"Daddy, What did you Do in the Culture Wars?": Academia and Public Life - NeMLA 2016

Tuesday, June 23, 2015 - 11:27pm
Northeastern Modern Language Association - Hartford CT, March 17-20, 1016

It's been almost thirty years since Allan Bloom made his clarion call to classicism within the American academy with the publication of The Closing of the American Mind. For as moribund as the humanities have supposedly been (according to positivist scientists, economics majors, and higher education administrators) the "Culture Wars" have surely blazed a bright path across the consciousness of any literature, history, philosophy, theology or cultural studies major. Columnists from William Safire to David Brooks have bemoaned the supposed death of the humanities (while conveniently ignoring how supply-side economics has had a hearty role in that) identifying a "post-modern bogeyman" as being responsible for the murder.

CFP Private/Public - Issue 21, FORUM Postgraduate Journal of Culture & the Arts, Deadline 15 September 2015

FORUM: University of Edinburgh Postgraduate Journal of Culture & the Arts

There has been a significant shift in the boundaries between the private and public realm in recent years. The increasing indistinction between the two spheres has multiple causes, among them the rise of identity politics and the popularity of the confessional mode. The former might be said to underwrite the latter: the feminist rallying cry, 'the personal is the political' providing a substantial justification for radical autobiography. The motto continues as a cornerstone of feminist consciousness, as well as other forms of identity politics, but the ongoing consequences for public discourse are unclear.
