Courtney at IASH

IASH Fellows Speaker Series continuesHide Show
Courtney Miller, graduate student in philosophy, will speak on the topic “The Social Location of the Victim/Survivor of Sexual Assault” at noon Wednesday, Sept. 13, in the IASH Conference Room, LN-1106. Victims/survivors of sexual assault are not understood as occupying a unique social location. Instead, their experiences are typically explained with reference to categories such as gender, class, and race. Miller will argue that victims/survivors of sexual assault occupy a social location that is distinct from other social positions.


edit to update:

Please be aware that this talk contains a graphic depiction of sexual assault and discussion of several rape myths.

CFP: Law-Breaking and Theories of Resistance


Binghamton University
Graduate Conference on Law-breaking and Theories of Resistance

Keynote Speaker:
Gabriel Rockhill, Villanova University

Conference Description:
When is an act of political resistance justified? At minimum, it seems to require that the norms relevant to the act of the resistance must lack the moral authority required to demand compliance. But when does this occur? When norms lose their authority, are all forms of resistance justified? If there are limits to what kinds of resistance are permissible, how could they be determined? Might one resist by participating in an unjust system, but doing so in a deliberately inefficacious fashion? Alternatively, what can be said of methods of resistance that are intended to be effective, but fail to be so? Or, related, what likelihood of success is necessary (if any) in order for an act of resistance to be justified?
This conference aims to consider these and other questions related to political resistance. We welcome any papers which explore normative issues related to such questions. In this context, the contributions can cover, among others, the following topics:
•                Civil disobedience
•                Conscientious objection
•                Complicity with status quo
•                Solidarity
•                Violent disobedience
•                Strategic foot-dragging
•                When and how to resist in a nearly just democracy
•                The moral authority of democracy
•                Small acts of rebellion
•                Distribution of burdens associated with an act of resistance

Submissions:
Please submit abstracts or papers for consideration to BingConference2017@gmail.com by September 15, 2017. Acceptance notifications will be sent out by September 20.
