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.

Despite the incidence of climate change scepticism amongst right-wing politicians in the United States and elsewhere, there is a near-consensus amongst scientists that current levels of atmospheric greenhouse gas are sufficient to alter global weather patterns to possibly disastrous effect. Writing in the journal Utopian Studies in 2016, the Californian science fiction writer Kim Stanley Robinson observed that: "Climate change is inevitable - we’re already in it - and because we’re caught in technological and cultural path dependency, we can’t easily get back out of it ...

Re-Invoking Global Dialogues on Learning, Un-Learning, and Study

Current neoliberal education on a global scale is dominated by the logic of learning. Specifically, learning is framed as the process of acquiring the OECD/USA-endorsed indispensable skills, competencies, or literacies as the desirable prerequisite for students to succeed in the 21st century. As an effect, education is further collapsed into socialization and qualification (Biesta, 2006), staked primarily on making students into subjects who can fit into the pre-existing order of things.

Signs Special Issue: RAGE

Thursday, December 20, 2018 - 10:38am
Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 15, 2019

Feminists are raging.  This special issue will consider our rage as a global, complex phenomenon that mandates interdisciplinary and intersectional analysis. Rage is historical. Rage can be deeply exclusionary, recognizable as a legitimate emotion for only a privileged few. It is an instrument of patriarchy as well as a potential feminist resource. Rage shapes moral claims for racial justice, movements against gender violence, and opposition to the global rise of authoritarian regimes.  Rage can do so in ways that both extend and depart from the histories of feminist and queer raging that marked late-twentieth-century radical feminism, global organizing against HIV/AIDS, and against police brutality.

Have you taught a place-based course in literature, history, American studies, or the humanities more generally? Have you focused on place in courses on Latinx, African American, Native American, or queer studies? What design choices did you make when creating your syllabus? If you were to redesign the documents for this course, what would you change?

 

I invite participants for a poster session in document design for place-based studies to take place at the 49th annual symposium of the Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature (SSML) in East Lansing, Michigan, on May 16-18, 2019.
