C21's conference Anthropocene Feminism will consider the ways in which feminism has long been concerned with the anthropocene, and what current interest in the anthropocene might mean for feminism, in its evolving histories, theories, and practices.

The Problem of Contingency in Higher Education: 10/9/13-11/15/13

Wednesday, October 9, 2013 - 12:22pm
Hybrid Pedagogy

The case of Margaret Mary Vojtko made much more public a conversation that's been heating up in academe. Vojtko, an adjunct professor at Duquesne University, passed away at 83, shortly after the university didn't renew her teaching contract. Although many facts and facets about the woman's life, wages, health, and relationship with her employer have been uncovered and discussed -- and opinions aren't equal on all sides about her story -- Margaret Mary has quickly become the patron saint of the discussion of fair labor practices related to adjunct and contingent workers. The plight of the adjunct is not only very real, it also serves as a marker for the kinds of employment available for those who receive an advanced degree.

Wednesday, October 9, 2013 - 12:11pm
Elizabeth Wijaya/ David Coughlan/ American Comparative Literature Association

With the 2013 publication in English of Volume 1 of Jacques Derrida's The Death Penalty, this is an opportune time to discuss the death sentence, which demands thinking about the limits of punishment and pardon, of death and life, of human and non-human, of the self and State, of the body, and, it can be argued, the ends of philosophy itself.

Toxic Assets: Divestment in the Anthropocene (Abstracts due Nov 1st)

Wednesday, October 9, 2013 - 10:16am
American Comparative Literature Organisation (New York, Mar 20-23)

In order to avoid the most disastrous consequences of global warming, it is likely that we must leave most of the world's remaining fossil fuel reserves unburned. This restriction, however, would turn the majority of fossil fuel assets into toxic assets—valueless resources for which no market exists—in turn threatening global financial meltdown, social instability, and an intensification of our ecological crisis.
