Feminist Sites, suicide and self-harm

You may not associate all the terms above, but it looks like some people may. At least that’s the conclusion I draw from the notices I received about why my SKY server blocks fitness is a feminist issue For their default sign up category.

I don’t have time to investigate this right now, but clearly we need to check it out, unless some one of us knows of an innocent explanation that tells us adolescents are not blocked from feminist, etc, sites.

Love and Vulnerability:

In Memory of Pamela Sue Anderson

2:15 pm Friday 16th March to 1:00 pm Sunday 18th March 2018
Mansfield & Regent’s Park Colleges, Oxford

Attendance Free

This conference focuses on Pamela Anderson’s wonderful, but largely unpublished, late work on love and vulnerability but also includes reflections on her earlier writings. The event is interdisciplinary and international, reflecting Pamela’s achievements in British and European Philosophy, Theology and Feminism and her influence in Europe, North America and China. Speakers include her teachers, colleagues and former students. While focusing on love and vulnerability, participants will explore connections with related themes drawn from her work, such as forgiveness and its limits; dialogue; epistemic injustice; self-confidence; nonsensicality; ineffability; and vulnerability in relation to invulnerability, violence, human and divine affectivity, narrative, friendship, thoughtfulness, resilience, belonging, and enhancing life. Her engagement with Kant, Wittgenstein and the French philosophers, Henri Bergson, Paul Ricoeur, Simone de Beauvoir, Emmanuel Lévinas and Michèle Le Doeuff, will also be represented. The portrait of Pamela’s passionate commitment to making sense of what it is to be human will be shared through a special issue of Angelaki: journal of the theoretical humanities.
