CFP - Specters of Ethics – in the Trails of Globalization and Futurity

Wednesday, October 22, 2014 - 8:14am
Susan Arndt / Mariam Popal/ Rinaldo Walcott University of Bayreuth, University of Toronto

Ethics is a global endeavor bereft of any universal validity. Ethics is subjective, positioned and biased, commuting between subjectivity and collectivity/community. Ever since the birth of this concept, ethics was praised and betrayed, simultaneously, asking for resistance, empowerment and resituation.[...]
In a relatively new 'turn to ethics', this project seeks to work with an idea of the ethical that goes beyond colonial encountering and along the lines of cultural and economic surplus thinking as the fundament of the planet's present global amalgamation. Looking at the asymmetries and disjunctures of global (labour and mind) divisions and their value-coding, the project takes these questions as a starting point:

Trance, March 5-6th

Tuesday, October 21, 2014 - 9:30pm
The Graduate Center-CUNY English Department Graduate Student Association

The Graduate Center-CUNY English Student Association Conference: Trance
March 5-6 2015

This conference seeks to bring together critical and imaginative forms of scholarship, workshops, performance and other creative work around ideas of trance. From the Great Awakening's irruptive glossalia to the glossed eyes of late capitalist workers, from various manifestations of trance dance to the moving spiral, trance is woven into the fabrics of spiritual, theological, political, and literary histories, texts and methodologies. Trance not only challenges Enlightenment models of knowledge production, but also forces us to navigate extra-linguistic experience, thus destabilizing language as epistemological ground.

Sexual (Dis)continuities: A Graduate Student Conference

updated: 
Monday, October 20, 2014 - 12:07pm
CUNY Graduate Center, Department of French

Foucault's influence on the field of sexuality studies is undeniable, yet many scholars have taken him to task for his famous assertion that the nineteenth-century gave birth to the homosexual as "un personnage" whereas the sodomite was simply "un sujet juridique". These distinctions between acts and persona, between alterity and continuum have been vigorously analyzed and debated by scholars in all areas of sexuality studies, including hetero-, homo- and queer sexualities. Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick sharply criticized this divide as presupposing that the modern homosexual is a "coherent definitional field", and that earlier sexual categories simply disappear as new ones take over.

As the first section of the Henri Peyre French Institute's six-semester series on Food and Foodstuffs in the French and Francophone worlds (Food, Power, Exchange and Identity: Food and Foodstuffs in the French and Francophone Worlds), the Fall 2014 Seminar on Salt includes online visual exhibits and an online forum and culminates in a full-day colloquium on December 5, 2014.
