The International Society for Heresy Studies

In the United States, an unprecedented presidential election season is drawing to a close. For good or for ill, it has seen the arrival or return of beliefs which the neoliberal consensus had long ago dismissed as irrelevant: ideologies ranging from a vibrant socialism on the left to a frightening chauvinism on the right, and with an anti-corporate populism seemingly everywhere. To take stock of the rise of these “political heresies,” the editors of exCommunicated are looking for articles and essays that deal with the relationship of the political to the heretical, whether in the context of the current U.S. election or more broadly.

Pendant les dix années qui séparent les émeutes de 2005 des attentats de 2015, une production culturelle (littéraire, cinématographique, artistique et musicale) a vu le jour en France. La jeunesse issue de l’immigration post-coloniale investit l’espace de débat public pour dire la société française, ou plus exactement une composante sociale relevant de l’espace urbain de banlieue : cette littérature lève le voile sur la ghettoïsation géographique, physique, mentale, et psychique de certaines banlieues, ainsi que sur les injustices polymorphes qui font d’elles des lieux de relégation « à perpétuité ». Elle questionne les droits réservés à ses habitants, citoyens de la France mais se trouvant pourtant en situation d’exclusion.

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Although experiences of disability have been an integral part of American life, disability has traditionally been approached as a research object in medicine and the social and rehabilitative sciences and, as Brenda Brueggemann maintains, continues to be dominated by the medical discourse up until today despite an increase in alternative approaches. Ann Jurecic has argue that well until the second half of the century, little attention had indeed been devoted to individuals' first-person perspectives on their bodies and selves as well as on a disabling social and physical surrounding.
