Embodiment at the Margins: Theorizing Bodies and/as Subjectivity in Literature and the Arts

to be held July 6-9 2017 at ACLA in Utrecht, Netherlands

Co Chairs: Lisa DeTora, Hofstra University
Stephanie Hilger, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

What makes a subject?  What imbues bodies with meaning?  What makes them matter? And how does this matter become (and remain) intelligible in social discourse? How can we discuss abject, unthinkable, unliveable bodies that exist outside available discourses?

In the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries “science” meant certain and systematic knowledge, so that what we now think of as humanities (for example, aesthetics or philosophy) could be sciences, while sciences such as chemistry (according to Kant) might still be arts.

ACLA 2017 - Feminist Philosophies of Media

This seminar examines how feminism and media inform and create one another. Media have played a role in the historical positioning of women as they have served as tools of mediation: the typist, the film editrice, phone operators, the virgin as commune between gods and mortals, the psychic medium, etc. Considering this, we find feminist philosophies to be informed through various positions of mediation but are also interested in feminist philosophies that are in conversation with the phenomena of mediation. How does the body serve as an instrument of philosophical inquiry? What are the limits of this instrumentality?

CFP NeMLA 2017: "Queer and Now": Queerness in the Mainstream

Friday, September 30, 2016

On or about June 26, 2015, human character changed. As late as 1991, Eve Sedgwick observed that being queer at that time still meant being someone whose life did not matter and whose very survival was highly uncertain (“Queer and Now”). Yet, our contemporary “now” is a moment which has seen same sex marriage declared a federal right; openly queer persons appear as comedians, TV reporters and characters on shows, in films and recently on the musical stage. No longer “apparitional” in Terry Castle’s well-known sense, queers of the current moment might not be confined to haunting the margins of the social imaginary.
