On_Culture Issue 16 (Spring 2024): Ways of Reading

With the sixteenth issue of On_Culture, we want to explore various approaches to reading cultural artifacts and events in an attempt to answer the question: What are the affordances of particular forms of reading and what do they bring forth? While the ability to decipher words and distinguish individual characters is perceived as a key skill and taught from an early age, philosophical traditions introduce us to critical approaches to interpreting broader cultural phenomena.

Exploring human dominance, gender, and heteronormativity through cyborgs and AI in films

updated: 
Friday, March 24, 2023 - 9:11am
PAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 31, 2023

Films have for a very long time been used to form a narrative that may oppose what the heteronormative society believes and that is why probably it is one of the most popular forms of artistic expression. When we think of films like Her or the Japanese anime Ghost in the Shell we see the use of technology in brilliant ways. It shows how easily humans are replaceable emotionally as well as physically. But how well do these films and many others like these refute the social conditioning that often clouds our visions? Is the world of cyborgs too dystopian for humans to survive in? Or just like any ‘other’ cyborgs and AI will just become another way for the powerful in the human world to exert dominance?

This panel seeks papers that address any aspect of the laws and customs, broadly defined, of the early modern sea. It aims to foster an interdisciplinary dialogue about such norms, one that transcends geographical, linguistic, and methodological boundaries. Topics may include (but are in no way limited to) maritime law, naval warfare, piracy, cartography, navigation, international trade, the lex mercatoria, ship building, and the political question of open seas. Papers that consider the literary or artistic conventions governing the depiction of ocean space are welcome too.

This panel will be part of the Renaissance Society of America’s annual meeting in Chicago (21–23 March 2024).

The international journal Thaumàzein will devote a special issue to the topic of philosophers’ philosophical writing.
