“What is ethical innovation?”

Have the last 20-50 years of innovation been a success? How does society view the founder? Is risk appropriately distributed across the innovation dynamic? What roles should the government take in scientific progress? What entities are responsible for technical disasters? How important are individual rights and privacy? What problems should innovators focus on for the next twenty years?

The collection includes a range of essays from both academics and professionals working on ethical issues facing the future of innovation.

19th-century Britain witnessed the convergence of many historical trends that exacerbated disability stigma, even as the era embraced a rehabilitative ethos. The growth of specialized medicine, the expansion of a sprawling asylum system, institutional categorization of the poor, public health initiatives, and the rise of eugenics: all these and more spawned attitudes and practices that worked to disable those who were physically and mentally impaired.

Naturalistic Models of Society and the Novel Form

Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions:

Abstract This panel will seek to explore the changing relationship between scientific paradigms and society’s self-understanding as it is manifest in the novel form. If the novel itself has functioned as a record of the social imagination—a narrative ideologeme as Jameson describes it – this social imagination often borrowed its models from contemporary natural philosophy and later the social sciences. We see examples of this in Balzac’s use of taxonomical zoology, Sterne’s use of Cartesian “animal spirits,” or Joyce’s phylogenetic process in “Oxen of the Sun.” Some of the questions this panel will ask include: how do naturalistic sociological models help to mediate political and aesthetic theories? How do these models affect stylistic developments?
