Graduate Student Association of Fordham University Interdisciplinary Conference

The work of graduate students is an increasingly public business. Graduate students of recent years have new ways of engaging publics, including blogs, Twitter, and personal websites. Katina Rogers argues that "[r]ather than focusing academic work inwardly, exclusively within academic institutions, humanities programs should be preparing students for much more flexibility in terms of audience and engagement." Rogers observes that publicly-minded work has "often been considered distinct from—and, unfortunately, less prestigious than—the research-focused side of the discipline." What's more, graduate training typically features little to no training in how to navigate this brave new world.

Filmuburbia: Screening the Suburbs (book)

Call For Chapter Proposals

"Filmurbia! Screening the Suburbs" (Palgrave-Macmillan, 2016)
edited by David Forrest, Graeme Harper and Jonathan Rayner

A range of invited chapter writers are already in place for this contracted book - which will be published internationally in late 2016. However, in order to broaden and deepen the analysis we seek proposals for chapters in a number of specific areas.

These areas include sexuality and suburban film (e.g. queering suburban cinema); race and the films of the suburbs; conflict and suburban film; Asian cinemas and suburban film (e.g. Hong Kong film and the suburbs, Indian cinema and the suburbs). Though these are our priorities, other areas might be considered.

Deferrals and Disciplines

Adam Katz

This series will address and assess the transformations in the concept of the "human" across the human sciences over the past half-century. The approach adopted is to single out two concepts that can align disparate inquiries, from the post- structuralist critiques of humanism dating back to the 1960s, to more recent studies, driven by both speculation and controlled laboratory experimentation into human cognition. These two concepts are "deferral" and "discipline." Each concept directs us toward a range of issues, intellectual and ethical, and the possible relations between the two concepts suggest further lines of inquiry.
