CFP Affinities #4 – What is Radical Imagination: Horizons beyond "The Crisis"

Edited by Alex Khasnabish and Max Haiven

The social crises of neoliberalism, so evident and provocative throughout the rest of the world, have finally come "home" to the global North in the form of a cataclysmic financial crisis wreaking havoc on the lives of people, workers and communities, intensifying already intolerable injustices and inequalities and justifying the intensification of surveillance, policing and militarization.

American Studies Association of Texas

We are looking for scholarly essays, nonfiction, essays, or creative works that explore the rhythm and beat of literature, history, and culture. What is the influence of rock and roll on literary production? How does culture come alive through music? How do we teach a generation used to picking and choosing music for an IPod?

While the conference theme is noted above, we will consider all topics related to American Studies.

The conference will be held in San Angelo, TX Nov. 12-14. For more information, contact John Wegner (john.wegner@angelo.edu) or Terry Dalrymple (terry.dalrymple@angelo.edu).
