Conference on Democracy and Direct Action: Documenting Indigenous Responses to Neo-Colonialism and Globalization

updated: 
Friday, August 7, 2009 - 5:24pm
Melissa Ortiz, Xicano Development Center

Xicano, Indigenous, and Working-Class communities across the continent are finding new ways to combat and resist the increasing encroachment of global capitalism. While much lip service is paid to the idea of democracy, what we actually see is an increasing intolerance for the basic principles of citizen participation. From simple electoral participation to more complex practices of community development and political organization, most "citizens" do not even possess the basic skills for active participation in a representational Democracy. We have to ask ourselves why?

CFP: (Auto)Mobility and Road Culture (Due 12/15/09)

updated: 
Friday, August 7, 2009 - 4:15pm
Southwest/Texas Popular and American Culture Association (31st Annual Meeting; Albuquerque FEB 10-13 2010)

The growing area of (Auto)Mobility and Road Culture focuses on the cultural significance of motorized transport (cars, motorcycles, scooters, or buses) and roads, ranging from the study of road stories in all forms of media (videogames, films, TV, fiction) to the role of car culture in identity formation to transportation politics and urban history. Join us on Route 66 for vibrant, interdisciplinary investigations of the ongoing popularity of narratives of autonomy and mobility, emerging pedagogy in this area, new methodologies for studying road and map histories, and the impact of digital tools on road stories, images, travel, networking, and scholarship. Our goal is to leave the conference with an anthology project in hand.
