"Race, Politics, and the Humanities in an Age of 'Posts'" Special Issue June 1, 2016

updated: 
Tuesday, January 12, 2016 - 12:00pm
Humanities (an international, peer-reviewed, open access quarterly journal)

This Special Issue comes at a time when the humanities face conceptual, theoretical, and ethical challenges from within their own ranks, as post-racial and post-human discourses problematize or reject many of their foundational principles. The defining boundaries of both "race" and "human" have been radically called into question, challenging us to rethink classificatory systems that found hierarchical relationships between, for example, the "fully human" and sub-human or non-human others. What is at stake for the humanities in this presumably post-racial, post-human age, and, in particular, how are we to reimagine racial equality or human rights as sustainable political projects?

Theories that Shape Worlds: Teaching Literary and Cultural Theory through Science Fiction

updated: 
Monday, January 11, 2016 - 3:23pm
RMMLA (Salt Lake City, UT October 6-8, 2016)

With Ursula K. Le Guin's departure from "hard science fiction" in the 1960s, worlds began to be created that examined the social, cultural, and philosophical foundations of our own societies. These foundations, which are so interwoven into the fabric of our everyday lives that they often defy nuanced examination, were un-Earthed so that their implications and pervasiveness could be clearly displayed. This session seeks to identify methods for how science fiction can be utilized to teach undergraduate students complex literary and cultural theories and will seek to answer questions such as the following: What works can be used to exemplify Marxism, feminism, affect theory, and others?
