  The Gothic and the Sublime: Romanticism and Reason
   
  As I was walking among the fires of Hell,
  delighted with the enjoyments of Genius;
  which to Angels look like torment and insanity.
  I collected some of their Proverbs. – William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, 1790
   
  How should we read these famous lines from Blake's masterpiece? What is the place of Reason in religion? Passion in morality? The Gothic in the Sublime – and vice versa?

  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?

Ethnoscapes: An Interdisciplinary Journal on Race and Ethnicity in the
Global Context

Issue Two, Spring 2007

The editorial staff for the new peer-reviewed journal Ethnoscapes: An
Interdisciplinary Journal on Race and Ethnicity in the Global Context

Migration, Globalization, and Citizenship." Ethnoscapes maps the

critical issues within the contemporary economic, political, and cultural
terrain.

  February 15-17, 2007
  Arizona State University—Tempe Arizona
     
  "Angry Young (Wo)Men": Theatrical Violence as Ethical Debate

In late 1995, two significant events changed the theatrical landscape:
John Osborne (Look Back in
Anger) died, and Sarah Kane's play Blasted premiered at the Royal Court
Theatre in London. The timing
was somewhat serendipitous—as one of the original "Angry Young Men"
left this world, one of the "New
Brutalists" made her mark on it.

Southwest Graduate English Symposium – 2007
   
   
  "Fili" the "Buster": Political Satire and the Public
   
  From Jonathan Swift to Jon Stewart, political satire evokes visceral responses, whether from love or hate. But why? What is it about this satire that appeals to or repulses the public? Can we distinguish an ethics of political satire, or is it marked by the lack of ethics completely? How should we engage this satire – if we should engage it at all?
   
  This panel seeks papers and presentations that discuss various forms, methods, writers, outlets, responses, and/or refutations of political satire throughout history, from Aristophanes to Steven Colbert.
