Authority and Authorities in Thomas Browne and His Contemporaries: A Symposium

 

Saturday 21st April 2007, University of Leeds

 

This day-long symposium will examine how early modern writers - especially but not exclusively those involved in natural philosophy - claim, invoke, construe, query or undermine authority and authorities. This is the second session of the 'Thomas Browne Seminar', but papers are by no means confined to Browne's works. In particular, we hope to encourage papers on the following:

The Ethics of Passing
   
  The concept of "passing" is not new to the American landscape. While racial/ethnic passing may be the most widely recognized form of passing, recent acceptance of queer and transgender studies reveals passing as more than a matter of skin color. The most general question, what are the ethics involved and undermined in participating in passing, opens the door to many other questions surrounding this issue. Does the actor always have control over her/his own ability to pass? What does it mean that someone can be passed without desiring such recognition? What kind of responsibility is involved in revealing ethnic, sexual, or gender "authenticity" if even the notion of the authentic has become problematic?

We are seeking a third participant for a special session that will be taking
place at the MLA convention this year, on Wednesday, December 27, at 5:15
pm, in Philadelphia. The title of the special session is "Postirony in
Theory and Fiction."

One of our participants is no longer able to take part in this panel, which
means we have an open slot that we'd like to fill. We're especially
interested in papers that discuss the concept of postirony in the essays
and fiction of David Foster Wallace. Papers on related topics are also
welcome.

ABSTRACTS DUE 1/22/07

A recent article in London's Financial Times (FT) warned its
market-minded readers that the "plight of La Paz provides an
illustration of how a city's unchecked growth can threaten
stability."* The article went on to detail how El Alto, a "slum" city
of 1 million located on a plateau above the Bolivian capital, disrupts
business as usual not just with by now familiar complaints of
"pot-holed roads, belching minibuses, street vendors and packs of
stray dogs," but the radical spatial praxis of its inhabitants.
