'I like to reinvent myself — it's part of my job.' – Karl Lagerfeld

In 2014, the 3rd annual Marginalised Mainstream conference will consider the varieties, motivations, and meanings of disguise. From secret identities to theatrical performances, from fictional fabrications to factual concealment, disguises of all sorts are part of mainstream culture.

[REPOST] Edited Collection on the Aesthetics and Politics of Hunger (15 June, 2014)

full name / name of organization: 
Manisha Basu and Anastasia Ulanowicz

Within the past 50 years, practitioners of cultural studies and the humanities more generally have addressed the question of hunger in terms of the immediate, individual body. For example, scholars such as Susan Bordo have considered the ways in which individual practices of self-imposed hunger (for example, anorexia and bulimia) have played a significant role in the maintenance of Western, patriarchal standards of beauty and heteronormative relations. Although this present study acknowledges the contributions made by earlier interventions such as Bordo's, it ultimately seeks to address the question of hunger within a wider, historical-materialist framework.

As humans, we are continually examining how to position ourselves spatially, aesthetically, emotionally, intellectually, and practically in our environments. Today, we face these tasks with new urgency as the devastating impact of global climate change stimulates renewed scholarly focus on the environment. From Ecocriticism to Posthumanism to Deep Ecology studies, the humanities are engaged in a multi-disciplinary effort to understand how humans interact with natural and built environments. This conference aims to engage with and foster discussions around the complex and historically situated ways in which we imagine and inhabit the environment.
