Currents of the Black Atlantic, ESA 2014 Conference

updated: 
Wednesday, September 18, 2013 - 7:44am
CUNY Graduate Center English Student Association

Two decades since its publication, Paul Gilroy's _The Black Atlantic_ (1993) united conversations about race, diaspora, modernity, and slavery within the Atlantic world. As its point of departure, the conference theme takes after Gilroy's ethos of looking outside of established racial and nationalist categories. Conference participants will look within and beyond disciplinary boundaries. By revisiting the roots and routes—the philosophical genealogies and the future directions—of _The Black Atlantic_, we aim to bring together the ongoing conversations among students and faculty who have engaged with Gilroy's heuristic paradigm.

Panel: Cultural Politics of Blackface

In an open letter last year award-winning playwright Bruce Norris drew a line in the sand regarding the use of Blackface in theater and called for the boycott of any institution that still used the practice. In explaining his decision to revoke the rights of the Deutsches Theater to stage his play "Clybourne Park," he noted that while he generally refrains from "meddl[ing] in the cultural politics of other countries" he now found the need to adopt a "zero-tolerance position" on the use of made-up white actors to portray Black characters.
