"Following Heidegger's suggestion that in modernity the world has come to be grasped and conceived as a 'picture,' we may say that in the wake of the atomic bombs the world has come to be grasped and conceived as a target–to be destroyed as soon as it can be made visible."
–Rey Chow, The Age of the World Target

[UPDATE] 7th Annual Graduate Conference: "alt/" (March 16-17, 2013; abstracts due 12/15)

"Alt," neither a word nor a prefix in the grammatical sense, has nevertheless been a generative concept in contemporary scholarly interrogations of non-normative ways of engaging with and inhabiting the world. Various fields and disciplines have begun to investigate the meaning, value, and application of alt, inviting critical discourses around questions of alterities, alternations, and alternatives. From considering relations with others to shifting theoretical frameworks to imagining alternate realities, alt complicates periodizations, genres, identities, subjectivities, epistemologies, and discourses.

Love of Wisdom Vs. Wisdom of Love

3rd Comparative Literature Graduate Conference
SUNY-BUFFALO, 2013

*Deadline for Abstract Submission: Feb.1st, 2013
Email to: WisdomLoveBuffalo@gmail.com

Insofar as philosophia concerns the "love of wisdom," the possibilities and limits of wisdom and love call into question the possibility of philosophy. As love and wisdom are consciously and unconsciously unified in the philosophers' pursuits of wisdom, could the wisdom of love have been supplemented, mixed or misled by the love of wisdom? Does it make philosophy as the result of philosophia problematic?
