Edited Essay Collection (book).

Much has been said about the state and failure of Black relationships in North America. Books like “Is Marriage for White people” by Ralph Richard Banks, gain traction by highlighting that Black women are three times as likely to remain single as white women. Research has shown that absent fathers produce a cultural cycle of parental absenteeism for Black men and women, and the repetitive traits that lead to divorce are environmental rather than genetic. Bottom-line, there are countless barriers and hurdles stacked against black relationships. Many couples struggle with the outside pressures that racism and social discrimination present.

Transcendentalism:  Men and Women Conversing

In a collaborative call from the Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Margaret Fuller and Louisa May Alcott Societies, we invite proposals for papers to be presented at the next Thoreau Gathering in Concord, MA (July 11-14, 2019) on dialogues between men and women of  the Transcendentalist movement.   When Emerson looked back at Transcendentalism, in “Historic Notes of Life and Letters in New England,” he recalled men and women who read adventurously, became friends, formed a club for conversation, and launched  a magazine.  They were talkers as well as solitaries.  Across the apparent divide of gender, what did they have to talk about?

The Canadian Review of American Studies is seeking papers for a special issue on the work of French psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan and extensions of this work. The editors are interested in papers that might address the reception of Lacanian theory and clinical practice in North America. How has Lacan been taken up across the transatlantic between North America and Europe? Further, what is the state of Lacanian theory and psychoanalysis today in relation to mental health? How might Lacanian psychoanalysis speak to the current North American state of affairs? We are broadly interested in papers that explore psychoanalytic approaches at the intersection of aesthetics, poltics, ethics, history, gender studies or clinical work.

Perseverance builds character.

How does perseverance come about? By rising through a struggle, whether it is a provoked or unprovoked event that questions one’s ability to endure and survive a hardship. It is through one’s suffering and survival of such hardships in life -whether physical or mental - that one is able to build upon their character, thus leading to hope.

We are able to see these modes of struggle and perseverance in various facets from ethnicity, gender, and politics, to name a few, and we would like to hear, learn, and share them in our publication.

Networks of Experience: Art and (Dis)Embodiment

Contemporary Art, Design and New Media Art Histories Graduate Student Conference Conference Date: March 15 - 16, 2019
Location: OCAD University, 100 McCaul Street, Toronto, Canada

Any encounter between an audience and a work of art is experiential. Beyond this universal dimension, much contemporary art asks more of its viewers than just viewing. These works engage multiple modes of observation, sensation, participation, reflection, and (dis)embodiment that have the power to affect and engage bodies in new and adaptive ways.

Marginalized Style: Studying Fashion from Below to Promote Liberation

 

In Beyonce Knowles-Carter’s 2016 single “Formation,” the artist highlights her southern, black heritage to the black diasporic history that went into the making of her racial and ethnic background. As Beyonce proudly announces her racial identity, in the same stanza, she articulates that identity through the lens of fashion. She feels “so reckless when I rock my Givenchy dress (stylin')/ I'm so possessive so I rock his Roc necklaces.” The references to the French designer Givenchy and her husband’s jewelry collection demonstrates how Beyonce frames her understanding of her black heritage through her attire.
