"Life, in Theory"

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 10:32am
European Society for the Study of Literature, Science, and the Arts

"Life, in Theory" refers to the ways in which the principle of life is assumed and articulated by highly specialized disciplinary knowledge, is entangled with media technologies, and is constantly resignified in relation to specific forms of power. Because the concept of life today does no longer provide sufficient ontological ground to distinguish among different forms of life and to guide ethical, political, legal, medical just actions, the conference aims at generating the context for a fruitful discussion on the ecological stakes of theorizing the bios across science, technology, literature, and the arts.

Synæsthesia: Communication Across Cultures

Thought, engagement and the communication of meanings depend upon perception. "Synæsthesia: Communication Across Cultures" is an open-source, refereed journal that acknowledges these varied perceptions and strives to unravel issues of communication practice and contemporary theoretical frameworks. From the subjective-embodied to the objective, interpersonal to mass-marketed, regional to global, academic to corporate, among genders, and across time, Synæsthesia seeks to traverse disciplinary boundaries and advance progressive understanding within and across cultures.
