From the Civil Rights Movement to #BlackLives Matter, images of racially motivated violence have spurred nationwide protest. Despite overwhelming photographic evidence, juries – in the case of Emmett Till, Trayvon Martin, and countless others – nonetheless failed to find the perpetrators guilty. A picture of a toddler lying face down on a beach brought worldwide attention to the Syrian refugee crisis. The initial outrage caused by the photograph quickly dissipated, and today, this ongoing global crisis has largely disappeared from the public view.

THE PARADOX OF THE OTHER: DIFFICULTIES IN CLASSIFICATION

Eleventh Annual Brooklyn College Graduate English Conference

Saturday, May 5, 2018

“If one could possess, grasp, and know the other, it would not be other,” wrote Emmanuel Levinas.  The paradox Levinas identifies is at the heart of this conference’s concerns. Despite our definitions – the unknown, the demonic, and the withdrawn, for example – the “other,” by definition, must elude our grasp.  Given this un-givenness, why do scholars continue to pursue questions of otherness? What is it about otherness that provokes or induces scholarly interest?
