While generally misunderstood as a nihilistic musical genre that peaked in the late 1970s, punk rock has evolved into an anti-authoritarian subculture with diverse and sometimes conflicting aesthetics and political orientations. Punk was once portrayed as a genre of music that was against anything and everything. However, punk sub-genres (and the communities that have risen up around them) such as peace punk, crust, riot grrrl, and queercore have inserted the political and social concerns of critical inquiry front and center into their music, fanzines, and social activities, transforming a music fan bases into decentralized activist communities.

Stream CFP: Feminism’s Affective Imaginary: Narratives, methods, time

CAPACIOUS Affect Inquiry/Making Space Conference - August 8 to 11, 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018

This stream explores how the orientations of affect might make space for alternative conceptions of feminism’s narratives, methods, and temporalities. It draws from the productive dialogue that has emerged between feminist and affect studies especially in the new millennium, and attends to the discursive politics that shape the stories (Hemmings 2005, 2011) by which feminism has come to be known. The focus of this stream is twofold, and attempts to trace the affinities between its concurrent, overlapping lines of inquiry as follows.
