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:

The official reaction of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to The Book of Mormon, the musical from Matt Stone and Trey Parker of South Park and Robert Lopez of Avenue Q, consists of a single sentence: "The production may attempt to entertain audiences for an evening, but the The Book of Mormon as a volume of scripture will change people's lives forever by bringing them closer to Christ."

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.
