CFP for NWSA 2016 Proposed Panel – Gender and Bodily Regulation -- November 10-13 -- Montréal, Quebec

Wednesday, February 17, 2016 - 12:05am
Ashley Byock, PhD / Edgewood College

We are looking to fill out our panel with engaging research on how bodies are regulated around gender through legislation, policy, and governance. Bodies are often reshaped or even dismembered in literal and figurative ways to support a biopolitical formulation of an idealized populace. Bodies may also be exiled or marked out in ways that confirm a certain status as outsider. Our current papers look at antebellum U.S. slavery and contemporary health care regulation.

[UPDATE]The Future of Human(ity) 22-24 July 2016

Tuesday, February 16, 2016 - 1:12pm
CICAS: Center for Interdisciplinary Collaboration in the Arts and Sciences

CICAS, the Center for Interdisciplinary Collaboration in the Arts and Sciences, invites proposals for its inaugural conference on the theme of The Future of Humanity. In a world where, on the one hand, we are informed that the planet cannot support a human life worth living a century from now and, on the other, that the first human to live to be 1000 years old may have already been born, no topic is more urgent for humans to debate through the lenses of their different disciplines. What is the future of the human species? What does it mean to be "human"? Or, as Richard Grusin (2015) suggests in The Nonhuman Turn, are we experiencing a different kind of "humanity" in the twenty-first century?
