Radical Materialisms

Boston College English Graduate Conference

April 6th, 2019

New materialisms and object-oriented ontology offer a radical reorganization—perhaps a democratization—of human/object relations, deemphasizing human agency in favor of a “parliament of things.” This conference asks if such approaches have been too quick to abandon human politics altogether. Can new materialisms be both conceptually and politically radical?

Lacanian and Foucaultian Approaches to the Body Essay Collection

Thursday, January 31, 2019

Both Jacques Lacan and Michel Foucault took the body as an object of critical inquiry but explored it in divergent ways. This collection of essays, under advance contract with McFarland and Company, will bring together scholars working from Lacanian and Foucaultian perspectives to interrogate the body. Collectively, the papers selected for this volume will aspire to answer, among others, the following questions: how do Lacan and Foucault approach the body, and what new forms of subjectivity emerge when we pay attention to the body? What are we allowed to do to or with our bodies, and what are we allowed to ask others to do to or with our bodies?
