>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
