CongressCATH 2002: Translating Class, Altering Hospitality

http://www.leeds.ac.uk/cath/congress/2002/

AHRB CentreCATH
University of Leeds, UK
June 21st - 23rd 2002
Call

Our first conference addresses a crisis created by the continuing
fractures of sociality expressed either as internal estrangement or as
hostility to those perceived as the resident stranger. This first annual
Congress of the newly instituted AHRB Centre for Cultural Analysis,
Theory and History aims to incite new debates around the interrelated
aspects of both the political and philosophical theories of class and
hospitality and their current translations to cultural practices,
analyses and performance.

Class is lived in/as acts of translation both violent and reparative. We
want to explore in new ways how class is thought, assumed, known; how
class assumes, thinks, knows. In reconfigured social and cultural worlds
fissured by cultural and sexual difference and by global relocations of
economic and politic refugees, to what has class been translated; how
does it translate such movements and relocations? Hospitality, an
ethical and unconditional responsibility towards the uninvited other,
has entered current debates both through concrete issues of democracy
and citizenship created by real movements of peoples and social
translations, and through recent philosophical reflections. Translation
serves as metaphor for both transposition and encounter. Alteration
involves both change and the mediation of otherness. Is one contingency
of disciplinary, academic intellectual activity the erasure of class, a
self-erasure, a re-invention? If class as a structure of feeling
functions as a mode of internal estrangement and differencing, how can
we rethink difference on/in the terrain of social hostility or of
hospitality to another, marked as external, who poses the question of,
and an interrogation from, the place of the stranger? The conference
will explore issues of conceptualisation and classification, the
economies of hospitality and estrangement, migration and transformation,
ethics and alterity, participation and realignment.

The conference aims to enliven a transdisciplinary space, projecting
debate between intellectual divisions, between disciplines and modes of
analysis from art to philosophy, from Jewish Studies, Cultural Studies,
Postcolonial Studies to architecture and film, from feminist theory to
post-modern philosophy.

We invite abstracts of not more than 200 words for papers to be
submitted by 15 December 2001.
