Abstract: This paper looks at the articulation of love, romance, and relationships in popular memoirs and personal narratives by Muslim women. I argue that these personal narratives contest Western hegemonic views of Muslim women’s “secret lives” in two ways. First, they work against the notion of Muslim women who have no agency in their love lives and who are, at best, devoid of any sexuality. Second, by opening up space for different articulations of love (i.e., polygyny, abstinence, arranged marriages), these memoirs ask readers to consider love and relationships outside of the framework of popular Western notions of romantic attachments.

"Friendship, Neighbor-Love, and Enemy-Love: Kierkegaard's Works of Love as (Impossible) Politics" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association, Hyatt Regency Chicago and the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers, Chicago, IL, Aug 30, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-06-20 <>

Abstract: This paper posits an (impossible) politics of love through an examination of Soren Kierkegaard's Works of Love, which (it is argued) is perhaps one of Kierkegaard's most political works. Jacques Derrida's The Politics of Friendship and Carl Schmitt's The Concept of the Political, among other works, helps to demonstrate the political nature of Kierkegaard's model of Christian love.

Abstract: When does a transnational community become a diaspora and why? This paper attempts to answer these questions by exploring the social constructed aspect of diaspora with a case study of Korean diaspora in the United States. The phenomenon of Korean diaspora encompasses a set of cultural, social and post-colonial relations between Korea and the United States for the past 100 years, as well as the internal racial relations and power structure within the United States. The unequal relationship between Korea and the United States has not only formed the motivational factors that promote Korean immigration to the United States, but also influenced the ways in which Korean immigrants experience America and position themselves in the United States. The racial hierarchy in the United States fosters a critical preconditional context in which Korean Americans maintain or seek out their ethnic identity and culture. The key argument in this paper is that Korean Americans’ retention or revival of diasporic identity is not so much a consequence of Koreans Americans’ inherent desire to maintain their ethnic heritage but rather an inevitable phenomenon in white-privileged society that marginalizes non-whites from mainstream social scenes.

4. Slattery, Patrick. "Philosophical Foundations of Love: Ethical Systems that Inform Understandings of Love and Leadership" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the UCEA Annual Convention, Sheraton New Orleans, New Orleans, Louisiana, <Not Available>. 2019-06-20 <>
Publication Type: Symposium Paper
Abstract: The Philosophical Foundations of Education provide scholarly grounding for the concept of Love and Leadership– a concept that is often under theorized and overly simplified in the literature. This essay connects the concept of love to four ethical systems for the purpose of grounding educational scholarship in important theoretical foundations. The author reviews, discusses, critiques, and contextualizes four approaches to ethics: deontology, teleology, existentialism, and postmodernism.

{1} Deontological theories of ethics are rule-based systems that imply ethical obligations for all with a stress on duty. Deontology is derived from the Greek words dei (necessity) and ontology (being), thus implying absolutist standards, which cannot be questioned. For the deontologist there is no higher authority and no greater love than the rule or law.

{2} Teleological systems of ethics derive their name from the Greek word telos (end or goal), and these systems determine the morality of an action from the results it produces rather than the law that was followed. Thus, teleological systems are often called consequentialist ethics. If I do "A" what will be the consequences? If I do "B" what will be the consequences? Various consequences are evaluated in order to derive ethical systems and moral actions. In short, the goal of teleological ethics is to discover the best results.

{3} Existential Ethics is a philosophy committed to personal obligation for the good which cannot be decided by appealing to deontological rules or by anticipating utilitarian consequences in the future. Rather, the "right" can only be decided when confronted by a particular situation. Ethical actions and decision can vary from person to person, context to context, and from time to time—even for the same person. Existentialists often contend that existence precedes essence, thus necessitating freedom for individuals to act but always with responsibility for the other. Existentialists rebel against the essence and universal ethic of the human person.

{4} Postmodern Ethics is the fourth and final system. Writings about postmodernity are contentious, and thus, like existentialism, no singular definition is possible. Some contend that postmodernism has led to the "demise of ethics" and a substitution of aesthetics for ethics–a freedom from oppressive duties, commandments, and absolute obligation in a post-deontic age–where there is no excess and a demand for tolerance. Others contend that the postmodern rejects modern methods of coercive normative regulations in political practice, the philosophical search for absolutes, universals, and foundations in theory while committed to moral concerns such as human rights, love, social justice, peaceful cooperation, individual conduct and collective welfare, ecological sustainability (Bauman, 1993, p. 4).

Various texts that advance scholarship on love and leadership are rooted in one or more of the four systems of ethics described above. All scholarship on love must be examined and deconstructed based on the system(s) of ethics that inform the research. Love is understood differently from each of the four theoretical and philosophical foundations. Any discussion of love and leadership that does not explicitly foreground the philosophical foundations of ethics remains undertheorized, simplistic, and dangerous.

Publication Type: Extended Abstract
Abstract: In this essay I will explore the possibility that if we extend the notion of myths as giving us the experience of being alive (i.e. Joseph Campbell's "transcendent function") to mean the experience of being alive together, then the possibility for the political begins with the duality of the two experiencing the transcendent through and with the other, and that this understanding of myth is apparent in some of the most critically significant and well received films in contemporary cinema released over the past few decades. To explore this notion, I will use the writings of French feminist philosopher Luce Irigaray on the politics of love, Robert Johnson’s book, "We: Understanding Romantic Love" and the writings Carl Jung on feminine and masculine archetypes in myth, in their application to the film "Shakespeare in Love."
