Radical Kinship - Tufts University (Deadline: May 7)

updated: 
Thursday, January 29, 2015 - 6:38pm
full name / name of organization: 
Tufts Graduate Humanities Conference

RADICAL KINSHIP

Keynote: Omise'eke Tinsley, University of Texas at Austin
Conference Date: October 16, 2015

Kinships that cross boundaries often entail radical decenterings of family, community, or subjectivity. What happens when Yellow Peril supports Black Power in Ferguson? When Maggie Simpson holds up a Je Suis Charlie sign? When, in a single frame, Kordale and Kaleb dismantle stale notions of Black masculinity, queerness, and fatherhood?

Can we undomesticate kinship?

"The Cultures and Politics of Leisure in the British Isles & the United States" (November 6-7, 2015)

Leisure is a central rather than a peripheral feature of culture. Indeed, the divide between leisure and "productive work"—to which it is traditionally opposed—has never been an impassable wall, but rather a porous boundary involving dynamics of control, negotiation, and hybridization. Far from a mere holiday or retreat from society, leisure represents a specific domain of activities in which core social and cultural values and structures are expressed, reified, transmitted, learned, manipulated, and resisted.

Trespassing Gender (deadline: March 15th)

From its inception, gender studies analyzed the boundaries and binaries of gender to show that both are socially constructed. Earlier studies investigated the creation and institutionalization of gender boundaries in the realms of culture, politics, and economy as well as the link between gender boundaries and gender inequality. Drawing on critical race theory, feminists who demonstrated that boundaries of gender always interact with that of race and class opened up a fertile terrain for the study of intersections, as well as how gender boundaries interact with the production of hierarchies.

Conference papers invited to explore the literary, cultural, and theoretical aspects of food and feasting in traditional outlaw narratives, or texts that have characters who are outsiders, tricksters, transgressors, or marginals. This session will consider the presence and function of food and feast in texts (broadly defined), with an eye to considering whether and how instances of food preparation and eating can be said to display, to develop, or to subvert the conventional ideas of community and fellowship most commonly associated with foods and feasts. This session encourages papers that examine post-medieval texts, cultures, and practices, especially Australian, Native American, Pan-American, and Eastern.
