Feminist Singularities

Co-organizers: Jacquelyn Ardam, UCLA; Ronjaunee Chatterjee, CalArts

2015 marked the 30-year anniversary of the publication of Donna Haraway's "A Cyborg Manifesto," whose radical questioning of the divisions between human and machine, matter and meaning, and gendered and "postgendered" existence continues to animate our social reality. Recent discussions in the field of new materialism, which grapple with questions of embodiment and materiality, have opened up new avenues for theorizing femininity outside of conventional frameworks.

DOOM: From the Personal to the Apocalyptic

Saturday, February 27, 2016
10:00am-5:00pm
Held in the Brooks Complex of Wilson College
Chambersburg, PA

sponsored by Wilson's M.A. in Humanities Program

The theme of this year's Wilson College Orr Forum is concerned with the apocalypse, both in biblical representation and thought as well as more scientific and climactic concern. This Humanities Conference wishes to extend this theme beyond these global concerns to focus on doom. Always impending, doom encapsulates fears for both humanity and the individual. Doom can be personal and communal, practical and rhetorical, quite real or simply hyperbole.

First Year Seminar courses provide a way for first year students to undertake the rigors of intellectual study in an environment supportive of the transition they undergo as they enter college. As such, First Year Seminars can be sources of tension, discovery, frustration, and connection. From the instructor's point of view, the experience of teaching a first year seminar can cause new understandings to emerge—understandings of disciplinary value, of first year students, of institutional culture, and of effective pedagogy.

In the past two decades, universities, professional organizations, and businesses around the western world have placed a great emphasis on celebrating diversity on their grounds, welcoming members, students, faculty, and employees from different ethnic, religious, gender, sexual, and class identities. This trend toward embracing otherness has often been instituted and protected by laws and policies in different countries, and employees have been trained to effectively maintain agreeable and harmonious work atmosphere with each other.
