One of the standard maxims of counter-terrorism is that the terrorist's greatest fear is not to be defeated but rather to be ignored. Indeed, terror has always been a communicative tool, and modern terrorism has developed in relation to dual advances in technologies of violence and communication. Nevertheless, the terrorist's quest for attention and visibility is always balanced with a necessary operational concern for invisibility. Clandestine planning activities are interspersed with dramatic and conspicuous outbursts of violence before the terrorist disappears once again into shadows of the underworld.

Papers focused on this year's conference theme of sight, visuality, and ways of seeing are also very welcome.

This session will examine how the notion of seeing and not seeing common in many classical religious texts was interpreted by ancient commentators to elaborate certain epistemological theories. We will consider why ancient interpreters from various religious traditions frequently applied the sense of sight analogously to the act of understanding. 

This session is also interested in papers that specifically focus on this year's theme of sight, visuality, and ways of seeing.

Regarding an ongoing research project at Columbia University, Barnard student Sabrina Singer reflected that when she walks around the campus, now, she wonders: “What else is history going to forget?”[i] The research Singer and her colleagues are doing looks at the historical ties between the institution now educating them and the historical institution of slavery. We were prompted to similar reflections having visited Yale’s Peabody Museum and an exhibit there of Elihu Yale’s gemstones collection. Included in the display is a painting of Yale: he is pictured with a large unfinished diamond ring on his finger, symbolizing Britain’s dominance over India.

Positionality: Place, Race, and Revolution in Indigenous Women’s Identity

Friday, May 26, 2017 - 4:01pm
NeMLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 1, 2017

Abstract:

This NeMLA panel will focus on the ways women have transformed space and place as central to their creation of a self-determined identity. In particular, it will focus on indigenous women’s relationship to geography and gender in the construction of self. Such an autonomous identity subverts the societal expectations and cultural geographies that have forced definitions of race and gender upon 19th- and 20th-century women. This panel would be an intersection of cultural geography, indigenous and ethnic studies, social justice issues, and eco/feminism.
