I am planning to propose a panel on humanistic perspectives on crime for the 2017 National Humanities Conference, to be held Nov. 2-5 in Boston. I am seeking presenters to discuss strategies for incorporating humanistic perspectives into community conversations about crime, policing, and incarceration. The arts, literature, philosophy, and history have the potential to bridge disparate perspectives, which is crucial in addressing such a divisive and important issue. Ideally the panel will include a mix of academic and community-oriented perspectives. Topics could include:

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.
