Seeking Contributions for excommunicated (the newsletter of the International Society for Heresy Studies), Vol. 4, No. 2,

While there may be mute heresies of a ritual nature, most of the time, heresy expresses itself in language, and it would not be termed heresy if this dissenting discourse were not in tension with normative ways of talking about faith, doctrine, and values.

This call for papers is a call to re/action.

Speaking on the evolution and significance of black aesthetics throughout film, music, and history, Arthur Jafa recognizes an explicitly reactive dimension in black cultural production, one predicated on the treatment or transformation of given materials. He demonstrates that black creativity and artistic expression in the United States has been elementally shaped by—and in reaction to—the parameters and circumstances of chattel slavery and its violent legacies.
