DrewTCC 2015 : Drew University Transatlantic Connections Conference (Ireland)

Association for the Study of Law, Culture, and the Humanities
2015-03-06 to 2015-03-07
Georgetown University Law Centre, Washington, D.C., USA
This year, the Association will not have a specific conference theme in order to encourage the broadest range of participation possible. The Program Committee believes that the diversity of the Association's members is its strength and that the themes that emerge from the conference should arise organically from the various interests of the members, without an overarching subject-matter directive. Accordingly, we encourage proposals of panels or papers around any of the broad themes that engage with law, culture, and the humanities.

Binary oppositions define their counterpart through difference: Good/Bad, Light/Dark, New/Old, Nature/Technology, East/West, Sacred/Profane, etc. In an age when the personal is political, such systems, which function by means of difference and exclusion, contain potentiality for problematic results. Binary oppositions have dominated the theoretical landscape for centuries, structuring our language, thought, actions, research, and expression. Is this an inescapable framework for structuring reality or is an alternative possible?
