                                         ECOLOGY AND INTEGRATIVE DISCOURSE: A REFLECTIVE ANALYSIS

CONCEPT NOTE

 

The word eco comes from the Greek word oikos, which etymologically implies household or earth and logy from logos implies rational discourse. Together they mean criticism of the house- the earth as represented in writing.  It is therefore defined in general, as the study of literature and the physical environment put together. However, in larger context, it incorporates numerous variants of human life.

The primary aim of this edited volume is to explore the word ‘Literature’ in the age of AI. Etymologically, the Latin word litteratura is derived from littera (Latin) meaning the ‘smallest element of alphabetical writing’ (Klarer 1). The word ‘literature,’ then means, any writing e.g., a medical prescription, usage instruction written on the bottle of shampoo or maybe a cautionary warning on the packet of cigarettes. To specify the particular type of literature we use the term ‘Creative Literature’ (called the Literature of Power by Rees).

In July 2023, a tech startup called “Simulation Inc” released an AI technology that the company claims will make it possible to generate entire t.v. episodes—including dialogue, voice acting, animation, and editing—from nothing more than a two-sentence prompt. Somewhat oddly—and provoking suspicion that the project might be a hoax or internet prank—Simulation Inc’s website lists a fake address under their contact info: 500 Baudrillard Drive, San Francisco, CA. 

Reproductive Justice and the Humanities in Times of Crisis: Hybrid Symposium

updated: 
Thursday, November 9, 2023 - 3:44pm
University of York, UK and online
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 15, 2024

Reproductive justice was developed as an international human-rights framework by activists and scholars in the 1990s and has become a cornerstone of intersectional feminist theory and practice within social sciences. Yet, it is only recently that researchers in arts and humanities have begun to tap the rich interdisciplinary potential this framework offers for bringing together reproductive rights, social justice, and cultural representation. In a contemporary moment shaken by ecological and economic crises, rises in far-right nationalisms across the globe, and the rolling back of hard-fought sexual rights in the USA, attention to questions of reproductive justice across the disciplinary spectrum is more urgent than ever.

In 1950, the pioneering mathematician and computer scientist Alan Turing asked the world: “Can machines think?”

Published in his article in Mind when he was 38 years old, Turing’s question emerged from a life of relentless imagination. By then, Turing had applied his brilliance to help the allies win World War II and revolutionized computing—creating the foundation for much later developments in AI technologies and machine learning. His intrepidness included living as a gay man in a society that would criminalize and cause him irreparable harm for it.
