What is access? How do we expand educational spaces when we take the approach that disability is always in the room?

Jay Dolmage provides the following insight into academic ableism, referring to the “steep steps” of the academy. He writes:

NeMLA 2023 Panel: Ordinary Language Philosophy and Resilience

updated: 
Tuesday, August 2, 2022 - 10:24am
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

How can ordinary language philosophy’s (OLP) picture of language as a shared form of life foster resilience? For OLP, language is a peculiarly stable and resilient reservoir of meaning which we share. Speakers agree in language, in form(s) of life, and, “queer as it may sound,” Wittgenstein writes, in judgments. For Sandra Laugier, this is not intersubjective agreement but rather “as objective an agreement as possible.” When we are beset by pain, trauma, or skepticism, we can resiliently recover from this alienation of the self by recalling the shape of our lives in language.

Let’s Get Digital embraces the timely opportunity to critically reexamine the impacts of digital technology and the barrage of information on our perceptions of reality. Specifically, this panel is focusing on digital art, history, curatorial strategies, critical theory, emergent platforms and forms of creative expression. In bringing together a panel of artists, scholars, and curators we hope to collectively reflect on our present post-internet age, to borrow Byung-Chul Han’s term, ‘the age of like’, and what it means to engage with the digital realm, over half-a-century since its inception.

Thinking the Global South: Method, Theory, Strategy

15 October 2022

Keynote Speaker: Magalí Armillas-Tiseyra, Associate Professor of Comparative Literature, the

Pennsylvania State University and co-director of the digital platform Global South Studies.

 

If the term ‘Global South’, as Magalí Armillas-Tiseyra has observed, ‘serves as a placeholder or temporary

designation for something that it announces but does not properly describe’, its attention to the ‘global’ offers

us a ‘name for the desire to think expansively and therefore comparatively beyond established national,

What is resilience for people with disabilities? What is recovery?

Narratives of illness, trauma and disability are often framed to emphasize recovery. Reflecting on resiliency, constructed ideas of normalcy, and “crip time,” Ellen Samuels writes: “Disability and illness have the power to extract us from linear, progressive time with its normative life stages and cast us into a wormhole of backward and forward acceleration, jerky stops and starts, tedious intervals and abrupt endings” (2017).

In working with disabled performers, disability scholar and artist Petra Kuppers notes the connection between the material oppression experienced by people with disabilities and the performance space. She writes:

As twenty-first century scholars have continued the work of identifying, editing, and giving historical context to writings by early modern women, they have turned increasingly to larger questions of reading and interpreting these works—questions that have recently gained particular attention in Lara Dodds and Michelle M. Dowd's edited collection, Renaissance Formalism and Early Modern Women's Writings.

Disruptive Labor: Early Modern Gender, Capital, and Illicit Work

Disruptive Labor: Early Modern Gender, Capital, and Illicit Work interrogates how some labor is denigrated and yet simultaneously supportive of the formation of the capitalistic markets upon which European nations expanded empires. By focusing on how these patriarchal societies see specific types of work as gendered, this edition explores how the gendering of labor establishes dynamic markets as either culturally sanctioned or illegitimate and, in turn, grapples with how cultural approbation undergirds economic growth.

“Critical theory,” Hortense Spillers has written, “witnesses its most impressive moments of efflorescence in times of crisis”. Yet classical critical theory’s analyses of consumer society, of totalitarianism, of the public sphere, and of culture, were predicated on a wholly different set of crises to those which ‘we’ are now experiencing. Under today’s drastically different conditions of cultural and material production, what tools can critical theory offer for grappling with ‘our current moment’?
