What is access? How do we expand educational spaces when we take the approach that disability is always in the room?

Jay Dolmage provides the following insight into academic ableism, referring to the “steep steps” of the academy. He writes:

What is resilience for people with disabilities? What is recovery? 

Narratives of illness, trauma and disability are often framed to emphasize recovery. Reflecting on resiliency, constructed ideas of normalcy, and “crip time,” Ellen Samuels writes: “Disability and illness have the power to extract us from linear, progressive time with its normative life stages and cast us into a wormhole of backward and forward acceleration, jerky stops and starts, tedious intervals and abrupt endings” (2017).

Cinema’s Natures: Comparative Approaches to Ecocinema

Film scholars are today well aware of cinema’s multiple connections to the so-called “natural” world. From the very beginning, the medium’s technical affordances allowed it to draw attention to the hitherto unseen aspects of our environments, showing us in close-up and time lapse the minutiae of animal and plant life – what Siegfried Kracauer famously called the “reality of another dimension” (1997). More fundamentally, cinema’s longstanding dependence on a congeries of natural resources – silver, petroleum, gelatine – and the effects on screen of its inescapable “hydrocarbon imagination” (Bozak 2011), situate it both with and against the world it depicts.

This session explores cultural intersections between the theory of the literature and the topics pertaining to the visuality through iconographic figurations, reflecting creative resilience and bio-sustainability in modern times. Proposals are sought that consider ecocritically the convergences of literary representations and figurative arts in a comparative diachronic light, or those with a particular focus on envisionment of contemporary aspects and the nowadays context.

Underlying questions of the project include, but are not limited to:

The Conference on College Composition and Communication’s position statement on Scholarship in Rhetoric, Writing, and Composition (2018), starts from the premise that the majority of writing scholars will find employment in English Departments, Writing Programs, Writing Centers, etc. The statement goes on to acknowledge that “rhetoric, writing, and composition scholarship addresses how texts are composed, conveyed, and received in a variety of media and for a variety of purposes and audiences, both inside and outside the academy. Scholars investigate writing processes and products in schools and universities, in academic disciplines, in the workplace, in the public arena, in the home, and in digital/virtual environments” (n. pg.).

What does it mean to call someone “the picture of health”?

The WHO’s 1949 constitution stated that “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” More recently “One Health”—a model of health that includes the social contexts and environmental situation that limits or conduces to both individual and communal healthfulness—has emerged.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS Journal of Comparative Literature and AestheticsSpecial Issue: New Perspectives in African Philosophy  Guest Editor: Adoulou N. Bitang (Tel Aviv University, Israel) For over three decades, from the middle of the 20th century onward, reflection about African philosophy revolved around the question of its existence or non-existence (following that of the capacity of Africans and Blacks to philosophize), or the other question of its nature (i.e., its characteristics, especially in relation to European philosophy). To a certain extent, African philosophy is still concerned with these questions today. For the most part, this treatment of African philosophy has a colonial background and bears a colonial flavor.

Health, Illness, and Injury in Professional Wrestling

A Special Section of a forthcoming issue of Survive and Thrive

Recent commentary has focused on the declining health and lack of access to health care among professional wrestlers (e.g. John Oliver's commentary here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8UQ4O7UiDs).  Hired as contractors, not employees, and so often denied benefits (from health insurance to retirement), professional wrestlers become, as they age, tragic:  celebrities in their prime for their physical prowess, as they age, they launch gofundme pages to cover the costs of essential medical care.

Regis College, Department of Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities is pleased to Announce a Symposium on the Third Anniversary of the Canonization of Saint John Henry Newman and 77th Anniversary of the first Newman Symposium at Regis College. Friday, October 21, 2022.

Conference Theme: How to be a 21st-century saint. In October 2019, the Church canonized five new saints, including Cardinal Newman. An analysis of Newman’s work and persona offers important insights into the practices and patterns of behavior that define the contemporary Catholic Church, since, in the words of Peter Burke, saints “reflect the values of the culture which sees them in a heroic light.”
