In Art As Experience, John Dewey writes: “When an art product once attains classic status, it somehow becomes isolated from the human conditions under which it was brought into being and from the human consequences it engenders in actual life-experience.” Dewey also notes that the growth of capitalism “has been a powerful influence in the development of the museum as the proper home for works of art, and in the promotion of the idea that they are apart from the common life."

Wise Latinas: Expressions of Subversion in Latina Writings

Monday, June 20, 2016 - 9:08am
NeMLA: Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

This panel examines writings by Latinas during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. It utilizes Justice Sonia Sotomayor's “wise Latina” figure as a framework for how different writers identify and subvert different forms of social oppression in the U.S. This panel explores how these subversions are created using specific aesthetic conceits that are culturally nuanced and thus provide moments of community fashioned healing and empowerment that are specific to their own communities while also making spaces for solidarity between Latinas.

In his three volume study of technological historicity, Technics and Time, Bernard Stiegler contends that contemporary culture is characterized by the incessant technological exteriorization of our interiors. Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter sustain a constant and seemingly stable feed of our psychological maneuvers in a variety of media. But what happens when the words, photos, or sounds you just posted are subject to commentary, reframing, and sometimes deletion? This is precisely what occurs in online creative writing collaboration.
