Theme: Emmanuel Levinas and Interreligious Dialogue
Type: 8th Annual Conference and Meeting
Institution: North American Levinas Society
PA ( ) USA
The North American Levinas Society is excited to announce that our
eighth annual meeting and conference will take place July 28-July 31,
on the theme, “Emmanuel Levinas and Duquesne University
As “culture wars” and regional conflicts around the world continue to
enlist various religious traditions and worldviews, it seems timely
to open robust, deliberative meditations on how Emmanuel Levinas’
“ethics as first philosophy” might help shape edifying interreligious
dialogue for building peace and justice. For our 2013 conference, we
invite you to bring your questions and concerns on these matters to
Levinas studies in
North America, in order to open a number of
discussions concerning, but not limited to, issues such as:
- Developing concepts and practices for interreligious and interfaith
- The influence of religion in war zones, from stoking conflict to
- The interreligious dimensions of post-conflict resolution and
- The role of religion in educating for social activism and
- The voices of women in building interreligious dialogue
- The postsecular intersections of religion and critical theory
- The environmental aspects of interreligious dialogue
- The affect of interreligious dialogue on indigenous rights and
- The possibilities of postsecular and interreligious responses to
poverty and economic inequality
- The existential dimensions of interreligious dialogue and
We hope that scholars use this conference to take part in the ongoing
conversation about the ramifications of Levinas’ thought for various
faith and non-faith traditions. Although preference will be given to
papers that address the conference theme, it is Society custom to
consider papers and panels on any topic related to the work of
Our eight annual conference program will continue to include
important Society traditions such as our annual Talmudic Reading from
Georges Hansel, a pedagogy session, Society banquet, a film
screening, and provocative plenary presentations from James Marsh,
Leah Kalmanson, and others.

Scenes from the History of the Image (Research Triangle
Park, 28 Jul-9 Aug 13)
July 28 - August 9, 2013
Deadline: Feb 22, 2013
Scenes from the History of the Image: Reading Two Millennia of Conflict
Thomas Pfau, Alice Mary Baldwin Professor of English & Professor of
Germanic Languages and Literatures,
David Womersley, Thomas Warton Professor of English Literature, St.
The purpose of this seminar is to explore primary and critical writings
related to the history of the image. It should be said at the outset
that this discussion is not an attempt to run a seminar in art history.
Rather, the objective is to trace how, in the course of Western
history, images have functioned (and how their role has been
conceptualized), first in religious practice and philosophical
theology, and more recently in literature, philosophy, aesthetic
theory, and phenomenology.
At this time in history, Western culture is arguably awash in images to
a degree never before experienced. Digital culture has made every image
and visual artifact virtually accessible to a vast number of
individuals in the developed and developing worlds. Elaborate databases
such as ArtStor and Oxford Art Online, as well as general-purpose
search engines (Google Images) facilitate the retrieval of visual
materials with very little censorship or accountability interposing
itself on the part of the provider or end-user, respectively. At the
same time, the capacity of images (cartoons, photographs, paintings) to
unleash public controversy by tapping into otherwise submerged
religious, political, or cultural energies and antagonisms seems
undiminished. More than most textual forms—whose impact is typically
attenuated by the hermeneutic demands that their linear and
propositional presentation makes on readers—images seem uniquely
capable of bypassing or suspending a more guarded and reflexive
The traumatic force with which the images of the falling
September 11, 2001 impacted and shaped the political imaginary of an
entire generation of people in the
and the Western world, United States
or similarly iconic moments such as Robert Capra's famous photo of a
soldier's death during the Spanish Civil War, Nick Ut's photo of a
young Vietnamese child burned by napalm, Charlie Cole's 1989 snapshot
of a young man in a white shirt blocking the advance of tanks in
Mohammed—all attest to the image's undiminished capacity for
concentrating and unleashing vast reservoirs of moral and political
energy. It thus does not surprise us to find political and religious
establishments from around the world that are far more preoccupied with
controlling (or even expunging) images than with articulating a
coherent message or rationally engaging their perceived opponents.
Among the more egregious instances of such practice might be the Afghan
Taliban's March 2001 decision to detonate the early sixth-century
Buddhas of Bamiyan, or the G. W. Bush administration's ban on releasing
photos of the coffins of dead soldiers flown back from
So as to understand the deeper histories that resonate in such
controversies, and indeed set the formal and moral parameters for them,
this seminar will seek to undertake an archeology of the image in its
various dimensions: viz., as material object, as a medium (often in
close competition with text), as formal-aesthetic artifact, and as the
correlate of a distinctive kind of human intentionality. To that end,
the 2013 SIAS seminar will successively explore five historical and/or
formal ways of considering the image—each time through a mix of primary
and secondary literature.
Application Deadline: February 22, 2013

Philosophy and Public Issues

Aims and Background
The relation between politics and religions should not necessarily be seen
as a problem or reason of conflicts, but it could be understood within the
broader issue of what attitude liberal-democratic states should show
towards religious and cultural diversity. This problem is particularly
important in contemporary societies characterized by a plurality of moral,
political, and religious views. Separating ‘the church’ from ‘the state’
does not rule out the accommodation of some religious claims. However, the
limits of and the justification for such an accommodation are extremely
divisive matters, especially when religious minorities seem to be a threat
for the liberal-democratic institutions.
In this special volume of Philosophy and Public Issues we are looking for
papers that explore the relationship between religion and politics from
moral, political, or legal perspective.
We expect original contributions discussing problems such as:
- the separation of church and state;
- the issue of the accommodations religious claims in pluralist societies;
- liberal theories of toleration;
- the question of liberal neutrality and the place of religions in public
- political secularism: principles and applications
… or any other relevant topic subject to the Editors’ approval.
The special issue will include a discussion on Robert Audi’s Democratic
Authority and the Separation of Church and State (OUP 2011), with
commentaries by Mario De Caro, Jocelyn Maclure, Domenico Melidoro, Michael
Perry, Paul Weithman, followed by Robert Audi’s replies.
Please send a (.rtf, .doc or .docx) file containing a long abstract (1,000
words max) and a title, prepared for blind review with all revealing
references to the author removed. All personal information (name,
affiliation, and contact) must be submitted separately, along with a short
abstract (200 words max). Deadline for abstract submission is May 15,
2013. Decisions will be made within a month.
Upon notification of acceptance, you will be invited to submit the full
paper (10,000 words max) no later than September 1, 2013. The volume will
be published in December 2013.
Contributions that do not make it to the volume may be considered for
subsequent publication in one of the regular volumes of Philosophy and

New materials on Ukrainian folklore in
available online Kazakhstan
Dear Fellow list members,
I want to draw your attention to some new materials. We have indexed and posted the materials that I collected in
. Ukrainians arrived to
the area northeast of Kazakhstan
at the turn of the 20th century. They came in response to the Stolypin reforms
and were pioneers who established villages. Later waves of immigration came
with the Khrushchev Virgin Lands policy and in the 1970s. All in all an
interesting group who have developed their own language (khokhliatskii) and
their own version of rituals. Pavlodar

Please note that the pull-down menu on top of the box to the right goes by village – so photos from individual villages are here.
We have also posted some songs on
This is a site where volunteers can transcribe and translate recordings. Would love to have you try working with these. The songs are in Ukrainian, even though the people themselves speak a Ukrainian/Russian mix they call khokhliatskii. Would welcome your feedback about these songs. Are they familiar? Are they similar to or different from the songs you know?
