Intersex And The Pardoner’S Body, Kim Zarins Jan 2018

Intersex And The Pardoner’S Body, Kim Zarins

Accessus

Most scholars today have retreated from reading into the Pardoner's body in favor of more figurative readings that emphasize his lack of masculinity, and such lack is then linked to his dejection and despair. Other, more affirming readings center the Pardoner's performance, which allows him to model any sort of body desired through figuration. While such positions dominate and older theories like Beryl Rowland's proposal of an intersex Pardoner are dismissed, in fact, an intersex reading might be a more life-affirming interpretation, not only in terms of reframing the Pardoner's body as manifesting variation as opposed ...

Richard Lewontin And The Argument From Ethos, David J. Depew Jan 2018

Richard Lewontin And The Argument From Ethos, David J. Depew

Poroi

This essay uses rhetorical analysis to defend the population geneticist Richard Lewontin from accusations made by E. O. Wilson and others that his Marxist social philosophy distorts his empirical science. I suggest that Lewontin’s appeal to his own authority as an experimental evolutionary biologist supports his claim that racism has no biological justification and that it is his opponents whose assumptions about society distort their scientific arguments.


A Neurorhetoric Of Incongruity, Michelle Gibbons Jan 2018

A Neurorhetoric Of Incongruity, Michelle Gibbons

Poroi

As a conceptual resource for rhetoric, contemporary neuroscience has considerable potential. Yet how exactly rhetoricians should deploy it as such requires careful consideration. While some engage neuroscience in a foundationalist fashion, using it to ground rhetoric in empirically tested claims, I make the case for a non-foundationalist approach, arguing that neuroscience can serve as a resource for rhetoric on the basis of epistemologies that value the speculative, indeterminate, and contingent. That is, we can use neuroscience to achieve perspective rather than proof and continued conversation rather than resolution. More specifically, I suggest placing neuroscience in incongruous contact with rhetoric, using ...

Listen In Silence: Narrative Medicine With Interprofessional Teams, Deepthiman Gowda Md, Mph Dec 2017

Listen In Silence: Narrative Medicine With Interprofessional Teams, Deepthiman Gowda Md, Mph

Collaborative Healthcare: Interprofessional Practice, Education and Evaluation (JCIPE)

My interest in health humanities began in medical school when I took an elective on literature and medicine with Robert Coles. Reading works by Raymond Carver and William Carlos Williams, we explored the patient's experience of illness and probed the ethical and emotional challenges of giving care. It seemed as if a curtain had been pulled to reveal marvelous hidden rooms, places where new understandings of health and illness could be had. I recognized that some things that were true about illness could not be understood using a scientific lens. The singular, lived experience of those who are sick ...

Science and feminism share many similarities, but we don't all think the same. Identifying as a scientist or feminist is not the point. It is important we do not politicize these philosophies in the modern era.

Quill & Scope

In Cooperstown, New York, the halls of the National Baseball Hall of Fame are drenched in timeless jerseys, oil-stained gloves, and an array of tarnished bats donned by the heroes of the sport. While some of these idols ended their careers with a tip of the cap, carrying their achievements proudly, enshrined in statues and plaques, others may have not been so lucky. Like the myths of demigods, some heroes meet their demise too early. By providing innovative insight into the lives outside of the baseball diamond of some of the most prolific baseball players of America’s pastime, this ...

Certain triggers like heat and stress cause her to become partially or totally paralyzed and experience painful neck spasms called dystonia. Her disease is so rare that little is known about it to this day. Further research would help improve the quality of life of Maddy and other children living with AHC.

A New Generation For Art And Science, Alice Marie Perreault Dec 2017

A New Generation For Art And Science, Alice Marie Perreault

The STEAM Journal

My interest in this cross-over between art and science, specifically, the body and supportive technologies, has lead me to mixed media and installations where I can examine degeneration and a “new” generation using a combination of conventional and unconventional materials. Unlike re-generation, which is a return to an original state, “new” generation gives way to new arrangements.
