The fool's journey has been characterized as one that opens the seeker to the "infinite but self-disclosing mystery" of the soul (Wolf-Salin 2005). Current social discourse propelling discussions and enactments of gender fluidity and feminine empowerment coupled with the ubiquitous, problematic, and potential-filled documentation of the self on social media forms a situation where the most private of enterprises (interior discovery) is rendered a perpetual public act, surveilled, critiqued, and disseminated potentially by the entire world.

Action : Arrest

Performance, protest, and the law

A one-day symposium

Keynote Speaker: Jennifer Doyle (University of California, Riverside)

Join us in exploring the role of action and arrest in protest, law, and performance.

Inspired by their compelling dualities, the symposium aims to open up a new set of questions that may further complicate the relationship between these terms.

With his signature bullwhip and fedora, the familiar sounds of his orchestral anthem, and his eventful explorations into the arcana of world religions, Indiana Jones – archeologist, adventurer, and ophidiophobe – has become one of the most recognizable heroes of the silver screen.  Since his debut in 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones has appeared in three sequels, and Steven Spielberg has recently announced that he will soon begin production on a fifth Indiana Jones film.  Along the way, the character has spawned a raft of children’s novels, cartoon and live-action television series, and video and role-playing games.  Despite the longevity and popularity of the Indiana Jones franchise, however, it has rarely been the focus of academic
