John Jay College of Criminal Justice's 4th Law and Literature Conference (October 30-Nov1 2015))

The John Jay College of Criminal Justice’s 4th Law and Literature Conference

This conference considers literary renderings of labor concerns, broadly defined, to explore law.

The responsibility of the state described by Plato, the contracts written by Shakespeare's Shylock, or the works delving into the plight of modern laborers all explore the intersections between Literature and Law. This conference will explore the way that literary renderings of labor concerns, broadly defined, have responded to or have influenced the law.

The 2015 John Jay College of Criminal Justice's Law and Literature Conference is especially interested in the following areas although all submissions will be considered.

I am organizing a proposed panel on representations of the city within Faulkner's texts for the upcoming ALA Symposium "The City and American Literature." I'm looking for 2-4 proposals on any aspect of the city in Faulkner's works. If interested, please send a 250-500 word abstract to jcobrien@memphis.edu by June 27, 2015.

Jefferson, Mississippi is definitely on the table, but I am especially interested in his treatments, portrayals, and uses of larger cites (Memphis, New Orleans, Chicago, Los Angeles, etc.).

The early promise of the Internet as an opportunity to enhance community, bringing people together to work together toward positive ends, long seemed a pipe dream. More recently, social media has become an undeniably powerful site of cultural influence and change. Women's issues in particular benefit from an expanded dialogue online.

The feminist movement has been categorised as a series of different waves, first, second and third, with some contemporary critics suggesting we are now on the precipice of a fourth wave. Each of these stages had their own aims and means of achieving those aims: underlying all was a quest for equality, for some or for all. Increasingly this neat categorization of the feminist movement has been questioned and challenged, especially with the internet age offering a greater platform of communication for female-identified individuals and feminists alike.

In what ways can the visual arts unite or divide humanity? How can their subjects and functions stir us to collaboration or lead to disagreement, apathy, or even war? How do objects themselves change when their relationships to one another, or to the viewer, are altered or rearranged?

In the impasse induced by crisis, being treads water; mainly, it does not drown. Even those whom you would think of as defeated are living beings figuring out how to stay attached to life from within it, and to protect what optimism they have for that, at least. - Lauren Berlant, "Cruel Optimism"
