Literature and Science: A Reciprocal Exchange?

updated: 
Monday, August 10, 2009 - 2:19pm
full name / name of organization: 
NeMLA convention (April 7-11 2010) in Montreal, Quebec

This panel seeks to take account of the humanities' recent engagement with the sciences, an engagement that puts aside the hermeneutics of suspicion in favor of the appropriation and transformation of scientific knowledge. Beyond science studies and its demystification of objectivity, fields such as affect theory and ecocriticism, temporality studies and new media philosophy, biopolitics and animal studies bring the methodologies of literary studies to scientific objects and scientific methodologies to literary objects. This panel will consider the terms of these engagements. What are the points of convergence between literary and scientific theories? What does literary theory have to offer to the sciences in return?

Conference on Democracy and Direct Action: Documenting Indigenous Responses to Neo-Colonialism and Globalization

Friday, August 7, 2009 - 5:24pm
full name / name of organization: 
Melissa Ortiz, Xicano Development Center

Xicano, Indigenous, and Working-Class communities across the continent are finding new ways to combat and resist the increasing encroachment of global capitalism. While much lip service is paid to the idea of democracy, what we actually see is an increasing intolerance for the basic principles of citizen participation. From simple electoral participation to more complex practices of community development and political organization, most "citizens" do not even possess the basic skills for active participation in a representational Democracy. We have to ask ourselves why?
