Living By The Code: An Exploration of Morality and Ethics, March 8-10, 2013

Friday, September 28, 2012 - 10:33pm
Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s English Graduate Organization

Morality and ethics shape our lives in a plethora of ways. It affects how individuals act on a daily basis, interact with one another, and—most tellingly—act when faced with important decisions that could influence culture and history. Personal morals are not only indicators of who a person truly is but also of their perceptions on their society, life and death, and quality and worth of life.

To diversify the current critical discussion of sexuality and spirituality in the works of William Blake, this panel invites explorations of the relationships between these two areas, broadly defined. How, in Blake's words and images, are issues of sex (gender, eroticism, procreation, sexualities, straight or queer, etc.) related to issues of spirit (faith, spiritual vision, religious institutions and practices, etc.)? All critical approaches are welcome. E-mail 250 word abstracts (MS Word or PDF) to Karen Guendel, kareng@bu.edu.
