THE POLITICS OF MEMORY IN CONTEMPORARY U.S. VISUAL CULTURE

updated: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2017 - 2:13pm
SAMLA 89 South Atlantic Modern Language Association Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 31, 2017

This special session investigates the function of memory in U.S. visual culture, tracing political significance of remembering particular historical events in a contemporary moment. Indeed, judging by recent examples—including Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway sensation Hamilton, Theodore Melfi’s blockbuster Hidden Figures, and John Lewis’s graphic novel trilogy March; the representational backwards-gaze upon the national past seems to enact, at a minimum, influential political critique and, at a maximum potential, art-based activism. We welcome proposals for 15-minute papers that consider the political stakes of memory and remembrance in any visual artifact (broadly defined) that engages U.S. culture.
