Special Issue 2008

"Trauma in the Twenty-First Century"
Guest editors: Kate Douglas and Gillian Whitlock

This issue of Life Writing seeks to explore the ways in which life narratives of
trauma are circulating in contemporary cultural landscapes. What events and
memories are considered 'traumatic' in the contemporary world and why? Whose
traumatic memories are commemorated in the public sphere? And what is the
political utility of these traumatic memories? What are the implications of
representing an event or memory as traumatic, or in representing an individual
or community as traumatised?

Built Spaces: Earth-Sky and Human Praxes

APRIL 27-29, 2007 — Simon Silverman Phenomenology Center: Duquesne University

The material expression of the human life-world is constructed by establishing patterns oriented through, and by, the earth-sky relation. Human socio-cultural praxes manifest spatially through establishing the fundamental spatiality, “a level”—an equilibrium that is formed through the collusion of the upright posture of the lived-body and the earthly horizon, marking the measure of the earth-sky relation and human experience.

  The Gothic and the Sublime: Romanticism and Reason
   
  As I was walking among the fires of Hell,
  delighted with the enjoyments of Genius;
  which to Angels look like torment and insanity.
  I collected some of their Proverbs. – William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, 1790
   
  How should we read these famous lines from Blake's masterpiece? What is the place of Reason in religion? Passion in morality? The Gothic in the Sublime – and vice versa?

  The Ethics of Passing
   
  The concept of "passing" is not new to the American landscape. While racial/ethnic passing may be the most widely recognized form of passing, recent acceptance of queer and transgender studies reveals passing as more than a matter of skin color. The most general question, what are the ethics involved and undermined in participating in passing, opens the door to many other questions surrounding this issue. Does the actor always have control over her/his own ability to pass? What does it mean that someone can be passed without desiring such recognition? What kind of responsibility is involved in revealing ethnic, sexual, or gender "authenticity" if even the notion of the authentic has become problematic?
