Catherine Malabou opens Before Tomorrow (2014) with a striking yet seemingly simple question: ‘Why has the question of time lost its status as the leading question of philosophy?’ At one time, once upon a time, time led the way to the meaning of being, so why has no one ‘taken up the problem by trying to develop afresh a decisive concept of temporality?’ And, more, why does no one even ask this question anymore?

Journal Submission - Call: great apes and personhood

updated: 
Monday, April 2, 2018 - 12:36pm
ASEBL Journal, St. Francis College
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, August 1, 2018

Call for a paper that addresses and compares great ape intelligence and social behavior. Specifically, we’d be interested, in line with the aims and scope of the journal, for a paper that looks at, among great apes, what has been traditionally considered human-unique traits and characteristics like moral behavior. Therefore, emphasis could be placed, comparatively speaking even among the great apes, on the similarities and differences in helping, aggression, and intelligence among orangutans, gorillas, chimpanzees, and bonobos. In this regard, one could discuss recent findings in the context of great ape personhood. In turn, the paper could dovetail into a discussion about great apes in captivity, habitat loss, and animal rights.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 20, 2018

In today's culture, it's almost impossible to avoid monsters. Straight from mythology and legend, these fantastic creatures traipse across our television screens and the pages of our books. Over centuries and across cultures, the inhuman have represented numerous cultural fears and, in more recent times, desires. This panel will explore the literal monsters--whether they be mythological, extraterrestrial, or man-made--that populate fiction and film, delving into the cultural, psychological and/or theoretical implications. Please submit a 250-300 word abstract, a brief bio, and any A/V needs by May 20, 2018 to Crystal O’Leary-Davidson at Middle Georgia State University crystal.odavidson@mga.edu .
