Pendant les dix années qui séparent les émeutes de 2005 des attentats de 2015, une production culturelle (littéraire, cinématographique, artistique et musicale) a vu le jour en France. La jeunesse issue de l’immigration post-coloniale investit l’espace de débat public pour dire la société française, ou plus exactement une composante sociale relevant de l’espace urbain de banlieue : cette littérature lève le voile sur la ghettoïsation géographique, physique, mentale, et psychique de certaines banlieues, ainsi que sur les injustices polymorphes qui font d’elles des lieux de relégation « à perpétuité ». Elle questionne les droits réservés à ses habitants, citoyens de la France mais se trouvant pourtant en situation d’exclusion.

In the United States, an unprecedented presidential election season is drawing to a close. For good or for ill, it has seen the arrival or return of beliefs which the neoliberal consensus had long ago dismissed as irrelevant: ideologies ranging from a vibrant socialism on the left to a frightening chauvinism on the right, and with an anti-corporate populism seemingly everywhere. To take stock of the rise of these “political heresies,” the editors of exCommunicated are looking for articles and essays that deal with the relationship of the political to the heretical, whether in the context of the current U.S. election or more broadly.

Writing Human Rights in the Post-Cold War World Novel and Film

NeMLA 2017 panel
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

As Didier Fassin writes, the deployment of humanitarian affect creates in us “a sense of belonging to a wider moral community, whose existence is manifested through compassion towards the victims.” For this session, we invite papers that engage the theme of humanitarianism and human rights, as disseminated and made legible in the post-Cold War world novel and film. We are interested in papers that critically engage the resurgence of humanitarian affect and mobilization of empathy in the post-Cold War era—the era defined by the decline in utopian thinking and by the lack of tangible alternatives to liberal capitalism. Are human rights, as Mutua assets, simply the moral argument for the neoliberal project?

While introducing a performance from Hamilton at the recent Tony Awards ceremony, hip hop artist Common described the show as a “gamechanger,” a “cultural phenomenon,” and “simply put... one of the greatest pieces of art ever made.” Indeed it has become hard to talk about Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton without resorting to hyperbole, as it appears to be a watershed moment in Broadway theatre and in American cultural history at large.
