Artful Strategies/Necessary Risks: The Shifting Borders between Success and
Failure

April 20th and 21st on the campus of California State University, Sacramento

Definitions of failure and success are not bound by timeless, objective
criteria but ultimately lie in the eyes of the observer answering to ever
changing parameters of time and culture. Thus what accounts for success in
one context may well be construed as failure in other contexts, by other
observers, or by succeeding generations. The conference aims to lend a forum
to ideas that examine the shifting borders between success and failure in
literature, the arts, history, anthropology, sociology, law, politics,
religion and related fields.

and whether the force be oppressive or emancipatory — within the
specific locality of a metropolitan context, one which is somehow
inflected by local or particular concerns and yet reflects a global,
international, or, at the very least, extra-metropolitan politics. What
role does the city — "modern" or "not" — have in current inter/national
political formations? How does it function as a site of violence or
