‘What happens when Derrida, a great thinker, becomes silent? What becomes of Derrida, what becomes of his friends, those who read him, think through him, speak to him?’(Douzinas, “Adieu Derrida”) With this rhetoric question, Costas Douzinas starts a book Adieu Derrida, in which renowned contemporary thinkers (Jean-Luc Nancy, Alain Badiou, Gayatri Spivak, Slavoj Žižek and others) reflect on the intellectual legacy of one of the most important philosophical figures of 20thcentury, Jacques Derrida. Indeed, what does it mean now, after almost 15 years after Derrida’s death, to read him, to think through him, to speak to him?

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.

Through her short career, Shirley Jackson wrote about about haunted houses, dysfunctional families, wayward children, attempts at maintaining a sane work-life balance, as well as restricted, doomed women in a period when Americans were constantly reminded of their civic duties to manage and maintain clean, comfortable, ‘normal’ domestic spaces. But as evidenced by letters from her fans, Shirley Jackson’s approach to domesticity opened up the possibility for something different, something more for women who felt trapped by their home lives.

From #BlackLivesMatter and #TakeAKnee to #WhyIStayed and #MeToo, hashtag activism campaigns have continued to proliferate in recent years. Whether connected to specific in-person protests (#MarchForOurLives; #MarchForScience; #WomensMarch), consumer boycotts (#DeleteUber; #NotBuyingIt), social commentary (#OscarsSoWhite), fundraising (#IceBucketChallenge), humanitarian efforts (#BringBackOurGirls), or social justice campaigns (#OwnVoices), Twitter has become a vital tool for activism and social commentary. Unsurprisingly, academic studies of hashtag activism campaigns have likewise been on the rise as scholars grapple with the benefits and consequences of digital activism.

ReFocus: The Films of João Pedro Rodrigues & João Rui Guerra da Mata

 

With a career that spans over twenty years, João Pedro Rodrigues and João Rui Guerra da Mata are one of the most creative duos in contemporary filmmaking working within the context of Portuguese cinema. Acknowledged by several film festivals (Cannes, Indie Lisboa, Locarno, New York) as major Portuguese directors, and by the Harvard Film Archive as creators whose works “reflect the multifarious history of film, from classic genres to experimental film”, both filmmakers have contributed to the growing interest in Portuguese cinema.

In the guise of her narrator in A Room of One’s Own (1928), Virginia Woolf wittily ponders the material foundations of the equality of the sexes:

 

"My aunt, Mary Beton, I must tell you, died by a fall from her horse when she was riding out to take the air in Bombay. The news of my legacy reached me one night about the same time that the act was passed that gave votes to women. A solicitor’s letter fell into the post-box and when I opened it I found that she had left me five hundred pounds a year for ever. Of the two – the vote and the money – the money, I own, seemed infinitely the more important" (Woolf 1945: 38-39).
