Subject: 8th Interdisciplinary, International Graduate Conference
 
C A L L  F O R  P A P E R S
 
The Departments of German Studies, Philosophy, English and American
Studies,
Media Sciences, Political Sciences and Social Sciences at the University
of
Erlangen/Nuremberg, Germany, invite young scholars 
(postgraduates and assistant professors) to present papers at our 
conference:
 
Ethics and/or justice after postmodernism:
Revisioning media, politics, and the arts in the 21st century
 
8th Interdisciplinary, International Graduate Conference 
at the University of Erlangen/Nuremberg
 
November 23 - 25, 2007                 
 
Keynote address (to be confirmed):
Axel Honneth (Frankfurt)
 
Poetry Reading by the Austrian-Jewish writer Robert Schindel and ensuing
discussion with Klaus Holz (Dortmund)
 
The reformulation of ethical narratives may be seen as one of the most 
prominent signatures of the current political debate, of mass-media 
communication, and of present literary and artistic productions. The 
conference will focus on this recent 'ethical turn', observable in these 
various and heterogeneous fields. However, does the focus on ethical 
questions (as centering on the individual) exclude claims for political, 
social, gender or ethnical justice, or are they mutually dependent?
 
The conference will ask whether the increase in subjects concentrating
on 
ethical issues indicates a return to traditional and normative
positions, 
marking the end of postmodern relativity and indifference. In this
context, 
the present hostility to theory could be just as significant as the
notable 
process of re-essentializing reality constructions previously put into 
question by theories of difference.
 
Or, on the contrary, is the recent ethically based debate to be seen as
a 
continuation of postmodern theories, insofar as the implicit question of 
justice in poststructuralist thought has now turned into an explicitly 
ethical-political discourse, facing the conflicts and challenges of a
global

and post-capitalist world?
 
Taking this into account, how can politically just and ethical actions
be 
constituted and legitimized without the (religious, metaphysical, 
anthropologic) grands récits that have traditionally served as their 
foundation? How can theorists ground their arguments if they continue to 
pursue poststructuralist ideas, when they have been employed to
deconstruct 
the basic assumptions that have anchored western identity?
 
 
With our interdisciplinary and international conference we would like to 
discuss what space justice and ethics occupy in contemporary everyday
life 
and in the present academic discourse. In what ways do issues concerning 
ethics and/or justice appear:
 
- in the media and in the arts (as return to narration, as new forms of
a 
littérature engagée, as remembrance culture)
 
- in politics (as forms of inclusion and exclusion; as justice of 
recognition and redistribution)
 
- in disciplines such as philosophy and the social sciences, which 
theoretically and practically analyse forms of acting ethically and/or 
justly
 
 
Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
 
- Ethics of deconstruction/deconstruction of ethics
- Justice between remembrance and history
- Ethics and narration
- Interculturality, intercultural ethics and hermeneutics
- Ethics and (cultural) translation
- Media theory as media ethics
- Governmentality and biopolitics
- Ethical action between subjectivation and technologies of the self
- Gender justice
- Construction of (national) identities
- Self and other; inclusion and exclusion
- New antisemitism
- Borders (political, aesthetic, religious)
- Boundaries of the human
- Religiousness and fanatism, terrorism and fundamentalism
- Trans-marxist critique of culture, post-marxist politics
- Limits to postmodern liberalism
- Global society - global ethics
- Ethics in contemporary art and film 
- Concepts of love, hospitality and friendship
 
 
 
Please register using our online submission form at
http://www.gradnet.de
The deadline for paper proposals (max. 200 words) is September 9, 2007.
 
For scholars who wish to attend the conference without giving a paper
the deadline for registration is Friday, 16 November 2007.
 
Panels with three to five speakers will last two to two and a half
hours. The time allocated for each paper is about 15 minutes to permit
ample time for discussion.
The official languages of the conference are English and German.
 
You will be notified whether your proposal has been accepted by Friday,
16
September 2007. In the case of scholars travelling from outside Germany,
we
shall endeavour to reach decisions earlier in order to facilitate travel
arrangements.
 
Before the conference, each contribution (approximately 6-10 pages or 
3500-4500 words) will be posted on our web page in order to facilitate
discussion and 
scholarly exchange. The deadline for the submission of these short
contributions is October 21, 2007.
 
Selected papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
The conference fee is 20 EUR.
 
The University of Erlangen-Nürnberg is proud to be able to offer three 
bursaries. The conference fee and accommodation costs will be waived for
up
to three 
scholars whose papers have been accepted and who come from nations whose
scholars cannot normally afford to attend conferences in Western Europe.
Applications for bursaries,
including a curriculum vitae, should reach us by Friday, 23 September
2007
