Access and Accessibility: Disability is Not a Metaphor

updated: 
Monday, December 2, 2019 - 3:37pm
English Student Association, City University of New York Graduate Center
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, December 31, 2019

Disability has functioned historically to justify inequality for disabled people themselves, but it has also done so for women and [other] minority groups. That is, not only has it been considered justifiable to treat disabled people unequally, but the concept of disability has been used to justify discrimination against other groups by attributing disability to them.

Thresholds, Borders and Boundaries

updated: 
Monday, December 2, 2019 - 3:17pm
The Acacia Group

Friday, January 18, 2019

A threshold marks the end of one space and the beginning of another. Therefore, we may conceptualize a threshold as either a border or an entrance. Borders need not be physical or geographic: they may be ideological, linguistic, economic, psychological, or identified by another theoretical approach. For example, we may consider physical borders between countries or the boundaries between texts, identities, or communities. Boundaries may be immobile and limiting, or they may be transgressed and manipulated; for that reason, a threshold is a paradoxical space where meanings connect or collide. We may examine thresholds within textual content, or outside of the text with regard to literary response and interpretation (e.g.

ALIEN PROCESSES: REPRODUCTION & TIME

updated: 
Monday, December 2, 2019 - 4:16pm
Ekin Erkan/The New Centre of Research & Practice
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 20, 2019

The intensifying intimacy between humans and technology generates “de-naturalized” relations of body, cognition and time. This bodily experience of alienation is not solely technological, but also social. While we can try to escape denaturalization and alienation, we can also consider them as autonomous processes of production and reproduction.

Today, predictive processing determines how control is produced and reproduced technically, whether in drone warfare, high-speed trading, computerized borders, or facial recognition technologies. As attention-management, statistical parameters and machine learning emerge as nonlinear instruments, biology is no longer describable under the strict terms of biopower.

AAIS-AATI 2020 "1950-2020: Cesare Pavese 70 Years After His Death. New Perspectives of Studies"

updated: 
Tuesday, November 26, 2019 - 3:07pm
Iuri Moscardi (PhD student, CUNY)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, November 30, 2019

Cesare Pavese left an unforgettable mark on Twentieth century Italian culture. His multifaceted intellectual personality took many shapes. He was a poet, a translator, a member of the Einaudi publishing house, a novelist: in short, he was a complete intellectual. His literary production was characterized by an extraordinary open-mindedness: he was the first to translate into Italian the American authors who influenced him; with "Dialoghi con Leucò" he reinterpreted classical mythology; he was interested in cinema. Seventy years after his death, what methodologies can we employ to study his work? How  can we interpret his open-mindedness, based on the cultural context of the first half of the Twentieth century and looking at the present time?
