WSQ Special Issue Fall 2015: The 1970s
Guest Editors: Shelly Eversley and Michelle Habell-Pallán

The 1970s was a revolutionary moment for women. It transformed the very notion of female power regarding their bodies, their pleasure, and their work. In addition, women's activisms in the decade shaped new paradigms for thinking about race, sexuality, reproductive rights, labor, colonialism, technology and the environment. Inaugural moments in film, music, television, sports, visual arts, and computing remain crucial landmarks in debates and interventions concerning pornography, sex work, sound studies, digital feminism, legal theory, and religion.

Tuesday, June 17, 2014 - 8:16am
FORUM: University of Edinburgh Postgraduate Journal of Culture & the Arts

The role of matter has often been marginalised in much of philosophical thought. Rapid scientific and technological advances in the twentieth century, however, have since heightened the awareness of our place in the world as embodied human beings. This has revealed a pressing urgency to confront the ethical and political implications of our material practices within the dynamic terrain of contemporary times. As such, recognising the importance of material factors has led to an emergence of ways in which our prevailing understandings of material reality can be transformed.

Sunday, June 15, 2014 - 4:44pm
Department of History of Art, University of California, Berkeley

"Money is the root form of representation in bourgeois society." So T. J. Clark put it in 1999. Almost aphoristic in its phrasing, the sentence turns on the set of questions it raises – about markets and money flows, about value and abstraction, about whom money belongs to, about the "social reality of the Sign" and the effect money has on artmaking. Money becomes a central form – maybe the central form – of life, inescapable and intractable. The conditions that shape our present and the failure of the Left to devise a practicable response have only intensified the urgency of the proposition and the questions that ground its pivot.
