7th Global Conference: Hope

Saturday 14th March – Monday 16th March 2015
Lisbon, Portugal

Call for Presentations:
When Pandora's box emptied all of its ills that would plague the world, one small winged creature still remained: HOPE. This project inquires into the nature of this gift. Is hope, in fact, a good, encouraging us to do or be good? Or is it an evil; an illusion, perhaps an impossible fantasy? How does hope manifest itself in the world, in language, literature, and the arts? How should hope be encouraged? Is hope individual or collective in nature? Or both? What does hope contribute to individual or national identity?

Languages on Trial: Translation and the Law, NeMLA, 30 April - 3 May, 2014

Sunday, August 24, 2014 - 2:11pm
Oisín Keohane (University of Toronto) and Ian Fleishman (University of Pennsylvania)

In appealing to the law, one must appeal to language. This raises the question of what kind of appeal to language can be made before the law, and in what ways the law depends on language. Consider Socrates in Plato's "Apology" for instance, pleading to his fellow Athenians to treat him as a stranger, to act as if he were a foreigner, an outsider, one ignorant of the 'native tongue' spoken in Athens. One might highlight how this Socratic 'as if' introduces narrativity and fiction into the very core of legal thought, a narrativity and fiction that the law is both troubled by and which it nevertheless frequently utilizes.

CFP Reminder: The New Materialisms - Issue 19, FORUM Postgraduate Journal of Culture & the Arts

Sunday, August 24, 2014 - 4:42am
FORUM: University of Edinburgh Postgraduate Journal of Culture & the Arts

The role of matter has often been marginalised in much of philosophical thought. Rapid scientific and technological advances in the twentieth century, however, have since heightened the awareness of our place in the world as embodied human beings. This has revealed a pressing urgency to confront the ethical and political implications of our material practices within the dynamic terrain of contemporary times. As such, recognising the importance of material factors has led to an emergence of ways in which our prevailing understandings of material reality can be transformed.

Dealing with Change: Unconventional Reading in Early Modern Europe

updated: 
Saturday, August 23, 2014 - 10:26am
NeMLA 2015

The European continent witnessed widespread transformation between 1500 and 1700. This panel will explore the role of literature as a driving force behind this time of social innovation and cultural turmoil. Possible topics: the interplay between orthodoxy and heterodoxy; the re-appraisal of magical literature and its dialectic with empiricism; the re-interpretation of folklore and popular beliefs; the role of the printing market in the circulation of unorthodox texts; the raison d'état underpinning the birth of national states.
