ACLA 2017 - Feminist Philosophies of Media

updated: 
Thursday, August 18, 2016 - 11:13am

This seminar examines how feminism and media inform and create one another. Media have played a role in the historical positioning of women as they have served as tools of mediation: the typist, the film editrice, phone operators, the virgin as commune between gods and mortals, the psychic medium, etc. Considering this, we find feminist philosophies to be informed through various positions of mediation but are also interested in feminist philosophies that are in conversation with the phenomena of mediation. How does the body serve as an instrument of philosophical inquiry? What are the limits of this instrumentality?

CFP NeMLA 2017: "Queer and Now": Queerness in the Mainstream

updated: 
Wednesday, August 17, 2016 - 12:32pm
North East Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

On or about June 26, 2015, human character changed. As late as 1991, Eve Sedgwick observed that being queer at that time still meant being someone whose life did not matter and whose very survival was highly uncertain (“Queer and Now”). Yet, our contemporary “now” is a moment which has seen same sex marriage declared a federal right; openly queer persons appear as comedians, TV reporters and characters on shows, in films and recently on the musical stage. No longer “apparitional” in Terry Castle’s well-known sense, queers of the current moment might not be confined to haunting the margins of the social imaginary.

This panel seeks to bring together teacher-scholars who utilize the philosophical tradition of American Pragmatism in teaching literature, writing, digital media, cultural criticism or rhetoric and composition.

This includes those who teach the work of William James, John Dewey and their progeny directly, and those who use pragmatist thought to inform broader pedagogical or theoretical projects.  Whether interested in the semiotics of C.S. Peirce, the neo-pragmatism of Richard Rorty or Stanley Fish, the “prophetic pragmatism” of Cornel West, or any other branch of the pragmatist tradition, all are welcome.
