Hong Kong Studies is the first bilingual academic journal to focus on Hong Kong from an interdisciplinary arts and cultural studies perspective.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

This proposed session for MLA 2018 (NYC, 4-7 January) seeks to explore the relationship between race and beauty in the 19th century. How were Victorian concepts of beauty tied to theories of race? Papers that define beauty in terms of Victorian aesthetic theories are especially welcome, as are papers that deal not only with physical beauty but with beauty in the arts. How did Victorian theories about music and art, for example, participate in imperlalism, colonialism, and / or race theory? This session seeks to deepen scholarly understanding of the ways that Victorians theorized beauty, broadly defined, in relation to racialized evolutionary concepts.

Contemporary Media and Politics

 

‘There is no name for this: we read this as a truism. What is unnameable here is not some ineffable being that cannot be approached by a name; like God for example. What is unnameable is the play that brings about the nominal effects, the relatively unitary or atomic structures we call names, or chains of substitutions for names. In these, for example, the nominal effect of “difference” is itself involved, carried off, and reinscribed, just as the false beginning or end of a game is still part of the game, a function of the system’
