Cette session qui aura lieu au prochain congrès du MLA à Seattle (3 au 6 janvier 2012) sera consacrée aux représentations contemporaines des femmes face à la loi au cinéma, en littérature et à la télévision. Plus précisément, on cherchera à penser la structure juridique et narrative du procès en tant que mise à mal d'une parole féminine qui ferait trembler la loi patriarcale. Comment revisiter la parole des femmes en procès à l'aune des réformes juridiques mises en œuvre tout au long de la seconde moitié du vingtième siècle ? Peut-on redéfinir le procès en tant que système culturel généralisé où les femmes opposent au discours de la Loi de nouvelles formes de « vivre ensemble » ?

In his "Theses on the Philosophy of History," Walter Benjamin famously reads the Paul Klee painting Angelus Novus, not as a "New Angel" in keeping with the original title of this watercolor, but as an "Angel of History." Benjamin describes the angel as flying backwards (and thus looking at the past) toward the future, blown by a huge storm. This storm, Benjamin says, is what we call progress.

Update: Deadline March 30th: The Politics of the Visual and the Vocal in Caribbean Space

Caribbean Intransit: A Caribbean Arts Journal

From carnival costumes to music, from paintings to folktales, from sculptures to spoken words, artists and storytellers have used the cultures of the Caribbean Basin to create unique expressions that critically filter our perceptions of socio-cultural identity. These artistic forms are historical or more contemporary forays into the region's politics and economies. In recent years, several artists have emerged to illustrate a shared heritage such as Laurent Valere in Martinique and Antonius Roberts in the Bahamas or have solidified their international standing such as Edouard Duval-Carrie. Artist-scholars such as Rex Nettleford and Leroy Clarke have interrogated the critical links and the constructions of identity realized through the artist's eye.
