Cultural Studies and Interdisciplinarity
Difference, Otherness, Dialogue, Translation
Interdisciplinary Conference
Trinity and All Saints, College of the University of Leeds
25.–26.4.2000 — Leeds (UK)
It is time to re-open the question of Cultural Studies and its problematic "foundation" on the principle of interdisciplinarity. The variety of theoretical conceptualisations and general practices of "transgressing" (disciplinary) boundaries – interdisciplinarity, transdisciplinarity, alterdisciplinarity, etc. – continue to raise questions of translation, otherness and difference while generating possiblities for dialogue. The contributions are invited to address the conference topic from various prespectives:
  • the view from "inside" Cultural Studies
  • the view from "outside" Cultural Studies
  • the "hybrid" view
  • the view "from the boundary"

Rationality and Its Alternatives: Models of Health and Illness
2000 Annual Meeting
Association for the Advancement of Philosophy and Psychiatry
13.–14.5.2000 — Chicago, IL (USA)
Both within and without Western culture, the place of rationality in attaining knowledge and wisdom is often challenged. Philosophers and psychiatrists both make judgments about rationality and irrationality in their daily work. What theories and criteria guide these judgments? Are such criteria universal, or particularistic and culture-bound, and if the latter, how are specific rationality criteria selected? Once the issue of judgments is raised, further questions of power, responsibility, and ethical stance arise. Who should be empowered to make determinations of rationality, and what epistemic, ontological, and sociopolitical weight do they bear?
