Abstract 
\n This project presents a counter-narrative for the spinster, aiming to correct a prevalent, reviled image of unmarried women specifically in the Modernist period between 1885 and 1945 when transatlantic political reform made independent living more widely available to women in the across the English-speaking world. Literatures of this period both reflect on and produce imagined lives for single women. Considering the nonnormative sexual and social worlds of economically independent women, serial monogamists, "fallen" women, celibates, lesbians, and "failed" heterosexuals, all of whom appear as spinsters in modernist fiction, allows readers a subtler understanding of women's thought and experience during a transitional period in gender history.\n

Glasscock Building GEO:30.617332;-96.338489 SUMMARY:On Heidegger's National Humanism: A Symposium on Derrida's Lost Geschlecht III (Day 1) DESCRIPTION:This symposium will focus on a recently discovered text by the twentieth-century French philosopher Jacques Derrida. Geschlecht III presents us with a meticulous reading of what Derrida calls Heidegger's "national-humanism": the nationalistic undercurrent in Heidegger's thought that posits German and Germany as the privileged media through which to think the essence of the human and its relationship to the fate of the West.\n\n Bringing together a renowned group of scholars\, including the French editors and English translators of the text\, the event promises to open up a less visible - but absolutely essential - dimension of Heidegger's politics\, a dimension somewhat occluded by the recent scholarship on Heidegger's Black Notebooks. In Geschlecht III\, Derrida goes after Heidegger precisely in places where Heidegger denounces the biologico-racial ideology of the Nazi Party. The sinister irony that Geschlecht III teases out is that\, just when he seems to be at his least nationalistic\, Heidegger ends up surreptitiously affirming a more profound kind of nationalism.\n\n This event is supported by a Glasscock Symposium and Small Conference Grant.

\n "Disaggregating 'Japanese' Doctors in Colonial Korea: A Preliminary Prosopographical Analysis"\n

Abstract
\n Japan's colonization of Korea from 1910 to 1945 is often characterized by its fine-toothed organization of colonial bureaucrats that regulated every aspect of the lives of its twenty million colonial subjects. The role of Japanese medical doctors is also understood in this light of colonial micro-management. What is problematic though is that this broad depiction of Japanese doctors as quintessential instruments of colonial biopolitics is made only with a study of a handful of exemplary cases that can be conveniently pigeonholed into a stereotypical image of colonial medicine and its practitioners. In this project, Kim analyzes prosopographical features of Japanese doctors as a whole, with a view to significantly advancing our understanding of the nature of medical science in the development and management of Japan's most significant colony.\n

This paper attempts to reconcile the popular appeal of Said's Americanness, which facilitated the publication of his autobiography in the Atlantic Monthly in 1867, with his text which has little to say about his Civil War service.
