The (Dis)Order of Things: Mechanisms of Power and Control

updated: 
Monday, April 17, 2017 - 2:32pm
Florida Atlantic University Comparative Studies Student Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 19, 2017

Our Fall 2017 Comparative Studies Student Association Interdisciplinary Conference will focus on questions of power.  Where is power found? How does power exert control? Power and control form the foundation of relationships within institutions (government, gender, self, etc.) but also invite conflict. These concepts serve to establish order and stability, but can also inspire disorder and a desire to destabilize when they become oppressive. Understanding the mechanisms of power and how they exert control, how power and control are distributed, becomes imperative in understanding and possibly resolving conflict.

Spectacles and Performances: Voodoo Aesthetics within Low and High Art Forms

updated: 
Thursday, April 6, 2017 - 10:35am
South Atlantic Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 4, 2017

The pairing of voodoo and literature causes one to immediately think of writers like Charles Chesnutt, Zora Neale Hurston, Ishmael Reed, Toni Cade Bambara, and Jewell Parker Rhodes, as these authors use conjure unequivocally within their literary works. However, voodoo flows more freely in the veins of popular culture than one may realize. Though Christian cultures have largely shunned voodoo as a practice, Western literature has used voodoo as sites of spectacles, moments of revenge, and performances of Africanness. In fact, western literature has a nuanced relationship with voodoo or voodoo aesthetics.

Fan studies has consistently identified media or participatory fandom as an intertextual and self-reflexive communitarian space. Further, scholars have produced extremely important work concerning fan identity in these spaces, theorized mainly around the axes of gender and sexuality (Hellekson and Busse 2006; Stein 2015). However, a sustained examination of the effect of racial identity in these spaces has not yet occurred.
