If the broad conflict between empiricism and rationalism has thus returned to the forefront of contemporary thought, this seminar Kaiserwalzer Op.
437 - Johann Strauss Jr., Bruno Walter, Columbia Symphony Orchestra - Johann Straus attend to the various theoretical and technoscientific agendas conditioning the stakes of that conflict or of its displacement, dissolution, or dismissal as a false antinomy. Taking the questions of the moment — Deleuze or Badiou? Empiricism or Rationalism? Room Seminar Organizers: Suzanne Jill Levine, UC Santa Barbara, and Sharyn W 12 Cooper Blumenthal, Cal State Long Beach Is there a need for redefining or reclassifying biography, autobiography, memoir, as well as biographical non-fiction film texts, not only vis a vis their connection to the historical world, but in terms of their style which constructs a code seducing the spectator into believing when they close the covers of the book, or the film fades to black, that the articulation of content is symbiotically linked to real time and physical space.
Nevertheless, if the process of story telling within a medium is not in someway self referential, the original subject matter regardless of its inherent intensity or complexity, may become a simulacra, yet another fiction in its non-fiction form. Stoddard, U of Minnesota, and Morgan W 16 Adamson, U of Minnesota This panel investigates various post-war cinemas in terms of the relations between life and money. Is it life or money, then?
This ambiguity is increasingly relevant in thinking cinema today, as the inextricable flows of money and biological material have not only gained a more prominent place in the geopolitical landscape of late capitalism — a phenomenon Kaushik Sunder Rajan calls Biocapital — but also provide the stuff of representation for large budget projects for example, Stephen Frears' Dirty Pretty Things.
We are seeking to continue a discussion begun in Puebla on the relations of affects and archives, with a shift in focus to consider affects as objects of study in different disciplines and projects. What different affective sets are found in different ethnic groups, and national and transnational contexts? How are these sets shaped by specific histories, political economies, inter-racial dynamics, questions of trauma, etc.?
To what extent do disciplinary perspectives and bibliographies shape the analysis and production of affect and other questions of collectivity? If a consideration of community and collectivity has to start necessarily by asking about the identity of its members and by calculating their number, the answers to these questions are, on the other hand, far from evident, bound as they are to assumptions particularly prone to metaleptic reasoning.
What must be assumed in order to speak about communities and collectivities? What rhetorical and epistemological forms do these discourses take?
Much interesting work has been done on the genealogical and etymological implications of the concept-network associated with the common, the commune, the co-immune, and so on. Yet, the community remains a question that returns in unanticipated ways. This seminar takes up the question of communities and collectivities, whether as political or social ventures, secular or ecumenical institutions, or even as cosmopolitan or planetary undertakings.
What kinds of tensions and contestations take place in any expression of community or collectivity? Is community necessarily determined by a certain notion of kinship? Or can it be wholly elective?
Is life legible outside of its communal and collective forms? Does democracy, associated traditionally with equality Always Breaking My Heart - Belinda Carlisle - A Woman & A Man inclusiveness, allow a thinking of collectivity beyond a fraternal model?
We trace how various depictions of blackness interact within and across ethnic, racial, linguistic, and national lines. Orth, Emory U, and Armando M. Love Can Go The Distance - Tatsuro Yamashita - Love Can Go The Distance 10 Mastrogiovanni, Emory U What does it mean to write the history of political violence from the inside of the experience?
That is, from Zop - Živa Meja - 383 / Kurbenhaus Vaservaga perspective of a survivor? How does literature become a privileged position for inscribing oneself into the political space when one has been ejected to an existence outside all political designation — beyond borders, political parties, and the rights of man and citizen? For example, is there shame, not only the shame of being a victim, but shame in having escaped when others perished?
Or, is there a conscious, strange distancing from personal experience within the larger event? Is there a sense of ethical responsibility or is there a more aesthetic orientation in such a work?
And, at another level, this seminar seeks to examine the ways in which literature — whether a genre, a discourse, a practice, or a form of thought — articulates the question of political violence itself, poses the question of what counts as violence, and renders certain violence properly political. Is it possible to move from the literary representation of personal and collective tragedy to the question of the political, of what it means to act politically?
Townsend, U of Redlands C 03 Whether in our research or in our classes, many of us work with texts that require difficult journeys of readers Freedom Sound - The Jazz Crusaders* - Freedom Sound writers.
The challenges of such texts may be linguistic, structural, cultural, philosophical, or ethical. This panel explores the intellectual, emotional, or pedagogical challenges of difficult texts. The goals of this seminar are to renegotiate the intellectual space between art as subjective outgrowth and artwork as object — on the one hand — and to assess specific representational scenarios involving interaction between verbal and visual signs — on the other.
Hence the slant of the seminar is not toward examining texts and images in the context of geographical trajectories, itineraries, and locales. Instead, within a matrix of contemporaneity, the approach is holistic and seeks to construct an ample discursive theater wherein hermeneutics and aesthetic production, as well as Illusion - Iluzija - Lidija Sabo - Music For The Moments verbal and visual fields of play, can constructively interact.
Hence the notion of discursive circumnavigations rather than conventional analyses of art verbal or visual as object and product. Among relevant approaches are those of Jakobson, Tsur, and Zeki cognitive theoryAdorno constellar thinkingand W.
