A Woman Well Reputed? Porcia/Portia from Antiquity to the Renaissance

Cato’s daughter; Brutus’ wife.  This panel will consider the figure of Porcia in the Renaissance, where she is to be found in a wide range of cultures and genres.  From the earliest accounts, Porcia has been something of a a paradox: heroic and vulnerable; the masculine soul who is also the devoted wife.   No woman in history can have passed into legend more closely defined by her menfolk; let’s give her some room of her own.

 

Topics might include, but are certainly not limited to:

 

National traditions (eg. Spanish lyrical Porcias; French tragic Porcias)

Exemplary Porcias

Porcia in the visual arts

Female suicide: strength or weakness?

Gender transgression

Cinema: Journal of Philosophy and the Moving Image invites submissions for its 8th issue devoted to the philosophy of Karl Marx and its links with cinematic art.

Marxism, as a tool for social analysis and transformation, has influenced politicized and progressive filmmakers such as Sergei Eisenstein and Sembène Ousmane, in theory and in practice, as well as shaped theoretical discussions around film and history, aesthetics, economics, and ideology. Key topics of this discussion have been reproducible art and active collective experience (Walter Benjamin) and cultural and social hegemony (Antonio Gramsci), among others.

Transfusions and Transductions: Science and Performance as Permeable Disciplines

Transmit, transmute, transduce, transfuse: scientific and medical discourses have long relied upon the prefix “trans” to convey the mutability and permeability of living organisms, distant or tiny objects, and inorganic matter. Change is both a celebrated result of scientific advancements and an ominous harbinger of malignancies, disruptions, and decay. As with the clinical laboratory and astronomical observatory, the theatre serves as a reflexive and generative site of transformations, a place to penetrate barriers and test innovative ideas, approaches, and practices. This working session places transdisciplinarity at the core of its mission to identify and explore meaningful convergences of the fields of science and theatre.

WALKER PERCY'S UTOPIAS AND DYSTOPIAS

Much of Walker Percy’s fiction and non-fiction writing is social commentary. At least two novels - Love in the Ruins and The Thanatos Syndrome - may be called dystopian or post-apocalyptic.  His numerous essays on race relations, on secular materialism, on misguided “self-help” books in a postmodern world seem to indicate that he suspected 20th century America was a dystopia itself.  Additionally, Walker Percy’s personal life included social action in his local community and through the Catholic Church.  Proposals addressing the SAMLA 88 theme "Utopia/Dystopia: Whose Paradise Is It?" in Walker Percy’s fiction, non-fiction, or life are welcome.  Send 300-word abstracts, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Dr.
