Speaking of program’s being available. SPEP 2009 program is here. Again, some interesting papers, familiar names, intriguing paper titles. There are definite sessions I would go to, if I were attending. Like this one:
Session 2: What Should We Do with Our Brain?
Georgetown Moderator: Elizabeth Rottenberg, DePaul University
Speaker: Daniel Smith, Purdue University
Speaker: Hugh Silverman, Stony Brook University
Respondent: Catherine Malabou, Université de Paris X-Nanterre
There is one person I was surprised to see on the program moderating a panel, someone who often rages against SPEP and the establishment hegemony that it represents, someone who would fight SPEP in a manly fistfight, if SPEP were a person. But then again, there’s rhetoric and there’s life, right? If we all put our money where our mouth is, we’d be out on the street, so it’s understandable that all that rage against the establishment never really translates into an actual stance on, for example, dismissing establishment or boycotting its conferences.
