Red on Red: A Symposium on Post-Socialist Art and Critical Theory (April 8-9, 2016, Yale University)

A discernible boom in politically engaged, leftist art practices and critical theory is underway in Eastern Europe and Russia, China, and in post-socialist countries of the Global South. This boom defies all expectations, emerging after the depoliticizing "transitions" to capitalism of the 1990s and the seemingly reactionary historical moment. Activists and art collectives, critics, poets, grassroots filmmakers, and video, performance and digital artists of all stripes are seeking alternative spaces for engaged aesthetic experimentation. In many cases, these aesthetic producers return to the emancipatory promises of earlier political and aesthetic experiments, reimagining them for the digital age.

Kate Chopin International Society

The Kate Chopin International Society welcomes proposals for two panels to be held at the 2016 ALA Conference in San Francisco, May 26-29, 2016.

The first panel, a roundtable on "Teaching Kate Chopin in Different Contexts," seeks short (seven- to eight-minute) papers/remarks that address either teaching Chopin juxtaposed with works/genres or in courses with which she is not always associated or in educational settings such as continuing education programs, prisons, women's shelters, literacy programs, or online programs. We also welcome proposals that suggest innovative technological approaches to teaching Chopin's works. Proposals should include a title, your name and affiliation, and a paragraph about your proposed remarks.
