global Chaucers project, the growing interest in the multilingual cultures of England, and the upcoming anniversaries of two great medieval councils, Fourth Lateran (1215) and Constance (1415), "travel" and "translation" are immediately relevant to many branches of medieval studies.
