[Deadline 15 Feb.] Nineteenth-Century Aetiologies, Exoticism, and Multimodal Aesthetics

updated: 
Saturday, October 13, 2012 - 12:40am
University of Liverpool, 2-4 April 2013

There is a primary understanding of nineteenth-century modes of impression, expression, and interpretation that predispose positive human connection as opposed to the psychology and philosophy of negativity before and after the Enlightenment. Nineteenth-century semiotic sources other than language are particularly read in separation from one another in different fields so much so that in postcolonial studies, for example, we do not see expression of multimodality in its realistic form. Rather we encounter an idealistic homage in its uni-modality, studying the mind and body of the 'other' through the intellectuality of the so-called governing mind and body of the 'self'.

13th SAAPAM ANNUAL CONFERENCE

updated: 
Friday, October 12, 2012 - 8:32am
South African Association of Public Administration and Management

From public administration to new public management; from new public management to governance; from governance to where? With all these nomenclatures, the fundamental question is: where are we heading to? The subtext in this question is, do these nomenclatures represent the evolution of the field? If they do represent the evolution, a further question that comes to mind is why is it that in the long history of the field the discipline has not yet settled its theoretical question?
