  Off the Map: Ecocriticism Beyond Borders

"Ecological thinking about literature requires us to take the nonhuman
world as seriously as previous modes of criticism have taken the human realm of society and culture. That, it seems to me, is ecocriticism's greatest challenge and its greatest opportunity."
- Glen A. Love, "Ecocriticism and Science"

  "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.

  Only Human?: Medical Biology vs. The Social Model of Disability
   
  In her 1999 book Female Forms, Carol Thomas suggests that disability studies and activism would benefit from a social model approach to definitions of disability, as opposed to the long-standing contention that disability, impairment, and its effects are biological, physiological, anatomical—in short, medical.

Addressing the question of how psychoanalytic theories might speak
about "race," Hortense Spillers gives the term "African Oedipus" to a
model of cultural self-formation which recognizes the status of the
"father" as a social function rather than a biological genitor ("'All
the Things You Could Be by Now if Sigmund Freud's Wife Was Your
Mother': Psychoanalysis and Race"). For Spillers, the term "African
Oedipus" mediates a sociosymbolic order characterized by shifting
specular relations rather than by the fixed hierarchical positions and
meanings attributed to the father, the mother and the child within the
traditional Freudian model. The term "African Oedipus" is also linked

Theory of Mind and Literature Conference
Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, November 1-3, 2007


Call for Papers
“Theory of Mind and Literature” is the first conference devoted solely to the implications for the theory and study of literature of the psychological activity of inferring what other people are thinking, perceiving or feeling. This process, sometimes lightly called “mindreading,” is generally considered in cognitive science to be facilitated by the possession of a Theory of Mind (ToM). ToM may be one of the things that makes literatureâ€"the writing and reading of literature, as well as the social relationships among characters in works of literatureâ€"possible.
