“Nourishment: Sustaining Resistance” is an inter- and trans-disciplinary graduate student conference at the University of Cincinnati focusing on ways that texts or writing practices nourish and sustain us through times of upheaval and uncertainty. Nourishing can take many forms—from eating a good meal to reading an apt sentence—but all acts of nourishment engage our senses and encourage us to continue working, either as opposers to troubling trends or supporters of positive change.
From abolitionist literature to antiwar painting, from documentary photography to committed filmmaking, the arts have been tools of resistance to dominant ideologies. Artistic practices provide people with a means of dissent in democratic and/or authoritarian societies. Under the cover of visual or poetic metaphors, artists imagine alternative realities that can be read as arts of resistance. The world has witnessed in the postwar era a proliferation of artistic trends, a constant re-evaluation of what constitutes a work of art, a multiplicity of experimentations and explorations, not to mention an ever-increasing diversity of media available to express the artist’s ideas.
