"Grey is flexible, malleable; it can be pushed and pulled in different directions, worked and reworked into new, unanticipated materiality and meaning. Grey is not fixed: it both reflects and absorbs light, and it extends the spectrum between black and white, between the extremes of all other colors. Grey has the capacity to move its viewer beyond the materiality of paint. [...] Grey is the color that best describes this perspective on the twentieth century, the metals in which it is built, the factories in which it is produced, the cities in which it is lived" (Guerin, 2018, 7-8).

In the last few decades, scholars in the Humanities have found it necessary to examine the fundamental underpinnings upon which their disciplines are built. One of the primary questions that animated this re-examination has been regarding the very terms of our engagement with countries and communities that inhabit radically  different  social  and moral life-worlds, living as they do outside the orbit of European Enlightenment values that still regulate both organization and practice within and outside the academy, across the world.

“Modern?” CFP

 

Saint Louis University—Madrid, June 7-8, 2024

 

The OED defines “modern” as “being in existence at this time; current, present,” but also as something that is “opposed to the remote past.” Given that the concepts of “past,” “present” and “future” are not fixed, but, to paraphrase Einstein, illusory, the meaning of “modern” itself is hard to pin down.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 1, 2024

On June 23rd, 1985, a bomb detonated on Air India Flight 182, enroute from Toronto to Delhi. All 329 passengers and crew aboard were killed, most of whom were Canadians of South Asian descent. Though this tragedy remains the largest mass murder in Canadian history and resulted in Canada’s longest and most expensive criminal investigation, it is little known in national public memory (Angus Reid Institute 2023). Institutional narratives and failings have framed the Air India bombing as a “non-Canadian tragedy involving non-Canadian citizens” (Seshia 2017), leaving the victims’ families suffering and ignored in the wake of such loss.
