NeMLA 2023 Panel: Ordinary Language Philosophy and Resilience

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.

Regis College, Department of Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities is pleased to Announce a Symposium on the Third Anniversary of the Canonization of Saint John Henry Newman and 77th Anniversary of the first Newman Symposium at Regis College. Friday, October 21, 2022.

Conference Theme: How to be a 21st-century saint. In October 2019, the Church canonized five new saints, including Cardinal Newman. An analysis of Newman’s work and persona offers important insights into the practices and patterns of behavior that define the contemporary Catholic Church, since, in the words of Peter Burke, saints “reflect the values of the culture which sees them in a heroic light.”

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.

The organizers of the 2023 BWWC invite papers and panel proposals interpreting the theme of ‘Liberties’ in global and transatlantic British women’s writing from the long eighteenth century to the present. We ask participants to consider ‘liberties’ not only as a political abstraction but also as part of material and experiential subjectivity. Interpreted broadly, liberties include (but are not limited to) legal rights and freedoms, liberty of the person and bodily autonomy, liberties of creative and artistic expression, liberty of profession and vocation, freedom of movement both physical and social, and self-determination in the private and public spheres.