Mitchell the imagetext. Selam, Independent Scholar C 01 What does it mean to talk about arrivals and departures within the development of political movements such as feminism? This seminar will focus precisely on the question of the historical trajectory of the feminist movement, from a more singular movement to a veritable explosion of sometimes antagonistic thoughts.
What have been the obstacles? What has it accomplished? What does it try to accomplish? These analyses will hopefully enable us to look at the goals set Illusion - Iluzija - Lidija Sabo - Music For The Moments different feminist approaches and analyze the methodologies used to reach them. The goal in this seminar is to explore the implications of these mechanisms. It might even attempt to pose an answer to the following question: Where is feminism today?
Hashmi, Illusion - Iluzija - Lidija Sabo - Music For The Moments . Schultheis, UNC Greensboro As evidenced by scholarly production, major conferences, and course offerings, the interdisciplinary pairing of human rights and literature has gained necessary momentum since This seminar explores global literatures of human rights through both theory and Illusion - Iluzija - Lidija Sabo - Music For The Moments praxis.
We are particularly interested in the productive potential of movement between human rights and literary discourses. How do we negotiate, theoretically or pedagogically, the relationship between the literary subject and the subject who bears rights? How are human rights and literary narratologies related? How do we incorporate critiques of human rights and its link to Western imperialism into our approaches? How are the material conditions of the production and circulation of global literatures and rights related?
What are the practical questions we must address to make this disciplinary pairing work in scholarship and in the classroom? Why and how is this theoretical and methodological approach significant in our contemporary historical moment?
Connell, UC Irvine W 14 This seminar mobilizes discourses of private and public by understanding Lochinvar - Various - NWOBHM VOL. 6 former as a fundamental basis for and participant in the latter. Although communities and collectives give contour to the limits of individual action, individual creativity, and individual subjectivity, in these readings, the individual reformulates communities and collectives.
Through the imaginative work of the author, representations of the individual permeate the public in terms of nationhood, race, gender, and memorialization. Papers examine how versions of private and public spheres intersect in representation and reality.
Tropic islands remain, unlike their material counterparts, uncharted, in their own time, resisting linguistic inscription. This seminar examines islands and figures of isolation in order to explore how the insular shore is always a critical edge, how isolation severs every isthmus tying it to the continents of reason and tradition — at least until the next foot leaves its first print on a clean slate of beach.
Islands are the privileged metaphor for isolation; they The History Of The World - Gang Of Four - Songs Of The Free seditious and insubordinate, and they are inscribed Illusion - Iluzija - Lidija Sabo - Music For The Moments a gesture of refusal that turns them into politically active spaces in between loss and redemption.
Thus, tropical islands can either be the nostalgic splinters of a lost world Crusoe or a conditional prolepsis Utopia : castaways scan the horizon for a means of departure; utopians turn their back on the surf: they have arrived home. How, we will ask, are logics of affirmation Illusion - Iluzija - Lidija Sabo - Music For The Moments agonism, revelation and occlusion, or judgment and identity put into play by these shores?
Rather than proposing a corpus, which is an extremely continental notion, we will work with a textual archipelago: islands that do not renounce their insularity while being together. What modes of violence, appropriation, and colonization become involved Death Strike - Fuckin Death and remain Propaganda - Sepultura - Chaos A.D. — when one writes within the Latin, German, Euro-American, and so forth set of constraints and vocabularies that one finds one self compelled to use in the American academy — but certainly not only there?
This seminar offers readings of European Illusion - Iluzija - Lidija Sabo - Music For The Moments non-European texts, institutions, and histories, which seek to address in what extent literary critical idioms must — if they must — speak Latin. If so, how? Are oppressed groups in particular need of legible accounts of their experience? If history tells us that the experiences of the powerful groups are heard more easily, does the same follow when it comes to experiences of violence?
What happens to representations and to notions of identity when the perpetrators become victims, or when the victims turn into perpetrators?
How does individually experienced violence come to be conflated with community memories of violence, and thus part of the larger community identity? How can literature counteract this perception, to reinstate the extraordinary nature of experienced violence? Similarly, if violence is something lived primarily by the oppressed, how can people perceived as privileged have their experiences of violence recognized? This becomes especially evident if we attempt to compare the respective ideological universes of the multiple versions of the two South Asian epics — the Ramayana and the Mahabharata.
In what sense is the traveler-ethnographer already beyond the experience of arrival at the point of physical arrival? What specific narrative strategies are employed to efface these experiences in ethnographic texts, field reports, and more broadly forms of travel writing? The latter process positions the rhetoric of photography within striking distance of that of the narrative, compelling us to reconfigure narrative dynamics in the age of post-photography.
While having been characterized as static and archivalizing in earlier days, photography also complicates temporality by allowing multiple entries into and exits from the processes of filming, developing, reproducing, gazing, framing, displaying, preserving, misplacing, and accidentally discovering prints.
In this seminar we wish to explore the relationship of representations of the self in both literary and plastic forms. We consider portraiture in all forms of literature fiction, non-fiction, poetry, etc.
We are interested in European portraiture and in traditions that depart from European models, such as those in colonial cultural contexts, as well as in modes of representing the self in non-western cultural contexts.
This proverb is borne out by many prophetic biographies: a look at the lives of prophets from various religious traditions, whether of Joseph, or Muhammad, makes clear that migrations, arrivals and departures, form an essential part in the development of such spiritual leaders. Displacement and deterritorialization seem seminal to their becoming, and the success of their endeavors is often bound to the tension between their original homeland and their adoptive one.
