Special Volume of Frontiers, A Women Studies Journal 41.3 (Feb. 2021): “Staging Feminist Futures”

Special Volume Editor: Kimberly Jew, University of Utah 

Space, energy, temporal fluidity, moving bodies, present voices and affect, witnesses, narrative. The theatrical stage offers a moving, three-dimensional world in which to explore imagined embodiments and emotions, and to momentarily restructure the boundaries of identity, reality and nation. As Jill Dolan argues in her seminal book, Utopian Performance, live performance offers a special power to staged visions of utopian futures through the visceral, action-ready sentiment generated among audience members.

CFP: Chiasma, Issue 6 – Disenchantment

Chiasma: A Site for Thought
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 1, 2019

Chiasma: A Site for Thought is pleased to invite submissions for its sixth issue, on the theory and philosophy of “disenchantment”. While the contemporary world roils from accelerated inequality across diverse sectors of the global population; technological advancement and complexification; proliferating ‘connectedness’; network, information, and media sinkholes within which the distinction between fact and value is increasingly void—and all this in the midst of great political absurdity—disenchantment, in all its Janus-faced nuance, is again critical to be thought today.

Some forecast a post-capitalist, post-scarcity economy in which employment is a sought-after luxury good. In this world, individuals have a guaranteed basic income and can freely pursue liberal studies as part of a flourishing life.    Others foresee a significant expansion of machine learning resulting in a world where wealth becomes even more highly concentrated in the hands of the machines’ owners. In that world, most individuals will eke out a living in a gig economy making use of soft skills derived from their liberal arts education. Artificial intelligence, big data, robotics, and a threat of a pervasive algorithcracy, will have profound implications for the meaning and purposes of liberal studies.

  "Unsilencing Black Sexuality in the African Diaspora" This is a call for papers that offers analysis of Black sexuality studies in Africa and the African diaspora. Essays may address any time period or geographical region. Those that focus on any form of art by Black artists, including film, literature, song, drama/theater, and visual art are particularly welcome. Studies of historical figures are also encouraged. Some topics to consider: How have Black people’s depictions of sexuality changed over time? How have Black people used forms of art to respond to the colonial or dominant “gaze”? How have Black people reclaimed their bodies from the “gaze”? How have Black people defined or redefined sexuality?

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.
